Kano wedding shows insensitivity of President Buhari, APC leaders – Bakare
General Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare has blasted the President Muhammad Buhari and other political leaders who were present at the wedding ceremony of the children of the Oyo and Kano state governors.
The wedding of Idris Ajimobi and Fatima Ganduje, children of Abiola Ajimobi, and Ibrahim Ganduje, governors of Oyo and Kano states, respectively, took place in Kano over the weekend.
According to Bakare, with the abduction of over 100 girls from Dapchi by Boko Haram, the huge celebration, opulent in nature stands as a testament to the insensitivity of President Muhammad Buhari and the leaders of the All Progressives Congress.
“Forgive my ill-mannerism, but I could not comprehend why a governor will celebrate the wedding of his daughter, and another governor of his son, on the front pages of newspapers, flashing it before our eyes, when other peoples’ daughters are in captivity,” Bakare said.
“If any of them had lost a daughter in that captivity, would they celebrate that way? I know the Bible says rejoice with them that rejoice, but I do not know what the president of Nigeria was doing there.
“And somebody came to say, let me explain to you, it is Islamic tradition, before this time, about January, they had agreed, that he (Buhari) will be the one to give the bride away and (Bola) Tinubu will be the one to pay the dowry, and present the son, and they agreed long before now.
“I looked at him and said the president of Nigeria wanted to come to my daughter’s wedding, and I said to him, sir, don’t come. That is beneath your office. Face the work of the state and keep serving.
“And 22 governors showed up to mark register, when 110 daughters of citizens of your nation were captured by Boko Haram that you said you have already technically defeated?
“It just shows how insensitive our leaders are. We have gotten to a stage that our president has become a king and a monarch. That his son who rode his pleasurable bike that almost claimed his life, will be returning from an overseas trip, where he had received special healthcare that Nigerians cannot afford, that it took a whole minister of state to go and welcome him, because he has no job.”
