The Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf, on Thursday, visited the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu, at the Office of the National Security Adviser in Abuja.

The meeting, which lasted for more than an hour, was prompted by the recent happenings in Kano 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.

A statement issued by the governor’s Spokesperson, Sanusi Bature, said the two political leaders deliberated on various matters relating to state, and national development and the peaceful coexistence of the nation during the meeting.

“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,” the governor was quoted to have said in the statement.

The statement added that the governor’s meeting with the NSA coincided with Emir Sanusi II’s six-day stay at the Kano palace, where a significant majority of district heads and kingmakers already pledged their allegiance and loyalty to the Emir.

The PUNCH reports 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 NSA.

The Kano State Deputy Governor, Aminu Abdussalam Gwarzo, who accused the NSA of involvement in the Kano crisis, later apologized, attributing the error to flawed intelligence.
