Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has spoken for the first about his political row with his mentor and former governor of the state, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso.
In an interview with Aso Villa correspondents, he described the quarrel as ‘in-house’ affair.
He said the situation is now under control, saying that efforts have been intensified to address the problem.
“The situation is under control, it is an in-house problem which is under control. We are talking about it.
“Yes, reconciliation is ongoing and it will work. We have been together for long; we are politically brothers and friends.
“Therefore, we will make sure that we don’t allow things to continue to fall apart,’’ he said.
When the row blew open, the state chairman of the All Progressives Congress threatened to suspend Kwankwaso’s membership. But days later, he recanted, saying he was forced to read the statement.
