The Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi, has called on the government and traders to address the high cost of consumable items in the country.
Mr. Sanusi made the call in his Sallah message to the people of Kano delivered at his palace shortly after Eid durbar (Hawan Sallah).
The Emir, who lamented the current hardship being experienced by Nigerians, prayed that the bumper harvest being expected this year will bring succour to the masses.
"We are grateful to Almighty Allah for consistent rain. May it bring the end of high cost of food items," the Emir said.
Emir Sanusi warned people on environmental sanitation which he noted tackled malaria and children cum maternal diseases. He asked Nigerians to be united.
"People should avoid rumour mongering and other activities that may bring disunity among Nigerians. Youths should be responsible citizens and embrace different trades for self reliant, as government cannot provide employment to all."
