A group known as the Committee of Elders of Kano has just been formed to meet and find a resolution to the impasse which ensued after last Saturday’s gubernatorial election in Kano state.
It would be recalled that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared the Kano governorship election inconclusive with the results so far released showing that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial candidate, Abba Kabir-Yusuf, leading the incumbent governor and candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.
The Committee, under the chairmanship of Alhaji Aminu Dantata, also has members like Africa’s richest man and industrialist Aliko Dangote, Bashir Tofa, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, Halliru Akilu.
Members of the Committee are currently at the airport to receive Aliko Dangote and the venue of the meeting is the palace of the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi II.
It is rumoured that the Committee will, during their meeting, put a call through to President Muhammadu Buhari, to tell him they will never allow Kano to be destroyed because of Governor Ganduje’s ambition.
Abba Yusuf has also been invited to the meeting.
