A rally and procession was held in Kaduna on Friday to show solidarity to Governor Nasir El-Rufai of the state. Participants were seen carrying placards inscribing support to the governor.
The rally may not be unconnected with the one conducted on Thursday by over a hundred thousand workers drawn from various states of Nigeria, who protested the sacking of 36,000 workers in the state.
The Friday rally received the protection of officers of the police, as against the Thursday rally which was initially banned by the Nigeria Police.
There was no clear identity of the people involved in the rally, but majority of the people who witness the rally procession concluded that participants were youth members of El-Rufai’s political party, All Progressive Party (APC).
