Borno Governor, Kashim Shettima, has said that Nigerian Governors are working underground to resolve the rift between Kano State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje and Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II.
In a chat with news men today, Friday in Kaduna, Governor Shettima said that Northern Governors secretly met some time ago to quell the tension over Kano Emirate, adding “God willing the Governor and the Emir will come back together as one.”
Describing the creation of four additional Emirates in Kano State to downsize the influence of Emir Sanusi as saddening, the Borno State Governro, said that all Governors have one unwritten policy: “we don’t openly interfere with the issues of one another. We only play background roles to lobby and appeal.
“I cannot dictate to Ganduje how he should run Kano but we can work underground as bridge builders. God willing the Governor and the Emir will come back together as one.”
