Kwankwaso Snubs President Jonathan At Abuja Event

Kano State Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso shunned President Goodluck Jonathan on Friday in Abuja, during an award/gala night organised by the National Council of Women Societies in collaboration with the Office of the First Lady.

Kwankwaso, who was one of the five northern governors that had met with political leaders on the crisis in Nigeria, played a hide-and-seek with President Jonathan, VP Namadi Sambo and PDP Chairman, Bamanga Tukur, at the public event.

He also refused to join other governors, who were on the same table with him when they all moved to greet President Jonathan and VP Sambo and their table.

Tukur and the Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, Godswill Akpabio, were on the table beside that of the President.

The governors, who went to pay homage included Olusegun Mimiko (Ondo); Peter Obi (Anambra); Adams Oshiomhole (Edo); Theodore Orji (Abia); Jonah Jang (Plateau); and Idris Wada (Kogi).

Only Kwankwaso and his deputy, Abdullahi Ganduje, remained on their seats.

The governor also refused to recognise the presence of the President during the presentation of awards to the governors. 

All the governors who received awards, on stepping down from the podium, moved to the President for a handshake before returning to their seats. 

But immediately Kwankwaso collected his award, he looked the other way, stepped down from the podium and returned to his seat.

You may wish to know that Kwankwaso and 4 other governors are not happy with the way Jonathan's men are treating Governor Rotimi Amaechi who defeated the Presidency's candidate at the NGF election.
