2019 Elections: Kano Is In My Pocket–Buhari Boasts

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday visited Kano where he hinted that he will be seeking re-election in 2019.

Speaking at the Palace of the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, Buhari said:

“I know the elections, if they are to be free and fair, if it is a question of numbers, if it is a question of allowing people to make their choice, then I think the people of Kano are in my pocket.”

Buhari made history at the last elections by becoming the first opposition candidate in Nigerian history to defeat a sitting President.

He won nearly 90 percent of the vote in Kano state, where victory is vital for securing an overall majority countrywide.

Buhari was joined on Wednesday by Governor Umar Ganduje, who is also expected to seek a second term of office, as they opened and inaugurated a series of projects.
