Kano receives Jonathan today



Bashir Mohammed

Arrangements have been concluded by the Kano state government to receive President Goodluck Jonathan who is on a visit to Kano today.

The spokesman of the caretaker committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Musa Iliyasu Kwankwaso, who disclosed this, said during the visit, the president would formally welcome the immediate past governor of Kano state, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, into the mainstream of the PDP after his defection from the All Peoples Congress (APC).

Security at the venue of the rally, our correspondent gathered, would be watertight as all the routes leading to the venue would also be cordoned off by uniformed and plain-cloth security operatives.

The spokesman, however, called on the people of Kano to extend a hand of hospitality to the President throughout the visit and to avoid anything capable of smearing their good reputation.
