The National leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has begun distributing bags of rice and other foodstuffs to Kano residents.
People were handed ‘Jagaban’ bags of rice, as seen in a video that surfaced on social media.
Nigerian politicians are notorious for giving handouts, popularised as ‘stomach infrastructure’ by ex-Governor Ayo Fayose, to would-be voters before and during an election period.
An Instagram username @mansurah_isah of Today’s Life Foundation uploaded pictures of the event with a caption appreciating Mr Tinubu’s foundation for the food items.
Recall that the former Lagos state governor was in the news in March for donating to Katsina (President Muhammadu Buhari’s hometown) market fire victims.
