Few hours after the Governor of Kano State, Umar Ganduje urged President Muhammadu Buhari to postpone his planned visit to the state, the governor has rescinded his decision.
According to him, the president is now free to go ahead with his scheduled Monday visit to the state.
According to Daily Post, the Governor changed his mind after he led a delegation from the state to meet with President Buhari in his country home in Daura, Katsina State on Sunday.
“We are now ready to receive him and we have a lot for him to commission including federal government projects and state government projects. They are state-of-the-art projects."
Ganduje had revealed that his government had requested the President to postpone the trip, saying that the state was deeply concerned about the hardship principally induced by the ongoing cash swap from old to redesigned notes.
But despite the Governor’s objection, Buhari had made up his mind to go ahead with the Monday visit.
Presidency sources had disclosed that he would go on to commission some projects implemented by the federal government in Kano.
But Ganduje on Sunday affirmed that he led the delegation to Daura over the issue of the ongoing currency swap and was happy with him.
“Seeing is believing. You can see that I have led a powerful delegation from Kano State on the issue of new naira notes and we have seen Mr. President.
"We have laid the complaints of the Kano people and we are very happy.”
