Babaji told journalists shortly after his visit to the polling unit of Governor Nasir El-Rufai, Unit 024 Marnona Ungwar Sarki, Kaduna, that even the troubled Birnin-Gwari known to be a hot spot was calm.

“I can tell you that Kaduna is calm, people should go out and vote. Even in Birnin Gwari, there is no problem,” he said.

This was just as the officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission visited the governor’s polling unit a few minutes before the governor arrived to join the queue to vote.
