The dethronement of Lamido Sanusi as the Emir of Kano will be brought up again under the new administration of Abba Kabir Yusuf in Kano State, according to Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, the NNPP’s presidential candidate for 2023.
The split of the Kano Emirate into five distinct Emirates, he continued, would also be reviewed.
Before the May 29 handover date to Yusuf, who won the 2023 governorship election in Kano State, Kwankwso was cited as saying this in a viral video.
“We have campaigned and as you know we are popular in Nigeria especially in Kano state, we are now back and God willing we will continue with the good works our administration left. This incoming governor and his team will take them up.”
“As elders, we will continue to advise them to do the right thing. We tried not intervene in the issue of bringing or removing any Emir, but now, an opportunity has come.
“Those who were given this opportunity will sit down and see to the issues. They will look at what they are expected to do. Beside the Emir, even the emirate has been divided into five places. All these need to be studied. Usually a leader inherits good, bad and issues that are hard to reconcile.”
Newsmen recall that in March 2020, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje controversially ousted Sanusi from his position as Emir of Kano. Additionally, he was exiled from Kano and brought to the isolated village of Loko in Nasarawa State.
Additionally, Ganduje divided the Kano Emirate into five separate Emirates and appointed emirs to lead each of them.
