‘Nigerians are suffering’ – Emir of Kano tells Tinubu
By Muhammad Ahmad
The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, on Monday, told Nigeria’s First Lady Oluremi Tinubu to inform her husband, President Bola Tinubu about the unprecedented hardship in the country.
The emir who spoke through an interpreter during the visit of Mrs Tinubu to the state, also asked the president to urgently address the issue of insecurity across the six geo-political zones of Nigeria.
“I want to admit that you inherited this situation, but the horrific decline in the standard of living under your administration is alarming and deserves urgent attention,” he said.
“The issue of insecurity is another serious problem we are facing. I know your government inherited it, but something more serious should be done to take care of the threats.”
Speaking on the relocation of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and some departments of the Central Bank of Nigeria, (CBN) to Lagos, he urged the federal government to “come out clean on this matter and talk to Nigerians in the language they would understand”.
“Do more enlightenment on this matter, I cannot tell the actual intentions of the Government, we should be able to actually understand why the relocation of the CBN and FAAN offices back to Lagos”.
On the other hand, he commended Mrs. Tinubu for her care for the well-being of the Nigerian children and advised on the need to actualize her pet Program under the Renewed Hope Agenda to accommodate the less privileged in society.
