Ahead of the controversial visit to Kano by Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso on Tuesday, the Presidency on Monday summoned Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and the senator to avert breakdown of law and order in Kano State.
The governor, accompanied by two serving senators and two members of the House of Representatives from the state, met with the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari at the Presidential Villa.
Mr. Ganduje, however, declined to speak to State House correspondents after the closed-door meeting.
The Kano State Police Command had earlier advised Mr. Kwankwaso against embarking on the visit due to the tension it has generated. The police fear it might lead to breakdown of law and order.
