Following the leadership crisis in Kano State between Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and Mohammed Sanusi, a matter that has since degenerated serious tension within the State, with likely consequences on peace and security and with the possibility of spilling into neighbouring states, a group of elders, under the chairmanship of General Abdulsalami Abubakar, GCFR has been formed to intervene in the crisis, with a view to bringing about, full reconciliation and effective resolution of the matter.

They have each confirmed to hold back from taking any further actions until the committee has fully undertaken and finalised this exercise of reconciliation and resolution.

The statement further revealed that they have respectively been mandated to call on all their supporters and sympathisers including social media operators to refrain from making statements, declarations, songs, articles, blogs and all actions inimical to the spirit and process of good governance, order and reconciliation. ”We call on everyone to hearken to the call of their principals.”
