- Meeting attended by Dantata, Kano Emirate and Council of Imams
Kano State Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has reconciled two illustrious sons of Kano and Africa’s giant business moguls, Aliko Dangote and Abdul Samad Isyaku Rabi’u following an open war over the control of Nigeria’s sugar market.
Also at the meeting, which took place Wednesday at the Kano Governor’s Lodge in Asokoro Abuja were renowned business mogul, Alhaji Aminu Alhassan Dantata, Kano Emirate and the Kano State Council of Imams
Both the Chairman of Dangote Group and his BUA Group counterpart agreed to work together and supply enough sugar to satisfy the demand of the country.
They all dismissed allegation that Dangote was planning to see to the increase of sugar price, through pressuring BUA to succumb to the increment. They described that allegation as baseless and lacking any iota of truth.
The meeting was seen as the zenith of other similar efforts to reconcile the two giants by the governor. Alhaji Aminu Alhassan Dantata played the role of a father during the meeting.
Present at the meeting were the Minister for Commerce, Trade and Investment, Mr Niyi Adebayo, representative of the Kano Emirate, Alhaji Aminu Babba Dan Agundi, Chairman of the Council of Kano Imams, Sheikh Muhammad Nasir Adam, the Chief Imam of Sheikh Ahmadu Tijjani Friday Mosque, Kofar Mata, Kano and the Chairman of NEPZA, Hon.

All the two business moguls agreed to work together as brothers for the growth and development of the nation at large. Assuring that, henceforth, there would be no differences, that could cause any disharmony between them.
