The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, has urged Nigeria’s First Lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, to intimate President Tinubu about the dire hunger and starvation in the country.

He said the situation is alarming.

The Emir made the call when the first lady paid him a courtesy visit at his palace on Monday.

“Although we have several means of communicating to the government on our needs and request, your way and means is the surest way that you would tell the President the actual happenings in the country.

“The hunger and starvation, though didn’t start with this government, the situation has become more alarming and needs urgent attention.”

In the same vein, Aminu Ado Bayero, explained that, “the issues of insecurity is another serious problem we are facing. I know your government inherited it, but something more seriously should be done to take care of the threats.

“We are receiving series of messages from our people. One of such message is the much talks about relocation of CBN and FAAN to Lagos, I think the Government should come out clean on this matter and talk to Nigerians in the languages they would understand.

“Do more enlightenment on this matter. I for one cannot tell the actual intentions of the government, we should be made to actually understand why the relocation of the CBN and FAAN offices are now to Lagos.”

Bayero, while commending the first lady for her care on the wellbeing and welfare of the children, advised her to actualize her Renewed Hope Initiative Pet Programme, adding that the programme, if fully achieved, would free the underprivileged people from the shackles of problems.

The First Lady who was in Kano at the opening of a Faculty of Law building at Maryam Abacha American University named after her promised to convey the message to Nigerians.
