Both men had not been seen together publicly since the governor split the Kano emirate council into five.

Ganduje has been severely criticised over the move believed to be targetted at the emir who reportedly opposed his reelection bid.

But he has denied any wrongdoing, attributing the development to the need to take governance closer to the people.

The Eid el-Fitr celebrations brought the two together less than 24 hours after news broke that the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-corruption Commission had recommended the suspension of the emir over alleged misappropriation of N3.4 billion.
