Spokesperson of former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode, Jude Ndukwe, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari not to be deceived by the crowd that welcomed him in Kano.
The president on Wednesday started a two-day official visit to Kano state.
In a post on his Facebook page, Ndukwe called on the All Progressives Congress (APC) not to use the crowd as a yardstick to measure the president’s popularity ahead of the 2019 elections.
He said: “Buhari and APC should stop getting unnecessarily excited about the “crowd” that welcomed him in Kano yesterday and using it as a yardstick to measure his popularity at the 2019 elections.
“They embarked on similar premature excitement shortly before the Anambra election and came a distant second.
“Some people in that crowd merely came to have a glimpse of the man who has so much and so heartlessly impoverished them.”
It was a like a carnival today in Kano as the city stood still for its Political Leader, President @MBuhari, as he commissions mulitple multibillion naira projects in Kano. #PMBInKano #AikiDaiBaba 😃😃🕺 pic.twitter.com/1Dh3NxhDRt
