While HE Peter Obi was touring Northern states while soliciting for the PDP stakeholders’ support in the early days of his quest to become president, Kano State delegates were very exceptional in reception and exhibiting evident genuine acceptance.
The PDP chairman of the state addressed Peter Obi as if the former governor of Anambra State was already the president. It was so touching the way the man told the then aspirant under PDP to note that almost every industry in Kano was comatose and begged him to revive the over 40 industries that will assist in moving the country from Consumption to Production when he becomes president. I felt the sincerity and knew that Kano delegates, from their enthusiastic responses, understood exactly what PO was bringing on board. The turnout in Kano yesterday only reaffirmed what I witnessed that first time.
