Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, assured the people of Kano State on Sunday of free and fair elections during the 2023 general election.
The governor stated this while addressing the All Progressive Congress (APC) supporters who organized a one-million-man match in support of the presidential candidate of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
According to the governor, the APC and other parties in the state are on board with the idea of free and fair campaigns and elections.
Speaking with a local media house at the event, the governor, who is visibly happy with the attendance, said the march has surpassed one million and is heading to five million.
“By looking at my face, you will know I am happy; my deputy, who is the gubernatorial candidate, is happy; even the people of Kano are happy.”
“If you see the mammoth crowd for over one hour now, we have been standing here, we have been taking salutes, we have been directing them to the main venue of the event for over one hour now, and they are still passing; it’s more than one million marchers, and we are heading to five million marchers,” Ganduje said.
Youth, women, and persons with disabilities from the 44 local government areas of the state gathered in the state metropolis to support the APC presidential candidate.
The one-million-man match began from the Emir’s palace, and the Kano State governor received thousands of supporters at the Government House Roundabout. The match continued from there and ended at the racecourse in Nasarawa Local Government.
