Abdullahi Ganduje, the governor of Kano state, got people talking as he wrote to the Presidency requesting that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd. ), postpones his visit to the state.

The president was expected to pay a one-day visit to the state on Monday.

The APC bigwig expressed his deep concern over the Central Bank of Nigeria’s policy regarding the redesigned naira notes and its insistence on the January 31 deadline.

It was gathered that the decision to postpone the visit was related to the most recent demonstration by locals in Katsina state, where the president ordered the state government to carry out various initiatives.
