Kwankwaso saved my life-Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari said Allah once used Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, PhD, FNSE, the NNPP presidential candidate, to save his life.
He said, “The armoured vehicle Kwankwaso gave me as a gift helped me survive a bomb attack in Kaduna in 2014″
He said this in a documentary titled ‘Essential Muhammadu Buhari’, which aired on Sunday.
In July 2014, Buhari’s convoy was affected after multiple blasts rocked the Kawo area of Kaduna state.
Buhari, who was contesting the presidency at the time, had later said he was the target of the bomb attack, which resulted in the death of scores of people.
Reflecting on the incident in the documentary, Buhari said Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso, who was governor of Kano at the time, gifted him the Armoured (Bulletproof) vehicle he was travelling in when the blast occurred.
“I think Kwankwaso was being generous. He gave me an armored Land Rover vehicle,” Buhari said.
“He said I should use it because he believed the competition I was going on involved people who would like to eliminate me.”
“I was going to Kano from Kaduna in that jeep and a vehicle wanted to overtake us but my escort stopped them and they detonated the bomb.
“When I looked, I saw pieces of human beings. None of us in the vehicle were injured. But somehow, when we came out of the car, I saw blood on me because of the number of people killed outside by the bomb.
