Former military president Abdussalami Alhaji Abubakar is leading a reconciliation committee to resolve the lingering tussle between Kano state governor Abdullahi Ganduje and Emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi II.
KANO FOCUS reports that the Wazirin Fika, Adamu Fika stated on Sunday that the committee is working with the support of the federal government.
Mr. Fika noted that the crisis “has since degenerated into serious tension within the State, with likely consequences on peace and security with the possibility of spilling into neighbouring states.”
He said the committee has since contacted Mr Ganduje and Mr Sanusi.
“They have each confirmed to hold back from taking any further actions until the committee has fully undertaken and finalised this exercise of reconciliation and resolution.
“Similarly, they each has respectively undertaken to call on all their supporters and sympathisers including social media operators to refrain from making statements, declarations, songs, articles, blogs and all actions inimical to the spirit and process of good governance, order and reconciliation.
“We call on everyone to hearken to the call of their principals.”
Members of the committee include chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum, Kayode Fayemi and Aminu Bello Masari, Katsina state governor.
Other members of the Committee include Adamu Fika, Wazirin Fika, Muhammadu Inuwa Wushishi, Abdullahi Ibrahim, and Dalhatu Sarki Tafida.
Others are Umaru Mutallab, Ibrahim Gambari, and Sharif Ibrahim Saleh.
