Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has agreed to allow for a dialogue between Sheikh Abduljabbar Nasiru Kabara and Kano clerics.
A statement by the governor’s press secretary Abba Anwar said the decision was arrived after a special meeting between the governor and Islamic clerics from all Muslim sects.
After the meeting, resolutions were made and agreed upon by the governor. “He accepts the dialogue between the parties, as a response to AbdulJabbar call for justice,” the statement said.
It was agreed that, all Muslims sects would be represented at the dialogue meeting. While some prominent scholars would also be invited from outside Kano to witness the dialogue.
Government will provide a venue for the debate and the necessary security for the overall safety of the exercise, before, during and after.
The dialogue will be aired live in local and foreign radio stations. The clerics were given two weeks to prepare their points.
