Kano couldn't have become the commercial nerve center of the North without the help of the Igbos– state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje says

Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, says without the help of other ethnic nationalities especially the Igbos, Kano state couldn't have attained its status as the commercial nerve center of Northern Nigeria. Ganduje said this when he received the Abia state governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, in his office.
Ikpeazu and some Igbo leaders were in the state to pay a condolence visit over the death of elder statesman, Maitama Sule, who died in Egypt early this month. 
 
The governor said this while reacting to the call by some Arewa youths for Igbos in the region to leave on or before October 1st

“Kano being the commercial nerve-centre of the North, Kano being the commercial nerve-centre of some West African countries, could not have attained that status without other nationalities or without other parts of the country, especially the Igbo. So, if that is our pride, why do we have to break our backbone of commerce? We need to maintain our status. And to maintain our status, we need people from all over the country to be with us. America is great because people from different cultures, people with different comparative advantages were put together; everybody came with his talent, with his own initiation, with his own wisdom.   That is what made America to be great. You can hardly be great with homogeneity; heterogeneity is the way to development all over the world” he said
