President Muhammadu Buhari is expected in Kano State on Thursday, for the presidential rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ahead of his arrival, residents of the state and APC supporters have converged at the Sani Abacha Stadium in the state.
With security beefed up before the Commander-in-Chief’s visit, the State’s Commissioner of Information, Mr Mohammed Garba, said the government and people of the state are ready to receive the President.
He, however, explained that the President might also commission some projects executed by the Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s administration pending his schedule.
“It depends on the schedule of Mr President. I want to assure you that we are indeed prepared to receive Mr President.
“As you can see, we have worked round the clock. We have quite a number of projects which if time allows, we will convince Mr President to see some of them that have been executed by the Kano State Governor”.
With the presidential election less than three weeks from now, President Buhari is seeking a second term in office.
Buhari, being the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate plans to campaign in Kano which is considered the state with the second highest number of registered voters in the country.
