Some Northern Governors have waded into the feud between the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi and the Governor of Kano state, Umar Ganduje.
Both leaders are feuding following the latter’s decision to split the Kano Emirate, a decision many view as a sinister move to whittle down the power of the Emir. The former chairman of the Northern Governors Forum, Kashim Shettima, while receiving questions from newsmen earlier today revealed that a lot of effort was being made to reconcile both men.
In his words; “We 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.
The northern governors did play a role sometime back over the same Kano emirate and we are still working underground because I cannot dictate to Ganduje how he should run Kano but we can work underground as bridge builders.”
