Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso has mocked the wedding ceremony of Fatima and Idris, the daughter and son of Governors Abdullahi Ganduje and Abiola Ajimobi, respectively.
￼On Saturday, President Muhammadu Buhari, Senate President, Bukola Saraki, governors, the APC national leader, Bola Tinubu, among many others attended the ceremony.
Addressing his supporters in Kaduna at the weekend, Kwankwaso mocked the couple, saying they are ‘zawarawa’.
The term in Hausa language, among others, means that the couple are non-virtuous.
￼“Only few people are happy with the marriage of a single zawarawa because they are just one”, Daily Nigerian quoted him as saying.
“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,” the former governor said.
The lawmaker also lambasted dignitaries who stormed the state for the wedding, saying they 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,” he added.
