The Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, vsited the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Thursday to thank him.

The meeting took place at the Vice-President’s mini conference room and lasted for about two hours.

Though the Emir declined to comment on the outcome of the meeting but NAN reliably gathered that the Emir was on a “Thank You’’ visit to the acting president, who recently joined other well meaning Nigerians to stop the Kano State House of Assembly from its investigation of alleged misappropriation of funds and other infractions levelled against the Emir.

Recall that the House resolved to drop the probe following a plea through a letter by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State.

The letter was read by the speaker, Kabiru Rirum, on the floor of the House.

In his letter, Mr. Ganduje said he was calling for the investigation to be dropped as a result of interventions by highly-placed personalities in the matter.

According to the letter, the personalities include the acting president, Yemi Osinbajo; party leaders; former Military President, Ibrahim Babangida; former Head of State, Abdulsalami Abubakar; Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar; and businessmen and indigenes of the state, Aliko Dangote and Aminu Dantata.

NAN gathered that the Emir’s visit to the Presidential Villa might also be part of the ongoing consultations by the acting president with stakeholders which began with foremost Leaders of thought from the Northern and South East States of the federation.



The anti-corruption war has come to an abrupt end. Now time to tally up the number of highly placed citizens of this great country convicted.
