Nigerians blast Buhari for attending Ganduje’s daughter’s wedding in Kano and not visiting Benue or Dapchi community

Nigerians have taken to social media, to express their anger over President Muhammadu Buhari’s trip to Kano, to attend the wedding of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s daughter, Hajiya Fatima and her groom, Idris Ajimobi, the son of Gov. Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State.

Buhari is yet to visit Benue State after the string of Fulani herdsmen killings and Dap’chi where several Nigerians have been killed and kidnapped in recent weeks.

Most of them are also not pleased that the president has overlooked some of the tragedies happening around the country, including the recent abduction of school girls in Dapchi, Adamawa state and Boko Haram bombing an Internally Displaced Camp (IDP) in Rann, Borno state.

Buhari, who stood for the groom, gave out the N50,000 dowry to Ahmed Bola Tinubu, who represented the bride at the occasion.

The wedding proceedings were conducted by the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II and supported by the Chief Imam of Kano, Prof. Sani Zaharaddeen.

Governor Ayo Fayose’s Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, lambasted President Buhari for making today’s trip to Kano.

Fayose’s aide, lamented that the nation’s leader was yet to visit hot spots in the country.

Olayinka expressed sadness that despite killings in Benue and other states and the recent abduction of Dapchi girls, Buhari ignored those places for a wedding.

“President Buhari is in Kano for the wedding of Fatima Ganduje, daughter of Kano State Governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and Idris Ajimobi, son of Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi.

“The same President Buhari that refused to visit Dapchi in Yobe State where 110 school girls were abducted by Boko Haram.

“He didn’t visit Benue State where 73 Nigerians killed by Fulani herdsmen were buried in one day”, he said on his twitter handle.
