Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) says it is intensifying monitoring and surveillance to curtail excesses by petroleum marketers ahead of President Muhammadu Buhari's visit to Kano.

He was received at Malam Aminu Kano International Airport by Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje, members of the State Executive Council, Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, traditional rulers as well as politicians, among others.

A mammoth crowd was also at the airport and along the major streets in the metropolis, giving the president a rousing welcome.


Buhari is expected to inaugurate some multi-billion naira projects including two general hospitals, underpass and a 21.1 kilometer dual road.

The President also visited the palace of the Emir of Kano where he had nice words about the people of the state and their support for him.

"I am pleased with this visit and I have learnt a bit more about the conditions of the prisons and inmates", Garba Shehu, senior special assitant on media and publicity, said in a statement. He boasted that if an election was to be held today he would have no problem winning.
