Kano State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje, has reconciled the two warring factions of the state House of Assembly.

Following the reconciliation, the assembly will reopen today to further consolidate the resolutions reached at the meeting.

The state Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, revealed this in a statement made available to journalists in Kano yesterday that the reconciliation meeting was held late yesterday at the Government House.

Garba stated that the meeting was held between representatives of the two feuding factions and the governor who intervened to resolve the crisis.
He said the intervention to resolve the crisis was in the interest of peace and democratic development of the state.

Garba restated that the meeting was held in a mature and responsible manner.

However, the aggrieved lawmakers of the assembly last Tuesday removed two principal officers even as the police prevented the 24 legislators who stormed the assembly entry into the complex.

The spokesman of the legislators and former Speaker of the House, Alhaji Kabiru Rurum, announced the decision of the members while addressing journalists outside the assembly complex at Audu Bako Secretariat.
