Emir Of KanoNigerians have been charged to see the cultural and traditional diversities existing among various ethnic groups in Nigeria as a unifying factor rather than one that should divide them.

This charge was made by the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Sanusi and the Awujale and paramount ruler of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona, in Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, when the former paid a courtesy call on him in his palace in Ijebu Ode.

The event was attended by members of the Ijebu traditional council, former governors of Ogun State, captains of industry, members of the Ogun State Executive Council among other dignitaries

The courtesy call, according to the Emir of Kano, was to extend his hands of fellowship to the Awujale for his role in his emergence as the Emir of Kano and to seek more collaboration and understanding with the paramount ruler.

As expected, the Emir solicited for cultural integration among his people and the South West Nigeria.

The Oba of Lagos, who was also part of the meeting, asked traditional rulers to live above board in their responsibility as custodians of culture and tradition.

Speaking passionately about the need to protect the integrity of the royal class, he threatened to expose some of the roles played by some traditional rulers during the Abacha regime.

The Awujale and the paramount ruler of Ijebuland, gave some advise to the new Emir and also prayed for continuous peace and harmony in the country.
