Sanusi II was overthrown, according to Governor Ganduje, because he disobeyed the law and refused to show up to meetings.

The Kano State government, headed by Governor Ganduje, deposed Emir Sanusi on Monday, March 9, 2020, according to an earlier report from Anaedoonline.ng.

This online news source is aware that Governor Ganduje presided over the State Council executive meeting immediately after which Emir Sanusi was deposed.

In contrast, Emir Sanusi’s deposition was attributed to his “complete disregard to legitimate directions from the office of the governor and other lawful authorities,” according to a statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Usman Alhaji.

“The Emir of Kano is in total disrespect to lawful instructions from the office of the governor and other lawful authorities, including his persistent refusal to attend officials meetings and programmes organised by the government without any lawful justification which amounts to total insubordination.
