Kano state government has cancelled the annual traditional Sallah event, Hawan Nassarawa, slated for tomorrow Thursday 6th June, 2019, for security reasons.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Chief Press Seceratry to the Governor Abba Anwar
It said after security meeting held by governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje with all the security agencies, concerning all Sallah celebrations, as it is usually done, there was intelligence report for the fear of breach of peace during the upcoming event.
The statement said it is clear to all that, Governor Ganduje is a peace loving leader, who doesn’t toy with safety and security of his people and all other citizens living in Kano.
For this reason and as a result of the intelligence report, the state government is not relenting, and it declares Hawan Nassarawa cancelled.
Solacebase recalled that relationship between the Emir of Kano Malam Sanusi II and Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has being frosty since after the election that subsequently led to the creation of new Emirates in the state.
These and many more were attributed to reports that the governor alleged that Muhammad Sanusi II worked against his re-election and used the creation of the new emirates as vendetta.
Although the governor has denied this but only came face to face with the Emir at the Eid ground on Tuesday since the creation of the emirates that are subject of litigation presently.
‘’After the security meeting the Kano Metropolitan Emirate Council was duly informed about the terrifying intelligence report and the cancellation of Hawan Nassarawa,’’said the statement.
