“Certainly, a reconciliation meeting was organised by Governor Fayemi and Alhaji Aliko Dangote and the governor and emir attended the meeting, the governor has not given his stand on the matter," he said.
“What I can confirm to you is that the dialogue is still on, therefore, we should wait for the response of the governor."
The aides statement was in response to an earlier report which stated that the crisis between Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state and the Emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi II may have come to an end after the duo reached a truce on Friday night, June 7, in Abuja, Daily Nigerian reports.
The newspaper noted that President Muhammadu Buhari had earlier on Friday mediated in the matter.
