APC Kano Rally: Tinubu speaks for less than two minutes

The presidential train of the All Progressives Congress stopped over in Kano earlier on Wednesday, January 4, 2022, and was welcomed by a mammoth crowd.

In the company of the governors of Kano, Jigawa, and Zamfara states, the APC Party Chairman, and other top party officials, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu rode into the stadium in an open roof bus before making his way to the podium, where he spoke for less than two minutes after some of the party’s bigwigs, including the Vice Presidential candidate, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, had addressed the crowd in mostly Hausa language.

While addressing the crowd, Tinubu neither discussed his manifesto nor go into detail about his plans if elected during his less than two-minute remark.

“Kano, Kano, Nigeria, Nigeria, Nigeria. Today I have come home to Kano. All I want to do is dance. “I want music,” he said when he opened his speech.

After the very short musical interlude, the presidential candidate then continued with what would be the conclusion of his address to the crowd that had gathered since the break of dawn to catch a glimpse of the candidate and other chieftains of the party.

“Nagode Kano. Lord will give you Albarika and will keep your family in peace and harmony. I will serve you. I will keep my promise. Always, always, always. Thank you. Nagode, nagode, nagode. Thank you,” he said while ending his speech.

Asiwaju Tinubu is one of the three major candidates out of the eighteen presidential candidates contesting for the highest office in Nigeria. The other two major candidates are former vice president Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Mr Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP).

Kano is one of the key battleground states in any presidential contest in Nigeria. Many political analysts believe that the APC has a better chance of winning in Kano than others, in spite of the growing influence of the New Nigerian Peoples’ Party (NNPP) led by Alhaji Rabiu Musa Kwakwanso.

Before the Wednesday rally, Tinubu had met with Muslim leaders from the Northwest and paid a visit to the palace of the Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero.
