Governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje has stated that his colleagues from the southern and northern parts of the country have no reason to be at loggerheads.

Recall that the controversy over value-added tax (VAT) collection and the power shift demand ahead of the 2023 elections have pitted some southern governors against their northern counterparts.

Ganduje while speaking on Friday after the Independence Day parade in Kano state described the development as “unfortunate and unnecessary”.

According to the Kano governor, the disagreement is promoting disunity in the country, stressing that the unity of the country is paramount.

“Therefore, I will like to seize this opportunity to call on all elites, members of the public, all stakeholders and all nationalities irrespective of religious and ethnic inclinations to come together and make sure that Nigeria continues to be unified, and our unity to grow from strength to strength,” he said.

“All governors were voted not to divide Nigeria, but to make Nigeria one for progress and development.

“It is unfortunate that the two are exchanging uncomplimentary languages to each other.”
