Friends and political associates of former Vice President Namadi Sambo and his wife, Amina, defied the heavy rain that fell on Friday in Kaduna and trooped to the Kaduna International Airport to receive him at the end of his tenure in Abuja.
The crowd, made up mostly of chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Kaduna State, was led by the former governor of Kaduna State, Alh. Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, the PDP’s state Chairman, Chief Abubakar Gaiya Haruna and the Speaker of Kaduna State House of Assembly, Honourable Shehu Tahir.
The former vice president arrived the airport at exactly 6:30pm in a presidential plane.
The convoy of over 200 vehicles drove with Sambo and his wife through Kaduna town to his house at Camp Road where a reception was organized to welcome them.
Speakers at the reception commended the former vice president for his meritorious service to the nation and wished him well in his future endeavours.
Responding, Sambo thanked all for the show of love and solidarity demonstrated for him.
