The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, has told First Lady Oluremi Tinubu to inform President Bola Tinubu about the significant levels of hunger and starvation prevailing in the nation.
The emir made the plea when Tinubu’s wife visited him at his palace in Kano on Monday
“Although we have several means of communicating to the government on our needs and requests, your way and means is the surest way to tell the President the actual happenings in the country,” Bayero, who spoke through an interpreter, told the First Lady.
The monarch said the hunger crisis “has become more alarming and needs urgent attention.”
He also urged Tinubu’s wife to push the president to tackle escalating insecurity.
“The issue of insecurity is another serious problem we are facing. I know your government inherited it, but something more serious should be done to take care of the threats,” Bayero stated.
The first-class traditional leader also raised concerns on the Federal Government’s plan to relocate offices of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria and Central Bank of Nigeria from Abuja to Lagos.
“We should be made to actually understand the reasons behind the relocation. I for one cannot tell the actual intentions of the government,” Bayero said.
