The Governor of Kano State, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has demanded a public apology from the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sunusi II if ongoing efforts to reconcile them must move meaning.
The governor wants the Emir to apologize publicly to him and the people of the state for dragging the Emirate Council into politics.
Ganduje made the demand in a rejoinder to an article, ‘Letter to Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje,” written by one Jibrin Ibrahim in respect of the face-off between the duo.
“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 governor said.
Continuing, the governor said: “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, in the rejoinder, also asked the Emir 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.
