Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has tasked Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) to promote understanding and harmonious coexistence for peace and stability to reign in the state.
Ganduje made the call in a statement by Abba Anwar, his Chief Press Secretary on Friday in Kano.
Ganduje said that while genuine demands were ingredients of democracy, destruction was not a right step in democratic settings.
According to him, curfew was imposed in some states where demonstration is seen from various perspectives and depending on certain variables.
“It is absolutely necessary to understand that anything that can cause another stay at home should be avoided,’’ Ganduje was quoted as saying.
The state government also met with conveners of the Sabo Gari protest and deliberated over their demands, the governor said.
He added that differences could be address amicably through dialogue.
“You as leaders of the CSOs, you are representing people, your opinion and interpretation is important,’’ he added.
The statement also quoted Ismaila Hussaini-Kanye, Chairman, Youth Coalition and Advocacy for Development, as calling on government to compensate victims affected in the Tuesday’s disturbances in Sabon Gari area of Kano.
