Kano, Lagos must lead peace in Nigeria, says Tinubu
Acknowledging the prevailing security threat in the country defying military intervention, Tinubu insisted that Kano and Lagos, which have common population density and strong economic base, must be protected to lead a peaceful atmosphere in the country.
The former Lagos governor spoke yesterday at the palace of the Emir of Kano while marking his 69th birthday in Kano.
According to Tinubu, the two largest cities that host Nigerians from all backgrounds regardless of religion, tribe or language, have no alternative but to continue promoting unity, tolerance, and a peaceful atmosphere.
He, however, emphasised the need to overcome the security challenges, otherwise, the nation might find it difficult to sustain its greatness.
“Nigeria is going through difficult times, especially challenges of insecurity. There cannot be developed in the absence of peace and stability.
“Kano has enjoyed stability and peace despite the challenges in Nigeria. The governors have promoted unity in the faces of difficulties. We must commend them,” Tinubu said.
The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Bayero, had welcomed Tinubu to his palace and pledged the emirate’s support for his mission to lead the country to a greater height.
Tinubu was guided to inspection ongoing projects by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, including cancer treatment centre at Muhammad Buhari Specialist Hospital, the new facility at the state’s Anti-graft Commission, Dangote Skill Acquisition Centre, and Kofa Matter Flyover.
The former Lagos governor applauded Ganduje for the foresight and commitment to initiate the developmental projects in the state.
