Emir Of Kano Sends SOS Through Remi Tinubu To President Tinubu

The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, has asked Senator Oluremi Tinubu, Nigeria’s First Lady, to tell President Bola Ahmed Tinubu that the hardship and insecurity in the country had assumed alarming proportions.

The foremost traditional ruler spoke on Monday when the First Lady visited his palace in Kano.

The President’s wife was in town to launch her Renewed Hope Initiative pet programme in Kano.

According to the Emir, the First Lady was best placed to relate her findings about the hunger, insecurity and concerns of the people to the President.

On February 5 and 6, protesters stormed the streets of Kano and Niger states, to protest the ongoing hyper-inflation and high cost of goods and foods.

Bayero said: “Although we have several means of communicating to the government on our needs and requests, your way and means are the surest way to tell the president the actual happenings in the country.

“The hunger and starvation, though didn’t start with this government, but the situation has become more alarming and needs urgent attention.

“The issue of insecurity is another serious problem we are facing, I know your government inherited it, but something more seriously should be done to address the situation.”

He also raised concerns over the relocation of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) offices to Lagos, saying Nigerians needed education on the reason behind the decision.

He said: “We are receiving series of messages from our people, one of such message is the much-talked about relocation of CBN and FAAN to Lagos.

“I think the government should come out clean on this matter and talk to Nigerians in the language they would understand.

“Do more enlightenment on this matter. I for one cannot tell the actual intentions of the government. We should be made to actually understand why the relocation of the CBN and FAAN offices to Lagos.”
