Aminu Gwarzo, the Deputy Governor of Kano State, has apologised to Nuhu Ribadu, the National Security Adviser, for implicating him in the ongoing emirship feud in the state.

Gwarzo had accused Ribadu of playing a role in the return of the deposed Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero, to the state by providing him with private jets.

However, the NSA denied the allegations and threatened legal action.

At a press conference at the Government House, Kano, on Monday, May 27, 2024, Gwarzo apologised to Ribadu, claiming that the government was misinformed about his involvement in the ongoing crisis.

Gwarzo said, “The Office of the National Security Adviser has refuted the allegations and distanced themselves from what we have alleged.

“I have seen it; he has done it through three media, and today, I have seen the one about going to court.

“We have to acknowledge that we have been misled into believing that the NSA was behind the happenings along this line.”

He said they were jolted when Ribadu’s name was mentioned in the plot to impose the deposed emir.

“We apologise to the National Security Adviser, his person, and his office for any embarrassment and inconveniences this might have caused him.

He stated, “We are human and can err at any time. On my behalf and the Governor of Kano State, I want to assure the NSA of our continued support and cooperation in discharging his duty as the NSA.”
