The Arewa House Lecture Series is organised every year in honour of one of the post-colonial leaders of Nigeria, Sir Ahmadu Bello, the late Sardauna of Sokoto.
The politician who is currently in Kaduna state was the subject of a controversial discussion in the course of the week over the Kano state government’s decision to host his birthday lecture at the state house.

The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, (AYCF) had threatened to take legal action against Kano State Governor, Abdulahi Ganduje over his plans to use the state’s Government House for Bola Tinubu’s birthday, describing it as “an insult on the symbol of authority that the Government House has been to the Kano people for decades”.
A statement signed by the AYCF National President, Alhaji Yerima Shettima, took exception to the choice of Kano Government House as the only place in the North for celebrating Tinubu’s birthday, “a man who kept quiet while Northerners were under attack in Oyo and some parts of the Southwest.
While people from Ganduje’s Northern Nigeria were being maimed, Tinubu kept mute even when Northerners’ assets were being destroyed in the guise of hunting down imaginary herdsmen he could not even condemn the violence. Yet this is shamelessly the special guest for Ganduje in Kano Government House.”
