“Gaya, as you know is the home of APC. No political party can match our strength and our cloud. We are determined to take the bull by the horn in maintaining our dominance. Gawuna is our candidate and is going to be the next governor of Kano State.
“We have made all the necessary preparations, the colorful event where our candidate would receive his flag from the president, who would be here in Kano for the purpose of giving him the flag.”
