According to reports, the stadium is filled to capacity as many slept on the streets, in spite of the cold weather, waiting for the arrival of Nigeria’s number one citizen.

Vehicle owners, it was learned, parked five to ten kilometres away to trek to the campaign ground due to congestion as a result of massive human and vehicular movement.

Buhari is expected to wind up his campaign this Thursday in Katsina from where he will proceed to Daura to cast his vote in Saturday’s presidential election in which he is a candidate.

There are also reports of massive hold up on roads leading to the state capital through Jibia, Batsari, Kaita, Daura, Mani, Dutsinma and Kankia, as APC supporters come in from across the 34 local government areas in the state.

So far, there has been no report of any security breach, as police, military and para military personnel keep vigil in strategic locations.
