Alhaji Rabiu Kwankwaso , the 61-year-old former Kano state governor, who recently defected to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has again been publicly humiliated by members of the public.
At the close of Jumat service in Kaduna on Friday, the politician seeking presidential ticket of PDP, walked into the waiting hands of hostile crowd who chanted “Sai Buhari’’.
As he waved, the jeering crowd surged 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.

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 People’s Democratic Party (Nigeria).
Kwankwaso lost re-election bid in 2003 to Ibrahim Shekarau and was in July same year appointed Defense Minister by President Olusegun Obasanjo.
In 2015, Kwankwaso unsuccessfully contested the presidential primaries nomination under the opposition All Progressive Congress, but lost to Muhammad Buhari.
He then swap to contest the senatorial seat for Kano Central Senatorial District.
He recently defected again to PDP, causing some ripples in APC, but recent public reactions speak of his acceptability level.
