The Governor of Kano State, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, yesterday in Kano called on the Federal Government to urgently investigate the unfortunate incident, which occurred in the South Eastern part of the country.
Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, while receiving the leadership of Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) yesterday at Government House, led by Chairman of the Group, Nasdura Sharif Ashir, urged the Federal Government to also punish those, who are found wanting the disturbing event.
Similarly, Governor Ganduje expressed satisfaction that the situation has been brought under control by security agents in the troubled areas in the South East.
Also, he maintained that if such punishment were not meted to the perpetrators, it would continue to happen, which will not be good for the country.
According to him, I believe that two wrongs cannot make a right, so, all we need is peaceful coexistence that will lead to rapid development of the country.
He also hailed the efforts of the Group in their efforts to douse the tension that has already been generated.
”I consider that the incident is very unfortunate and I commend your efforts to douse down tension, which I describe as patriotic.
”I am not surprised of these efforts because you have been and still demonstrating that your Group believes in one Nigeria and also your disposition in the belief of President Muhammadu Buhari’s ability in stabilizing the nation.
Earlier, leader of the Group said their mission to the Government House is to sensitize Northerners against being provoked to reprisals, following the unfortunate Port Harcourt incident.
