Mrs. Jonathan reportedly described the region as an enclave of beggars and unwanted children.
But Mrs. Buhari said the description coming from someone, who ironically is campaigning for votes from the region, smacks of a hidden agenda, adding that the people of the North should, therefore, reject the Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate.
“With General Buhari in power, the spate of kidnapping and reckless assassination of innocent people will be history in Nigeria. With General Buhari in power, the nation’s depressing economy will be rebounded in line with the expectation of the citizens and world best practices”, she said.
Mrs. Buhari said she was in Kano to canvass the support of women knowing their role as important pillars in winning election the world over, saying it would be a disaster for any politician to ignore the vital role of women.
She further stressed the need for women to exhibit courage and a fighting spirit, just as she urged them to make themselves available as foot soldiers during the election.
Mrs. Buhari advocated for more freedom for women in the North so that they would be able to engage themselves in productive ventures like their counterparts in the Southern part of the country.
According to Mrs. Buhari, Gov. Kwankwaso’s administration took children out of the streets to the classrooms.
