Kano residents have commended the reconciliation of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje with the Emir of Kano, Malam Muhammadu Sanusi II by the duo of Alhaji Aliko Dangote and Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State in Abuja on Friday.
Some residents, who spoke with News Agency of Nigeria on Saturday in Kano, expressed happiness at the reconciliation.
According to some of them, the reconciliation was in the best interest of peace in the state and the nation.
Dr Abba Ahmed, a retired civil servant in the state, said the reconciliation provided much relief to many residents.
“I have been tensed since the issue started, especially as I live close to the Emirate.

He explained that the situation was one of the few bad things that could happen to Kano, thus commended the committee that brokered peace between the two leaders.
Malam Nura Muhammad, a civil servant, told NAN that the reconciliation was timely as it would save the whole of Northern Nigeria a lot of trouble.
“Kano has indeed become a centre for democracy not only in the North but in the whole country and many states look up to it for new political strategies.
“It’s also a hub for traditional influence where the Emirate plays a vital role in global affairs, while the Emir himself has attracted global attention,” he said.
Malam Muhammad Ahmad, a businessman, said the reconciliation had saved Kano from shame because of so many uncertainties that could arise if the whole process had continued.
He urged residents to keep praying for more peace in the state and the country at large and avoid developing enmities on political issues.
NAN recalls that the Kano State government on Thursday issued a query to the Emir of Kano over alleged misappropriation of N3.4billion by the Emirate Council.
