He disclosed that the state government recently donated foodstuffs to displaced persons affected by insurgency in Borno and Yobe states as part of effort to cushion their sufferings.
Kwankwaso added that the state government would soon send relief materials to displaced persons in Adamawa and other affected states.
He said he aware of the recent visit of the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi II, to Jonathan for reconciliation.
“The Emir of Kano told me he was going to Abuja for a meeting with President Jonathan and I gave him approval to go. The Emir, after their meeting with the President, also briefed me all what happened there.
“I will be very happy if Villa will be inviting Kano people for reconciliation”, he said. (NAN)
