Kwankwaso, Ganduje Must Reconcile To Restore Peace In Kano – APC Chieftain


Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kano State, Alhajj Alhassan Yaryasa, has called on two former governors and political leaders in the state –  Abdullahi Ganduje and Rabiu Kwankwaso to resolve their differences in order to allow Kano people live in peace.

“Kano people want to live in peace and they are after the progress and development of the state. There is the need for them – Kwankwaso and Ganduje – to forgive each other in order for the people to live in peace,” Yaryasa said.

He also advised the people not to engage in any act capable of plunging the state into trouble or violence.

“My advice to residents and the entire people of the state is that they should live in peace with one another because it is the bedrock of any development in the society,” he added.

Yaryasa stressed that it is the prayers of Islamic scholars and other well-meaning Nigerians that are sustaining the current peace in Kano since the coming of the administration of Governor Abba Yusuf.

The APC chieftain, who made these remarks in a telephone interview in Kano, noted that the people would continue to offer prayers for peace to prevail in the state.

“With the dissolution of the five emirates, if not because of prayers, Kano would have been on fire or in chaos by now.

“The matter is currently in court. So, it will be contempt or disrespect to the court if Governor Abba reinstates Sanusi,” he said.

Yaryasa, who is also a former Coordinator of the Tinubu Campaign Organisation for Kano South, noted that the dissolution of the new emirates was nothing but vendetta against the person of Ganduje.

“We know before now that people who do not wish the state well have been calling on the governor to dissolve the emirates, and now that he has done so, let us see what will happen.

“Those calling for the scrapping of the emirates are nothing but enemies of the state. I said it before and I am still maintaining my stand that scrapping it will not augur well for the state,” he insisted.

According to Yaryasa, the state has witnessed unprecedented eight years of peace, stability, social and economic progress without a day when the people took to the streets to protest anything.

He stated, “Of course, this decision (dethronement of emirs) was only intended to cause ill feelings among the peace-loving people of Kano State.

“However, since the coming of this retrogressive government, Kano has witnessed extreme unpopular policies with a lot of bitterness capable of causing unrest in the state.

“We witnessed the demolition spree immediately the government came in and other policies that are detrimental to social and economic development.”
