Reconciliation Talks with Kwankwaso Ongoing, Says Ganduje ‎

By Tobi Soniyi in Abuja

Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, on Friday in Abuja said he had opened reconciliation talks with his predecessor, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso.

He made the disclosure during an interaction with State House correspondents after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He said: “The situation is under control; it is an in-house problem which is under control. We are talking about it.

“Yes, reconciliation is ongoing and it will work. We have been together for long. We are politically brothers and friends. Therefore, we will make sure that we don’t allow things to continue to fall apart.

“Kano is the most populous state in the country. Kano was the one that provided the highest number of votes for the President. Kano is the state that has 100 percent APC in whichever elected posts you can think of.

“We shall put heads together to make sure that there is peace and stability in the state.” He added

On whether he will continue to wear the read cap, which was Kwankwaso’s trademark and mostly worn by his supporters, he replied with: “What are you seeing on my head now?”

He disclosed that he briefed Buhari about the security situation in Kano, especially on cattle rustling and kidnapping, which he said was under control.

According to him, the amnesty package extended to those that have decided to turn a new leaf and their empowerment programme were also discussed during the meeting.

He added: “We talked about irrigation, especially the production of wheat with dry farming. Now, we are getting ready for the production of rice. So Kano State is providing an enabling environment
for farmers, cutting off the middlemen, the farmers are getting the best out of it.
“I think with what we are seeing in Kano State, there is hope in agriculture. We have provided enabling environment for rice, wheat and tomatoes.

“On security, for long time now, we have not got any eventuality within the city. Even the castle rustling has gone down. We recovered more than 10,000 cattle and we have returned them to their owners free of charge.
