In a meeting held behind closed doors, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday met with the Emir of Kano, Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The meeting took place at the Vice-President’s mini conference room and lasted for about two hours.
The Emir declined to comment on the outcome of the meeting when approached by State House correspondents.
According to reports, the Emir was on a “Thank You’’ visit to the acting president, who recently joined other well meaning Nigerians to stop the Kano State House of Assembly from its investigation of alleged misappropriation of funds and other infractions levelled against the Emir.
Recalling, the Kano state Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, through a letter pleaded with State Assembly to drop the probe as a result of interventions by highly placed personalities in the matter.
According to the letter, the personalities include the acting president, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo; party leaders; former military President Ibrahim Babangida; former head of state Abdulsalami Abubakar; Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar; and businessmen and indigenes of the state, Aliko Dangote and Aminu Dantata.
The Emir’s visit to the Presidential Villa might be part of the ongoing consultations by the Acting President with stakeholders which began with foremost Chieftains from the Northern and South East States of the Federation.
The consultation was sequel to the calls for secession by youth from different ethnic groups in the country resulting in some asking others to vacate their region before Oct. 1.
