Ganduje dethrones Kano’s Emir Sanusi

Sanusi tells how police, DSS, others manhandled him

 

The Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has announced the dethronment of the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II.

Kano state Director-General, Media and Communications, Salihu Yakasai, made this known on Monday on his official Twitter handle, @Dawisu.

“The Kano State Executive Council has unanimously approved the dethronement of the Emir of Kamo Mallam Muhammad Sanusi II at a special sitting held today by the council,” he tweeted.

In a statement following the dethronement, the Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Usman Alhaji,  said, “This removal is made after due consultation with the relevant stakeholders and in compliance with Part 3 section 13 of the Kano State Emirate law 2019 and other reasons stated above.

“The removal was reached to safeguard the sanctity, culture, tradition, religion and prestige of the Kano Emirate built over a thousand years.”

Sanusi mounted the throne in 2014, after the death of his granduncle Ado Bayero. His grandfather Muhammadu Sanusi I was deposed by Premier Ahmadu Bello after reigning from 1953 to 1963. His father Aminu Sanusi was Ciroma of Kano.

Prior to his coronation, Sanusi, an economist and banker served as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria from 2009 to 2014. He was suspended by President Goodluck Jonathan after raising the alarm over an allegedly missing $20 billion.

I must say you have done a very good job with this. Also, the blog loads super fast for me on Chrome. Excellent Blog!|
