Posters of the national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Sunday, flooded major parts of Kano State, exactly a day after the euphoria of democracy day celebrations.
The posters which carried Tinubu’s bold picture and name surfaced on Sunday and were strategically posted on public infrastructures like traffic kiosks, bridges, perimeter fences along BUK road, Murtala Muhammad way, Kofar Nasarawa close to Radio Kano and on Zoo road.
The posters carried inscriptions like “Happy Democracy Day” and “Tinubu Advocates Group.”
Solacebase recalls that the people loyal to the former Lagos State governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu distributed branded bags of rice and other food items to Kano residents, in April 2021.
Also in several photos and videos making the rounds, residents were seen with bags of rice with the inscription ‘JAGABA – Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’.
An Instagram username @mansurah_isah of Today’s Life Foundation uploaded pictures of the event with a caption appreciating Tinubu’s foundation for the food items.
The development comes amid claims that Tinubu is nursing presidential ambition ahead of 2023 although he has not publicly confirmed it.
The action further stretches what many believed to be calculated steps taken by the former governor to get the support of the North.
Around December 2020, he met with some Islamic scholars who threw their weight behind his “2023 presidential ambition”.
Similarly, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in March celebrated his 69th birthday in Kano State at the Government House which was the first time the annual Bola Ahmed Tinubu colloquium was held outside Lagos.
The decision had generated various comments but Tinubu insisted that the move was to prove that Nigeria is one.
Solacebase reports that Kano is a major area of a determinant of who becomes the president and even National Assembly principal positions due to its population in political equations.
