Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, on Monday, appealed to the 19 Northern governors to try their best in ensuring that the New Nigerian Development Company (NNDC) is brought back to life.
Sanusi made this statement whenthe board of directors of the NNDC visited him in Kano.
The former Central Bank Governor said the call was necessary for the promotion of socio-economic development in the region in particular and the entire nation at large.
Emir Sanusi said the task of making the company vibrant and formidable cannot be realised without the collective effort of the northern governors.
According to the Emir, “restoring the company’s lost glory will facilitate socio-economic development in the North in particular and Nigeria as a whole”.
“The call is necessary in view of the urgent need for the governors to come together for the realisation of the desired objective,” Mr. Sanusi said.
“The people of the North East are in need of more assistance from the Federal Government and it will greatly reduce their sufferings”.
