The Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has reconciled the differences between two illustrious sons of the state. Aliko Dangote and Abdussamad Isyaka Rabi’u over trade dispute.
Ganduje achieved the feat, with the support of the renowned business mogul, Alhaji Aminu Alhassan Dantata, Kano Emirate and the Kano State Council of Imams.
The reconciliation meeting took place at Kano Governor’s Lodge, Asokoro, Abuja, Wednesday, where all contending issues were said to have been sorted out.
As a result, both parties, Chairman of Dangote Group of Companies and Chairman BUA Group of Companies, agreed to work together and supply enough sugar to satisfy the demand of the country.
They were also said to have dismissed allegation that Dangote was planning to see to the increase of sugar price, through pressuring BUA to succumb to the increment, describing the story as baseless and lacking any iota of truth.
