Jonathan excited over mammoth crowd in KanoFrom Mustapha Adamu, Kano

President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan yesterday in the ancient city of Kano, could not hide his excitement over the overwhelming crowd that received him with a promise to boost the economic growth of Kano through intervention programmes in education, agriculture, commerce and industry.

Jonathan stated at the rally held at polo ground in kano, that the cornerstone of his campaign in Kano is the basic empowerment of the youths and women in the commercial nerve centre of the North.

According to Jonathan, “I will appreciate all of you for this warm reception; this crowd that has come to receive me because this is a prayer time, so we are hurrying,I will just summarize. Let me use this occasion to appreciate the northern youths for donating N2 million for myself and the Vice-President to buy our nomination forms. The donation was made in Kano and we have to use this opportunity to thank all of you for that.

“Let us use this opportunity to also express our condolences to you for the death of our former Emir, Ado Bayero, and also to congratulate you for successfully crowning the next Emir of this great city and this Emirate. At this occasion, let us remember some of our great sons and daughters that worked very hard to lead this country. One is the great Murtala Muhammad, Malam Aminu Kano and other great leaders that have worked tirelessly.

“When you are in Kano, you remember what people want. Kano is known for education, it is known for agriculture, it is known for commerce and industry; and that is why this present administration will work with you, work with the Governor that is coming, to make sure that we don’t just produce food, but we process the food and export and that is why we are working very hard. You can remember our agricultural programme—that now, we are producing rice and we will soon export rice from Kano.
