Mixed reactions have continued to trail the wedding of ceremony of the daughter and son of Governors Abdullahi Ganduje and Abiola Ajimobi, with a former governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso, joining the debate.
On Saturday, President Muhammadu Buhari, Senate President, Bukola Saraki, governors and APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu attended the wedding ceremony of daughter of the state’s governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.
In an elaborate ceremony, Mr Ganduje gave the hand of his daughter, Fatima, in marriage to Idris Ajimobi, the son of Oyo State governor, Abiola Ajimobi.
But addressing his supporters in Kaduna on Saturday, Mr Kwankwaso mocked the couple, saying they are ‘zawarawa’, contextually meaning non-virtuous couple.
“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.
“Today, Kano was at a standstill because of this marriage,” the former governor said.
He also suggests that the dignitaries who left their workplaces to attend the wedding are “less busy”.
“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,” the former governor added.
