A podium at the Sani Abacha Stadium where dignitaries were seated during the inauguration of the new Kano State governor, Abba Kabir, has collapsed.

PREMIUM TIMES witnessed the podium collapsing shortly after Mr Kabir was sworn in and delivered an inauguration speech.

He was about to leave the podium to the VIP seats in the stadium when the incident happened.

The Kwankwasiyya followers, as the NNPP supporters are also called, consider the emirs as being sympathetic to the All Progressives Congress party.
