Former Kano State Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso has described Idris Ajimobi and Fateema Ganduje as ‘zawarawa’ meaning non-virtuous couple. Governor Ganduje over the weekend gave the hand of his daughter, Fateema, in marriage to Idris, the only son of Oyo State governor, Abiola Ajimobi.
The elaborate three-day wedding ceremonies had in attendance, President Buhari, APC National leader, BolaTinubu, 22 State governors, amongst others.
Addressing his 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.
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 difference between honesty and dishonesty, between light and darkness, between mass wedding of a thousand couple and that of a single couple.
