Most of the hawkers, who trooped to the Sani Abacha Stadium at Kofar Mata in Kano metropolis, venue of the event, were able to make huge sales due to high demand of the commodity from the delegates.
One of the hawkers, Musa Bala, told the News Agency of Nigeria that he made more than N45,000 from the sale of the caps during the event.
“I came to the venue with 65 caps and I was able to sell all of them hours before the end of the programme,’’ he said.
Another hawker, Alhasan Lawan, who claimed to have come to the venue around 2:30 p.m., said he sold no fewer than 50 caps, and at exorbitant prices.
