Kano State Governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has reportedly asked Emir Muhammad Sanusi II to tender a public apology to him and people of Kano State for the ongoing reconciliation moves to be successful.
According to Ganduje, Emir Sanusi has to plead for forgiveness for dragging the Emirate Council into politics for the ongoing reconciliation moves to yield the desired result.
The governor was responding to an article, ‘Letter to Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje,’ written by one Jibrin Ibrahim in respect of the face-off between the duo.
He said in a 45-paragraph response that, “Emir Sanusi has the moral burden to withdraw all court cases he’s personally sponsoring against Kano State Government as part of reconciliation conditions.”
The notice, written by the immediate-past Kano State Commissioner for Information, Mallam Muhammed Garba, on behalf of the state governor, read, “It is very important to state that for the reconciliation to yield the desired result, Emir Sanusi has the moral burden to publicly apologise to Governor Ganduje and the entire people of Kano State for dragging the revered Kano Emirate into the murky water of politics.”
Ganduje also asked the monarch to extend a hand of fellowship to the emirs of Karaye, Rano, Gaya and Bichi and demonstrate his readiness to assume his position as the Chairman of Kano State Council of Emirs.
