Kano State House of Assembly members yesterday paid a solidarity visit to Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, to express loyalty.
The visit, led by the Speaker, Kabiru Rurum, surprised Ganduje.
The lawmakers wore different attires and caps, a departure from the dominant red cap, an identity of the Kwankwasiyya movement.
Our reporter, who was at the Government House when they visited, observed that they dumped the red cap in solidarity with the Gandujiyya Akida belief.
Also, the 44 local government chairmen dumped the red cap in support of the Gandujiyya Akida.
Most of the Kwankwasiyya group members in solidarity dumped the red cap to identify with Gandujiyya Akida.
A lawmaker, who preferred anonymity, said: “As you can see, the Speaker and members came here for a solidarity visit and to reassure the governor that we are behind him.
“We have dumped the red cap and joined the Gandujiyya Akida Movement. We promise to ensure its success.”
Governor Ganduje had accused Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of encouraging and promoting political thuggery.
The governor, who inspected work at Zango-Bale Road in Dakata quarters, said his administration did not encourage use of weapons whenever they embarked on trips, unlike his predecessor.
He said: “Our administration is determined to ensure that the dividends of democracy are delivered to the people. We are ready to work for it without fear or favour.”
