UPDATED: Sanusi reinstated as 16th Emir of Kano

Published

Abba Yusuf, Kano state Governor, on Friday reappointed Muhammadu Sanusi II as the 16th Emir of Kano.

 

Sanusi received his letter of reinstatement at the Government House in Kano.

 

The governor said, “By the powers conferred on me by the Kano Emirate Council Law of 1984 and 2024, and supported by the recommendation of the kingmakers, I have the singular pleasure of confirming the reappointment of Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Emir of Kano and the head of the Kano Emirate Council.”

 

Yusuf noted that Sanusi’s reappointment was “based on his competence, credibility, and popularity,” urging the new Kano Emir “to be guided by the principles of Islamic teachings and to use his position to unite the emirate, fostering harmony among the Islamic sects in the state.”

 

The 16th Emir of Kano, Sanusi II, had initially ruled as the 14th Emir.

 

The beginning of Sanusi’s travail dates back to 2020 when he had a fallout with the former governor and present National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Ganduje.

The Kano House of Assembly would later pass a bill to split the Kano Emirate Council, majorly under Sanusi’s control, into five emirates, thereby lowering his influence.

Afterwards, Sanusi was sacked and replaced by the recently deposed 15th Emir – Aminu Ado Bayero.

 

But the Assembly, on Thursday, May 23, 2024, dissolved all the five newly created emirate councils in the state – Bichi, Karaye, Gaya, Rano; including Kano, and passed the Kano State Emirate Council (Repeal) Bill 2024 which replaced the Kano State Emirates Council Law, 2019.

 

The 2024 Bill gave the way to reinstate Sanusi.

 

In addition, the governor gave the five emirs a 48-hour ultimatum to vacate their official residences and palaces.

 

Reacting to this, the governor, while recalling past events during the turmoil, said Sanusi was victimised when he was dethroned as the emir, adding that his reinstatement is good for the people of the state.

“We had a series of meetings with the kingmakers yesterday, extensive discussions with the Speaker, and we also sat with all the heads of security. At the end of the day, we all gathered in the chamber where I received the bill that repealed the former law, and we signed the new law repealing all the appointments.

“We did that out of our convictions and belief that this gentleman was victimised in 2019. We all feel that we must restore what is due to the good people of the state.

 

“Let me use this opportunity to humbly thank the Speaker and all members of the House for your determination and respect for the rule of law. It shows your interest in the welfare of the people of the state,” Yusuf said.

 

Present at the event were traditional rulers, kingmakers, and other top dignitaries.

Yusuf also directed them to hand over all affairs to the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs.

 

However, the Federal High Court in Kano has issued an order stopping the Kano State Government from enforcing the Kano State Emirate Council Repeal Law.

 

Justice Mohammed Liman granted the order in an application by Alhaji Aminu Babba Dan Agundi, the Sarkin Dawaki Babba of the Kano Emirate.

 

In the lawsuit concerning the Emir’s seat, the respondents in the fundamental rights case are the Kano State Government, the House of Assembly, the Speaker, the Attorney-General, the Commissioner of Police, the Inspector-General of Police, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, and the State Security Service.
