The members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) turned out in their thousands on Saturday to welcome the
Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu stormed Kano today, October to a tumultuous welcome on a 3-day official visit.
Eye witness account said that from the entrance gate of the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport to the security area, it was a sea of heads who waited patiently to catch a glimpse of him.
Tinubu who arrived Kano at mid day was received by the Governor of the state, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje alongside Jigawa and Zamfara States Governor, Alhaji Badaru Abubakar and Alhaji Mohammed Bello Matawalle, respectively.
The presence of a huge crowd of supporters at the airport tarmac forced the cancellations of the airport ceremony, as organizers brought a tinted black SUV Jeep that conveyed him to a waiting bus where prominent stalwarts were already seated.
Similarly, huge presence of party faithful that lined up major streets where he was billed to follow saw Tinubu travel one and half hours as against five minutes drive to Club road where he commissioned the Kano State APC Campaign Council Office.
Tinubu, who appeared overwhelmed by the large turnout of party supporters upon disembarking from the bus raised his hand high in the sky to acknowledge the jubilant crowd.
The presidential candidate, accompanied by a long motorcade also moved to Audu Bako Way where he commissioned the Kano APC Campaign Coordinating Office.
Tinubu is expected to commission the Kannywood Office in the state capital, and later be treated to a dinner with members of the Kano business community.
