The APC presidential campaign train landed in Jigawa State Saturday and received a rousing welcome from thousands of supporters at the airport. He was heavily rounded up by security agents as he walked out of the airport.
The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC Bola Ahmed Tinubu and other prominent members of the APC rode on a double-decker bus to the venue of campaign rally, where thousands of people were awaiting his arrival.
The bus spent several hours on the road due to traffic caused by the mammoth crowd present at the campaign rally.
The crowd of supporters blocked Tinubu’s way at the stadium. It took security agents several minutes to clear the way for him.
The energetic supporters went agog upon sighting Tinubu at the venue. Tinubu and other APC leaders climbed the stage and waved at the crowd.
At the venue, the governorship candidate of the Labour Party in the state, Comrade Abdullahi Tsoho, and 20 candidates for the house of assembly dumped the Labour Party for the APC.
