At the Awala Hotel gate, several groups came in solidarity, carrying banners and placards with inscriptions like, “Zailani we welcome you to Bauchi State”. “Zailani Jagoran Siyasar Arewa” ‘Sai Zailani” “OYOYO ZAILANI” and several others.
He was escorted in a long convoy of many cars, otorcycles, and horses from the Awala gate to Kofar Wase ta gabas 1 where he commissioned a primary school facilitated by Hon Jamilu Umaru Dahiru (Jamilu Barade) representing Bauchi Central Constituency and later to his residence.
Zailani after appreciating the grand reception from well wishers and supporters who thronged his convoy, later joined his colleagues for a dinner at the Government House with Governor Bala Muhammed Kauran Bauchi
It would be recalled that Zailani is in Bauchi for a general meeting of The Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures of Nigeria.
