Sanusi’s reinstatement as Emir of Kano sparks fears of conflict, division



Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II

A sociopolitical group in Nigeria, The New Kano Development Agenda (NKDA), has strongly condemned the reinstatement of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II as the Emir of Kano, describing it as political manipulation and a threat to unity and progress in Kano State and Nigeria.

The group, in a statement signed by its leader, Alhaji Shehu Gambo, criticized Governor Abba Yusuf’s administration and the state House of Assembly for dissolving five Emirates Council in the state, calling them “vagabonds” and “economic terrorists” who mean no good for Kano and Nigeria.

Gambo described the move as “reckless and divisive”, saying it “undermines the progress and stability of the state” and is a clear example of political manipulation and disregard for the rule of law and justice. He warned that Sanusi’s reinstatement may further polarize and divide the people of Kano, worsening existing tensions and conflicts and undermining traditional institutions.

The NKDA leader noted that the dissolution of the Kano Emirates, established in 2019 to promote decentralization and grassroots development, is a reversal of progress and a return to centralized power, which has significant political implications and threatens national unity. He also warned that the concentration of power in the hands of a single monarch is a recipe for economic stagnation and underdevelopment.

Gambo’s statement reads in part: “The recent dissolution of the Kano Emirates and the reinstatement of Emir Sanusi has sparked a political crisis in Kano State. This move has far-reaching implications that threaten the unity and progress of the state, and indeed, the country as a whole.”
