KANO: Sanusi may be reinstated as Emir as NNPP govt revisits emirates saga



Former Governor of Kano State and the leader of the Kwankwasiyya Movement, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has said that the issue of Kano emirates will be revisited.

Former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje had split the Kano emirate into five and dethroned the then Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi.

Following the victory of the New Nigerian Peoples Party, NNPP, in last year’s election, Kwankwaso had said the government of Abba Kabir Yusuf would review Sanusi’s dethronement and the balkanisation of the emirate.

Speaking in an interview with newsmen in Kano on Friday, Kwankwaso restated that the issue of Kano emirates will definitely be revisited.

“Honestly it is one of the things that nobody has sat with me to discuss so far but I am sure we are going to sit and see how to go about it. Is it going to be allowed, demolished, corrected or whatever? It will be revisited, what’s supposed to be done will be done.

“There were a lot of things and this was a trap. All these things were not done in good faith or intention. It was brought with some bad intentions which everyone of you here and our listeners are aware of.

“Sometimes you come with things that are good and they turn out to be bad while sometimes you bring things that are bad and they turn out to be good. So, all I know is that I was not consulted as of now but definitely we will come to discuss and see what should be done.”

It has been observed that since the Supreme Court validated Governor Abba Yusuf’s election, there has been intensified calls for Sanusi’s reinstatement.
