First Lady, Sen Remi Tinubu on Monday, paid a courtsey visit to the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, at his palace in Kano State.

The former Lagos East Senator paid homage to the monarch alongside some of her aides and Nana Shettima, the wife of Vice President Kashim Shettima.

Speaking during the visit, the First Lady said the Tinubu administration means well for the nation and doing its best to address the various challenges facing the nation.

Responding, the Emir of Kano urged the First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu, to tell President Bola Tinubu about the high level of hunger and starvation in the country.

“Although we have several means of communicating to the government on our needs and requests, but your way and means is the surest way to tell the President the actual happenings in the country,”
the emir told Tinubu’s wife, who was in Kano to open the faculty of law at a private university.

The emir, who spoke through an interpreter, added, “The hunger and starvation didn’t start with this government but the situation has become more alarming and needs urgent attention.”

He also urged her to tell Tinubu to address insecurity, saying, “The issue of insecurity is another serious problem we are facing. I know your government inherited it, but something more serious should be done to take care of the threats.”

Bayero also spoke on the relocation of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, and some departments of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, to Lagos.

“We are receiving series of messages from our people. One of such messages is the much talked 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 language 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 the reasons behind the relocation of the CBN and FAAN offices to Lagos.”


In the same vein, he urged the President’s wife to actualize her Renewed Hope Initiative Pet Program, noting that the scheme, if fully actualized, will free the less privileged from their shackles.
