The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, has sent an urgent message to President Tinubu through his wife, the first lady, Oluremi Tinubu.
Senator Oluremi Tinubu was in Kano to open the faculty of law at a private university, after which she paid a courtesy visit to the Emir of Kano, who seized the opportunity to tell the first lady to tell her husband that “Nigerians are hungry”.
‘Although we have several means of communicating to the government on our needs and requests, but your way and means is the surest way to tell the President the actual happenings in the country,” the emir through an interpreter, told Tinubu’s wife.
“The hunger and starvation didn’t start with this government but the situation has become more alarming and needs urgent attention.
The Emir also urged the first lady to speak to her husband about the rising security challenges in the country.
“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.” The Emir said.
On the alleged relocation of the CBN and FAAN to Lagos, the emir asked the presidency to come out clear on there intentions and explain why they want to relocate these important government organization to Lagos.
With stories of protests by Nigerians agitating for a better economy all the over the country, the Emir’s message may just have come at the right time.
