Former Vice President of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has told President Buhari not to be deceived by the welcome treat he got during his visit to Kano State.

President Buhari, quoted by his Special Assistant, Garba Shehu, said, “I am overwhelmed with the massive reception I have received and definitely, since this is partisan politics, I think it has sent a clear message to the opposition.

“Even going by the details of the election results in 2003, 2007 and 2011, it was very clear that nobody could even dare to rig my scores from the elections in Kano.

“It has been so consistent and I don’t think I have the vocabulary to express my thanks to the people of Kano.

“I am very grateful to God and the people of Kano for the complete trust you have in me.”

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, through his spokesperson, Paul Ibe, said Nigerians will decide 2019.

Reacting to questions by newsmen on the reception president Buhari got in Kano State, Ibe said, “The only thing I can tell you is that Nigerians will decide 2019.

“Nobody else can decide but Nigerians.”
