2019: Kano People Are In My Pocket - Buhari Boasts by Ebullience(m): 10:40pm On Dec 06
I think the people of Kano are in my pocket – Buhari

Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday made his first trip as Nigerian president to a key state, in the latest sign of his return to the national stage after months of illness and treatment abroad.

The 74-year-old’s two-day visit to Kano, northern Nigeria’s largest city and capital of one its most populous states, will also be interpreted as an indication he is seeking a second term of office at elections in early 2019.


The ageing head of state has hardly been seen outside his residence in Abuja since returning in August from months of treatment in London for an undisclosed ailment.


But last month, he toured three southeastern states, which analysts saw as a test of how well he fared on the stump, with possibly months of arduous campaigning ahead.

Speaking at the palace of the emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, Buhari gave little away about whether he planned to seek a second, four-year term.


But he 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.

– More time –

Nigeria’s next president is expected to be from the north because of an unwritten rule to “rotate” power between the Muslim-majority north and predominantly Christian south.

Former vice-president Atiku Abubakar has announced his intention to stand and left Buhari’s ruling All Progressives Party to rejoin the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party.

Atiku is from Adamawa state in the northeast, while Buhari is from Daura, in the northern state of Katsina.

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 infrastructure projects.

Kano — the main commercial hub in northern Nigeria — has not escaped violence from Boko Haram, the armed Islamist group that has waged a deadly insurgency since 2009.

In November 2014, at least 120 people were killed in a suicide bomb and gun attack at the Grand Mosque in Kano, which is next to the emir’s palace.

Buhari said the whole country suffered if there was instability in the north.

“This is why the government’s priority is to make sure that Boko Haram is defeated,” he said. “It is not only for the northeast, it is for the rest of Nigeria.”

But he called for time in his signature fight against corruption, which has yet to produce any high-profile convictions, despite a string of well-publicised arrests.

“People should be patient and not expect things to change overnight,” he said.

More than 1,100 corruption cases are currently before the courts and observers said it was unlikely substantial inroads would be made before the next election.

In other words he is implying that even if he poos on Kano people and unleashes more suffering on them,they would still vote for him because they are barely able to use their brains?
I am not saying that's what he said,but that's the inference of his statement.
In saner climes,this statement of Buhari alone would be the subject of much anger,with the presidency scrambling all manner of topmost government officials to apologize to Kano people and try to spin the statement.
But here Buhari a rse licking is now a thing of joy for some,so they would swallow the insults with pride and great elation!

that means you hate the party.
Because if you hate anybody in the party, you will also hate the party.
I hate APC because of some people and I love APC because of buhari.

I hope you are OK with this little sense?

Definitely not.
The All Poverty Congress, APC led by barawo bubu and his 40 cabal thieves are definitely not worth loving.
They are only worthy of being stoned by reasonable citizens.
Unfortunately we have 200 million mumus instead of reasonable citizens. embarassed undecided

This man keeps making unguided statements. How can a sitting President boast that his people are in his pocket? Another campaign point for Atiku.

Mr President you visited Anambra, crowd came out to see the man sharing hunger, BMC translated this as election victory for APC.

But what happened? APC recorded their worst outing in Anambra since the time of AC. Running for an election without winning a single LGA.

If Atiku visits, a larger crowd will welcome, though 45% will end up voting him. Which to Atiku will be a landslide.

Finally, Atiku is not banking on NW to win. He was already projected to win NE and NC.

Go Atiku Go!

Let us do some political arithmetic and permutations before some people will hallucinate and masturbate on this thread.

Kano gave APC 1.9 MILLION VOTES IN 2015

PMB won the election with 2.5 million votes. PMB 15 million, GEJ 12.5 MILLION votes

There was no contender to share the votes in the north with PMB. Now there is one.

If you know politics, you will know that you can never have 1.9million votes from Kano again with a fellow northern contender.

South west, south East, South South, and middle belt will make a lot of Difference.

If PMB understands politics, the people he should be romancing are his weak areas which are South west, south East, South South. the northern votes are divided already, even if PDP is presenting a rat.

I support Buhari for 2nd term but

Which kin talk be this. I hope its just the media's interpretation of what he said. Because the statement is akin to Hillary Clinton's statements where she took her voters for granted, and they surprised her.
