Kano State Governor, Ganduje and Emir Sanusi reconcile after Aliko Dangote’s intervention


The governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, and the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, have reconciled, following a peace meeting held on Friday night in Abuja.

This was following a reconciliatory meeting initiated by Alhaji Aliko Dangote and the Chairman of Nigeria’s Governors’ Forum, Dr Kayode Fayemi.


The intervention came, 24 hours to the expiration of a query issued to the emir by the state government, seeking answer on alleged misappropriation of the emirate’s finances amounting to N3.4bn.

Crisis started between them due to the emir’s alleged support for the opposition PDP candidate, Abba Yusuf, in the last general election.

In order to cut down the emir’s influence, the governor went ahead to creat four rival emirates and appointed emirs in each.

Things got more tense after Gov. Ganduje initiated moves to suspend the Emir, based on the recommendation of a panel set up to investigate the emirate’s finances.
