Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and Igbo leaders in the state yesterday rejected calls by some northern leaders that Fulani herdsmen leave the south.
Ganduje and the Eze Ndigbo Kano State, Igwe Boniface Ibekwe, spoke in Kano Saturday at a dinner organised by in honour of the latter on his 10th Offalla anniversary.
Ganduje said: “Those who are calling on the Fulani to leave south, we don’t share the same feeling with them.”
Ibekwe said: “Just look at what is happening now, some people are calling on Fulani to come back to the north. So, if they come back, what will happen to us here in the north? Our people will tell us to go back to South. Is that what our forefathers wished to see us doing?”
