Ex-gov. Kwankwaso reacts to wedding photo of Governor Ajimobi’s son and Ganduje’s daughter

A Photo of Governor Ajimobi’s son, Idris wrapping his hands around the breast of his wife, Fatima Ganduje has generated reactions from different angles and former Kano state Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso has described the couple as ‘zawarawa’.

Fatima and Idris, the couple, who are children of Governors Abdullahi Ganduje and Abiola Ajimobi, respectively trended online over what many referred to as ‘inappropriate’.

The elaborate three-day wedding ceremonies had in attendance, President Buhari, APC National leader, BolaTinubu, 22 State governors, among many others.

Addressing supporters in Kaduna on Saturday, 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 said 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 the difference between honesty and dishonesty, between light and darkness, between mass wedding of a thousand couple and that of a single couple,” he added.
