Shekarau, Ganduje reunite at Deputy Governor’s daughter’s wedding



It was a memorable meeting of Northern political giants at the wedding ceremony of the daughter of deputy Governor of Kano State, Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna.


Besides, the wedding fathia reunited Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and Senator representing Kano Central, Mal. Ibrahim Shekarau who met for the first time since after the crisis that rocked the state Congress of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano.
