The Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has expressed readiness to close ranks and reconcile with his predecessor, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.
Ganduje said both of them are working towards a reconciliation and putting the past behind them, noting that the issues that caused a disagreement between them are normal in politics.
The Governor who made the submission during a recent interview with Radio France blamed some political opportunists as responsible for promoting the feud between the two leaders.
He said: “You know there are people who are used to fuelling issues. So, we are working on them towards seeing that we beat their actions and reconcile.”
“This kind of issues are normal in politics and God willing it will come to pass. Everyone knows that reconciliation is always the best. We hope God will help those who pledge to reconcile us to succeed.
“From our part, we are ever ready to come forward and reconcile. It’s not like we are refusing. There are people from both parties who are driving this issue but like I said, everything that sense is applied into, I think we will get over it.”
