The frosty relationship between President Goodluck Jonathan and the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, may be a thing of the past as information reaching DailyPost says the two have settled their difference.
According to Premium Times report, the two met at the Presidential Villa in Abuja today and reconciled. The peace meeting, initiated by Emir Sanusi, sources say had all the senior members of the Kano Emirate Council in attendance. The Vice President, Namadi Sambo, the National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, Attorney General, Mohammed Adoke, and the Foreign Affairs Minister, Aminu Wali also attended the meeting.
Sanusi, a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria stirred the controversy when he accused the Federal Government of diverting monies running into billions of dollars, with no accurate figure, as he kept quoting different figures as the missing money. He was fired in February this year after a Financial Reporting Council report indicted him of financial recklessness among other things.
He became the Emir of Kano after the death of the former Emir, Ado Bayero amid controversies, leading to his being turbaned at the Kano State Government House, a move many say was against the tradition and culture of the Kano Emirate.
