A statement by Mr Abba Anwar, the Chief Press Secretary to Gov. Ganduje and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano today said, the two leaders (Ganduje and Sanusi) met, they congratulated each other for the successful completion of the Ramadan Fast and the Eid-el-Fitr celebration.
“Both leaders spoke and urged all Muslims to continue with the good teachings and spirit of the Fasting period of the Month of Ramadan.
“Emir Sanusi seized the opportunity to congratulate Gov. Ganduje for the victory in his second term in office. He also wished the governor successful tenure in office.”
In reaction, some residents, who spoke with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Saturday in Kano, expressed satisfaction and joy.
According to some of them, the reconciliation is in the best interest of peace in the state and the nation.
Dr Abba Ahmed, a retired civil servant in the state, said the reconciliation provided much relief to many residents.
“I have been tensed since the issue started, especially that I live close to the Emirate where people have developed a high sentiment over the situation.”
He explained that the situation was one of the few bad things that could happen to Kano, thus commended Dangote’s committee for the action.
Malam Nura Muhammad, also a civil servant, told NAN that the reconciliation was timely as it would save the whole of Northern Nigeria a lot of trouble.
“Kano has indeed become a centre for democracy not only in the North but in the whole country and many states look up to it for new political strategies.
“It’s also a hub for traditional influence where the Emirate plays a vital role in global affairs, while the Emir himself has attracted global attention,” he said.
According to Malam Muhammad Ahmad, a businessman, the reconciliation has saved Kano from shame because of so many uncertainties that could arise if the whole process had continued.
He urged residents to keep praying for more peace in the state and the country at large and avoid developing sentiments and enmities on political issues.
Meanwhile Naija News reports that Sanusi has replied the query issued to him by Gov. Ganduje-led government on Thursday over alleged misappropriation of N3.4billion by the Emirate Council.
