The Kano State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje, and Emir of Kano, Mallam Lamido Sanusi, during the Eid Fitri celebration on Tuesday prayed together and discussed the state’s development at length after the prayer.

Both men have not met since Ganduje split the Kano emirate, which used to be under Sanusi’s sole control, into five.

Dressed in his full royal regalia, Emir Sanusi shook hands and shared mirthful banters with the governor at the praying ground.

Reports spread on Monday about Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-corruption Commission which recommended Sanusi’s suspension over alleged misappropriation of N3.4 billion.

The emir was said to have opposed Ganduje’s re-election bid, a move which backfired after the governor narrowly won a fiercely contested election.

Ganduje, however, has insisted that his move to have more emirates in the state was for development and not a vendetta.
