There were loud chants of ‘Sai Buhari’ as former Kano governor, senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, attended a Mosque in Kaduna state earlier today for Juma’a prayers. The lawmaker who recently defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was mobbed by some supporters after prayers.
In multiple trending videos posted online, some of his supporters can be heard hailing him, while others shouted ‘Sai Buhari’ in order to show their displeasure with him and support for president Muhammadu Buhari.
Senator Kwankwaso acknowledged their cheers before leaving the vicinity.
This is the second time this is happening as the lawmaker was similarly humiliated at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, where passengers and onlookers booed, shouting “Sai Buhari’’.
In 2015, Kwankwaso unsuccessfully contested the presidential primaries nomination under the opposition All Progressive Congress, but lost to Muhammad Buhari.
He then swap to contest the senatorial seat for Kano Central Senatorial District.
He recently defected again to PDP, causing some ripples in APC, but recent public reactions speak of his acceptability level.
