Speaking further on security, Kwankwaso said that if the government was doing the right thing, many people will put down their arms, adding that for those who do not want to do that, it is the responsibility of the government to ensure peace as people go about their legitimate business not minding religion, ethnicity.

In Kano, when I was in government, we constructed roads and of course gates leading into the city and the idea was to put cameras, scanners so that anybody going into our city should be checked.
