NBA Recognises Sanusi as Emir of Kano, Amid Ongoing Tussle



Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II

The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has officially recognised Muhammadu Sanusi II as the rightful Emir of Kano, amidst the lingering tussle for the throne of the Kano emirate.

This recognition comes as a significant boost to Sanusi’s claim to the throne, which has been disputed by Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero.

The NBA’s recognition of Sanusi as the 16th Emir of Kano was evident at their ongoing annual conference in Kano, where Sanusi was invited to attend and address the participants. The conference, which is the first of its kind in the northern region, has brought together legal luminaries from across the country, including the President of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria, Hon. Justice Benedict Bakwaph Kanyip, and the NBA President, Yakubu Maikyau, SAN.

In his address to the conference, Sanusi, who was represented by the Walin Kano, Mahe Bashir Wali, welcomed the participants and highlighted Kano’s rich history as a cultural and commercial hub in the northern region. He also emphasized the importance of justice in society, stating that peace and progress can only be achieved when there is justice in the land.

The recognition of Sanusi by the NBA is significant, given the ongoing legal battle over the Kano emirate tussle. The case, which was scheduled to be heard at the federal high court on June 4, was stalled due to the strike action by organised Labour unions.

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, who was represented at the conference by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Abdullahi Bappa Bichi, called on lawyers to uphold the rule of law and make comprehensive judicial reforms to address the challenges facing the administration of justice in Nigeria.

Speaking to journalists on the emirate tussle, Barr O.M Femi, a legal practitioner, stated that the NBA’s recognition of Sanusi as the Emir of Kano is a clear indication of the legal community’s stance on the matter. He noted that the court’s decision on the case will set a precedent for future legal battles and urged all parties involved to respect the rule of law.

The recognition of Sanusi by the NBA has further solidified his position as the rightful Emir of Kano, despite the ongoing legal challenges. The case continues to be a subject of interest in the legal community, with many eagerly awaiting the court’s decision on the matter.
