The Governor of Kano State Governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, on  Wednesday, blaze the trail by the abolishing non-indigene status in Kano State.
Kano, he said, is home to all and no one could be tagged or referred to as particular indigene of the status.
This was in reaction to the eviction order earlier issued the Igbos by the Coalition of Arewa Youths to Igbos to vacate the region before on or October 1, 2017.
Another reason he gave for the abolition was the state’s position as a commercial nerve centre which he said was the result of the contributions of people of diverse backgrounds, especially Igbo.
He made the disclosure while speaking to a delegation from Abia State, who paid him a condolence visit over the death of the late Alhaji Yusuf Maitama Sule.
The high-powered delegation included a former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Vincent Ogbulafor, and former Senate President, Chief Adolphus Wabara, among others.
While speaking Ganduje, said he was upset by the quit notice issued to Igbo people in the North by some groups, “when the ejection order or migration order was given, we in Kano said, No, that nobody was going anywhere!”

 “Here in Kano, we discussed with our youths and we discussed with the people and with those who were being referred to as non-indigenes.
“We have abolished that (indigene and non-indigene) boundary in Kano. Everybody staying in Kano is an indigene of Kano State. You can only say that you are an indigene of Kano with primordial claims elsewhere. But, as far we are concerned now, you and your children are indigenes of the state.
“The reason why we have this belief is historical. Kano, being the commercial nerve centre of the North, being the commercial nerve centre for some West Africa countries, Kano could not have attained that status without other nationalities or without other parts of the country, especially Igbo.” 
The governor added that “If that is our pride, commercial nerve centre, 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.”
Continuing, he said “America is great because people from different cultures, people with different comparative advantages were put together. Everybody came with his talent, initiative and wisdom. That is what made American great!
“You can hardly be great with homogeneity. Heterogeneity is the way to development all over the world.”
While appreciating the delegation for visiting the state, he told the dignitaries that, “Your coming to Kano to console us today tells a lot across the divide. It speaks much about the national integration that we are trying to achieve.”
Responding Abia State Governor, Dr Victor Okezie Ikpeazu, thanked the governor and added that he has been to virtually all the thirty-six states in Nigeria and had seen the bond of unity binding the country which leaves Nigeria better off as one united country. He rounded off his remark by saying that the unity of Nigeria was not questionable.
