Sanusi removed as Emir of Kano, banished to Nasarawa, new Emir emerges

Sanusi was on Monday removed as the Emir of Kano by the governor of Kano state, Umar Ganduje and immediately replaced by the son of the former Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado.

The announcement was made by the secretary to the state government, Usman Alhaji, at the State Executive Council meeting held at the Government House in Kano. 

Alhaji noted that the removal was with immediate effect explaining that the state government took the decision to remove him over allegations of consistently refusing to abide by instructions and the rules and regulations of the state.

The council presided over by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, accused Sanusi of persistent refusal to attend official meetings and programmes organised by the government without any lawful justification which amounts to total insubordination.

The removal of Sanusi was reached in order to safeguard the sanctity, culture, tradition, religion and prestige of the Kano Emirate built over a thousand years ago, Alhaji said.
It is on record and in so many instances Malam Muhammadu Sanusi II, has been found breaching part 3 section 13 (a-e) of the Kano state emirate law 2019 and which if left unchecked will destroy the good and established image of Kano emirate.
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 government has called on Kano residents to remain calm, abide by the laws while embarking on their normal business.

Hours, after Sanusa's removal, Alhaji Aminu Ado was announced as the new emir of Kano by Alhaji Usman Alhaji.

Alhaji said the appointment was in line with the provision of Kano state Emirate Council Law 2019. 

Section 11 (1) of the Law has empowered the governor to appointment Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero as the emir of Kano, he said.

Alhaji noted that the four kingmakers of Kano emirate had earlier recommended the appointment of Aminu Ado Bayero as the emir of Kano.

Bayero is the 15th emir of Fulani. Until his appointment as emir of Kano, Bayero was the emir of Bichi, one of the four newly created emirates. Bayero is a graduate of Mass Communication from Bayero University Kano. He was also a former Danmajen Kano, Dan Buran, Sarkin Dawakin Tsakar Gida and Wamban Kano. He was later appointed emir of Bichi after the creation of Karaye, Gaya, Rano and Bichi Emirates by the present administration.
