The Governor of Kano State, Abba Kabir Yusuf, has paid a visit to the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribado at the Office of the National Security Adviser in Abuja

The meeting was held on the 30th of May, 2024.

The meeting, which lasted for more than an hour, was prompted by the recent happenings in Kano State following the dissolution of five emirates by the Kano State House of Assembly through the repeal of the state emirate law, and the subsequent restoration of Emir Muhammad Sanusi II by the Governor.

In a statement issued by the Governor’s spokesperson Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, it was noted that the two political leaders deliberated on various matters relating to state/national development and the peaceful coexistence of the nation during their discussions in Abuja.

It is significant to mention that the NSA had been accused of involvement in the Kano crisis for allowing a substantial military presence to protect the removed Emir Aminu Ado Bayero, a position swiftly discredited by the Office of the National Security Adviser.

Before this, Kano State Deputy Governor, Comrade Aminu Abdussalam Gwarzo, apologized to the NSA for his implication in the Kano crises, attributing the error to flawed intelligence.

Recognizing the respected professional background and integrity of the NSA throughout his time as an Officer and Anti-corruption campaigner, the state deemed it necessary to retract the allegation and offer a sincire apology.

In harmony with these events, the Governor’s meeting with the NSA coincided with Emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi II’s six-day stay at the Kano palace,

The state governor assured that Kano is peaceful while urging all residents to continue their regular activities in compliance with the rule of law.

“It was a fruitful discussion between myself and the National Security Adviser, his role is critical for the harmonious existence of our nation, so I briefed him on the recent developments in Kano,” Yusuf confirmed.
