JUST IN: Kano incoming governor may re-enthrone Sanusi

Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, leader of the Kwankwasiyya Movement, has said that the incoming government in Kano will review the ousting of Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi as Emir.

Sanusi, who became the 14th emir in the final term of Kwankwaso as governor, was dethroned by outgoing Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, the deputy governor at the time Sanusi was enthroned.

Sanusi was removed on 9th March, 2020, and also banished from Kano. He was sent to Loko, a remote community in Nasarawa State, the expenses of the emirate under him being probed.

Ganduje had further disintegrated the emirate into five and appointed emirs who were at par.

But speaking in a viral video, Kwankwaso said the dethronement and division of the emirate would be reviewed by the government of Abba Kabir Yusuf (popularly known as Abba Gida-Gida), the Governor-elect.

The 2023 NNPC Presidential candidate said, “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.”

He further prayed for the smooth running of the incoming administration.
