February 12, 2024
Baring last minute changes, the First Lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, will visit Kano State today, Monday, February 12, 2024.
Mrs Tinubu is expected to inaugurate the Faculty of Law Building named after her at the Maryam Abacha University, Kano.
Addressing journalists in Kano, Sanusi Bature, Director General of Media and Publicity to Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, said adequate security arrangements had been put in place to ensure hitch-free activities during the visit.
Bature said the state government, alongside the police, had drafted a compressive security network on how to provide the required security.
He noted that the state government and security agencies were working round the clock to provide a peaceful atmosphere for the visitors.
The government, therefore, appealed to residents to conduct themselves peacefully and come out en masse to receive the first lady.
The Kano State Police Commissioner, Hussaini Gumel, has also assured the First Lady, her team and residents of adequate security.
“We have mobilised sufficient armed personnel to provide security cover for our first lady before, during, and after the visit.
“We will not tolerate any act capable of bringing confusion before, during, and after the visit,” Gumel said.
