Northern governors are in a late hour intervention into the alleged face-off between Abdullahi Ganduje, Governor of Kano State, and Muhammadu Sanusi, Emir of Kano.
NEWSPAD reports that the Northern Governors were the ones that intervened in the previous crisis.
It was not made clear to our correspondent if Aliko Dangote, Africa’s richest man, is also intervening in the crisis.
When interrogated, Kashim Shettima, Governor of Borno State, said efforts were ongoing to resolve the crisis.
Shettima hinted that northern governors are making background moves to ensure that the rift between the governor and monarch is settled.
He said: “And then, 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.
“God willing the governor and the emir will come back together as one”.
