A Presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, was embarrassed today, Friday in Kaduna by Muslim worshipers at the Jum’at (Friday) prayer, when they shouted at him: ‘sai Buhari’ meaning it is Buhari (we want).
The 61-year-old former Kano state governor, who recently defected to the PDP, walked into the waiting hands of hostile crowd who jeered at him shouting “Sai Buhari,” an indication of his rejection.
The twitter video of the incident is succinctly captured by the twitter handle of APC United Kingdom.
He was similarly humiliated at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja earlier in the week, where passengers and onlookers booed, shouting “Sai Baba.”
Kwankwaso was two times Governor of Kano State from 1999–2003 and 2011–2015 and he was the first governor of Kano State in the fourth republic who was elected under the platform of PDP.
He lost re-election bid in 2003 to Ibrahim Shekarau and was in July same year appointed Defense Minister by the then President Olusegun Obasanjo.
In 2015, Kwankwaso unsuccessfully contested the presidential primaries nomination under the then opposition All Progressive Congress (APC), but lost to Muhammad Buhari.
He then swapped to contest the senatorial seat for Kano Central Senatorial District. He recently defected again to PDP, causing some ripples in APC.
