Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II held a closed-door meeting at the Kano Government House in Kano on Sunday.

Ganduje’s spokesman, Tanko Yankassi, made their discussion public via a statement.

He explained that Emir Sanusi’s visit was the traditional Hawan Nassarawa homage.

In his remark, Ganduje spoke of his government’s effort towards ensuring peace, security and development of Kano State.

“We have also built ten security dormitories, each capable of housing 60 security officials to help the police in surveillance along the major highways coming onto the state capital”, he said.

Ganduje further stated that his administration, in conjunction with security agencies, have taken concrete steps to end criminal activities within Falgore forest.

The governor added that so far, the Nigerian Army has established a training facility for soldiers in the forest.

He told the Emir that his administration has committed huge resources to the provision of public infrastructure like metropolitan roads, rural access infrastructure, hospitals and classrooms among others, requesting for the sustained support of the Emirate Council to forge ahead.

Earlier, Emir Sanusi urged the government to focus more on economic development, especially alleviating the current hardship being faced by Nigerians.

He also urged political leaders to caution their supporters against causing public disturbances, saying it was also imperative on them to generate more employment opportunities for the teeming youths in the country.

Meanwhile, security agents in Kano on Sunday arrested dozens of Boko Haram members.
