Kano, a Northwestern state, is essential regarding the number of voters and voter turnout.
In his reaction on Twitter, Obagoriola Olumuyiwa, @Obasteve91, linked the rally's cancellation to the current scarcity of Naira notes.
"There is no cash for mobilization."
Yahaya MM, @StudentYahaya, said:
"No cash for mobilisation, thanks to Emifiele."

Momopee, @Momopee2, said:
"Is there another date? Or it's cancelled completely?"
Jappoy, @Jappoyoflondon, said:
"They have done Kano before but they planned to do it twice, I guess seeing Atiku's poor outing, they don't need to drag it much. They may go to Katsina or one northwest state twice to seal the 12m vote from there."
