Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano, has reconciled the two warring factions of the state house of assembly.

The police had on Tuesday, sealed off the house amid a plot to remove Abdullahi Ata, the speaker.

Ata emerged in July following the resignation of Kabiru Rurum who stepped down after corruption allegations were levelled against him.

The lawmakers had accused Ata of incompetence and failure to involve them in critical issues about the house.

At least 24 members of the assembly have reportedly endorsed the removal of the speaker and all principal officers.

However, Muhammad Garba, the state commissioner for information, in a statement said Ganduje intervened in the crisis and held a reconciliation meeting late yesterday at the government house.

Ata had postponed activities in the assembly till the end of June, saying it is to make members prepare for Ramadan, but Garba  said the house will reopen on Thursday to further consolidate the resolutions reached at the meeting.

He added that the intervention to resolve the crisis is in the interest of peace and democratic development of the state.

The aggrieved lawmakers removed two principal officers in the house on Tuesday despite police intervention.

Those affected are Labaran Abdul, chief whip of the house, and Mohammadu Butu- Butu, deputy majority leader.
