Aminu Gwarzo, the deputy governor of Kano State, has issued an apology to Nuhu Ribadu, the National Security Adviser, after previously implicating him in the ongoing emirship tussle in the state.

NewsBand reported that Aminu had alleged that Ribadu provided two aircraft for Bayero’s early morning return to Kano at 4:30am on Saturday.

“The National Security Adviser provided two jets to bring the dethroned emir back to Kano and to the palace,” the deputy governor said.

Though, Ribadu immediately denied the accusations and threatened legal action through the office of NSA.

However, during a press conference at the government house, Kano, on Monday, Gwarzo apologised to Ribadu, noting that the state government was misinformed about his involvement in the ongoing face-off.

“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,” Gwarzo said.

Speaking further, he said they were dismayed from the beginning when Ribadu’s name was mentioned in the plot to impose the deposed emir, Aminu Bayero.

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

“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,” he stated.
