President Goodluck Jonathan and a former Central Bank Governor, Lamido Sanusi, on Wednesday met for the first time since he (Sanusi) became the Emir of Kano.

The former CBN boss was one of the northern traditional rulers who joined Jonathan in the Presidential Villa, Abuja for the breaking of Ramadan fast.

The traditional rulers were led by the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III.

Sanusi led others in a special prayer for peace during the short event held inside the President’s residence.

Jonathan later took turn to shake hands with all the traditional rulers in attendance, including Sanusi to the admiration of his aides.

Abubakar, who spoke on behalf of his colleagues, condemned the twin blasts recorded in Kaduna earlier in the day as well as other acts of violence across the country.

While describing the perpetrators as enemies of humanity, he insisted that they and their sponsors had no Islamic agenda.

He requested that the President should grant the traditional rulers an audience in the nearest future in order to discuss issues of national importance.

The President granted the request immediately.

In his short remarks, Jonathan urged the traditional rulers to join hands with his administration to end insurgency.

“It could have been worse than this if not for prayers. We will surely get over it. We are doing our best to ensure we end this situation and with the support of Nigerians, we shall surely overcome,” he said.
