President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived in Kano for a 2-day visit which paralyzed business activities in the state as shops and others places of busineses were locked while a mammoth crowd thronged to the airport. Buhari, while speaking in Kano, said that if the Elections were free and fair, he already has the people of Kano in his pocket.

"I am overwhelmed by the massive turnout of people who left what they were doing to welcome me".

"I know the elections".

President Buhari said the north is important to the country, because "If there is peace and stability in the north, there will be peace and stability in the whole country and if there is a problem in the region it will affect the entire country". "So we have to make sacrifice to prepare the youth for the future", Buhari said.

Buhari also gave the inmates an undisclosed amount of money that will enable them transport themselves to their respective towns and villages.

Comrade Aminu Abdulsalam, who served as Kwankwanso's commissioner for inter-governmental affairs, told Vanguard, last night, that the former governor and his associates were not invited for the functions relating to the President's visit.

The president on arrival visited the Emir's palace and the Central prison to grant Amnesty to some inmates.

"I am very grateful to God and the people of Kano for the complete trust you have in me", he said.

On that occasion, the President enjoined other governors to emulate Dr. Ganduje's efforts in the health sector.

The governor then named the hospital as Muhammadu Buhari Specialist Hospital.
