Nigerians are hungry, the Emir of Kano tells Buhari.

The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, has stated that the country’s current economic crisis is causing immeasurable misery for Nigerians, encouraging the government to find a long-term solution as soon as possible.

“Nigerians are suffering from perpetual hunger coupled with security challenges,” the monarch said yesterday while receiving President Muhammadu Buhari at his palace.

He urged the Federal Government to ease the economic crunch that is impoverishing the masses, citing the high cost of food and consumables in the country as a result of hyperinflation.

He also called Buhari’s attention to the country’s security concerns, urging the government to step up efforts to restore peace.

“We want to commend the President for the infrastructure development across the country, particularly those sited in Kano, just as the governor listed some of such projects despite the shortfalls in the globally economy.

“We hope the presidential aides would continue to advise the President on the condition and wellbeing of the poor masses, especially in those aspects where he would need to be informed on certain development for necessary action. This is a responsibility upon us, which we need to discharge accordingly,” he said.

While assuring Buhari of the emirate’s continuous prayers for his administration, the royal father praised the President for recognizing Kano as a crucial piece of the federal government’s infrastructure.

In turn, Buhari complimented the monarch on his recent inauguration as Kano’s 15th Emir.
