A photo from the past has been circulating on social media, showing Umar Ganduje, the former governor of Kano, giving a ride to Rabiu Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People Party (NNPP) in the 2023 general elections, on a motorcycle.
The photo has sparked reactions from Nigerians, as Ganduje and Kwankwaso have had a strained relationship in recent years.
It serves as a reminder not to let politics destroy valuable relationships.
The photo was shared by George Udom on Facebook, who captioned it, “Let us not allow politics to destroy our hard earned relationships. This is Ganduje giving a ride to Kwankwaso on a Vespa in 1981.”

Kwankwaso problem with Ganduje started when he left APC and Ganduje his mate in politics refused to.Ganduje resilience showed us that he’s not a. Second class citizen to kwankwaso as it is presumed which was clearly visible in the last kano governorship election. Despite the widespread and red cap movement of kwankwaso, it was a tough race for both parties.”
