One of the traders, Kabir Danladi told NNN that he exhausted his stock of water, soft drinks and snacks by 11am and had to send for more.

“I have sold snacks, water and drinks of over 30,000 naira already. I have sent my boys to purchase more as the demand is very high”.

On her part, Mrs Juliet Musa, a food vendor said, ” I made sales of food about four times more than what I used to. By 12 noon I had to call my people to help me with the cooking. I wish Baba Buhari success and hopes that he returns as the next President”.
