The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, on Thursday met with the acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, behind closed doors for over two hours.

The meeting, which started at about 2.40pm when Sanusi arrived at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, was held inside Osinbajo’s office.

The traditional ruler emerged from the venue of the meeting at about 4.50pm into the waiting hands of State House correspondents.

He, however, refused to answer any question on the purpose of his visit.

He concentrated on exchanging pleasantries with some presidential aides and other members of staff as he made his way out of the premises.

As of the time of filing this report, no official statement had been issued on the agenda of the meeting and its outcome.

The Kano State House of Assembly recently dropped its investigation into a petition filed against the Emir following a letter written to the lawmakers by the state Governor, Alhaji Abdullahi Ganduje.

Ganduje had in the letter mentioned Osinbajo as one of the prominent Nigerians who intervened on behalf of Sanusi.

The acting President had this week commenced a series of consultations with critical stakeholders over the ultimatum handed down by some northern youths to the Igbo living in the North to leave their region on or before October 1.

He had so far met separately with leaders of thought from the North and the South-East on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively.

The acting President is scheduled to meet with traditional rulers from the South-East on Friday while traditional rulers from the North will take their turn on Monday.
