BREAKING: Sanusi Lamido Reinstated As Kano Emir.

23 May

Reported by Adediwura and Ayooluwa

Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II has been reinstated as the Emir of Kano, according to a report by LEADERSHIP newspaper.
This decision followed the Kano State House of Assembly’s resolution to dethrone the current Emir and also dismantle the four new Emirates in the State established under a controversial 2019 law.
According to LEADERSHIP, though it was not officially announced, it had it on good authority that Sanusi II had been reinstated, and was expected in Kano on Friday.
The report read: “According to credible inside sources, ‘So certainly with the passage of the Bill, Sanusi automatically stands reinstated. No need for confirmation, the thing to do is wait for the Governor to assent to it.’
“The then restructuring of the Kano Emirate is seen as a political maneuver to diminish the influence of then Emir Sanusi II, a vocal critic of the former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje administration. The creation of the new emirates fragmented the authority of the old Kano Emirate Council, diluting its power and influence.
“Meanwhile, the Majority Leader of the Kano State House of Assembly, Lawan Hussaini Chediyar Yan Gurasa, who sponsored the Amendment Bill, shortly after Thursday’s session, revealed to journalists that, “the bill has been sent to the governor for assent, now there is no longer an active Emir in Kano in all the five Emirates; Kano, Bichi, Gaya, Rano, and Karaye. The law now provides the governor to call on the traditional kingmakers to choose a new king.”
“Our correspondent also reports that all the district heads elevated or appointed under the repealed law are to revert to their previous positions.” [Leadership]
