The Governor’s convoy was said to be making its way to Kano from Zamfara State, where a mass defection rally was held on the same day.

Ganduje reportedly joined the convoy of his Jigawa State Counterpart, Abubakar Badaru, after the mega rally in Gusau.

A government house official said, “You know because the place was rowdy after the event which had many state governors in attendance, His Excellency, Gov Ganduje, joined his friend, Governor Badaru, and they both arrived in Kano hours before the Kano convoy arrived.”
