Former Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State has mocked his successor, Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje and his Oyo State counterpart, Governor Abiola Ajimobi over the grand wedding of their children, Fatima Ganduje and Idris Ajimobi.
The senator referred to the newly wedded couple as ‘zawarawa’, which implies ‘the couple are non-virtuous’ in Hausa language… “Only few people are happy with the marriage of a single zawarawa because they are just one.”
“We heard the eastern, the western, the southern and the northern entry points to Kano are all shut for the marriage of a single ‘zawarawa’ couple. This shows a sharp departure from the Kwankwasiyya ideology in Kano State.”
“Kano was at a standstill because of this marriage. We also heard a lot of people from other places that are less busy have abandoned their duties to attend the wedding. I also heard this event involving a single couple has made lot of people doing their legitimate businesses remain indoors.”
“All these show difference between honesty and dishonesty, between light and darkness, between mass wedding of a thousand couple and that of a single couple.”
