BREAKING – Sanusi II maybe Reinstated As Kano Emir Friday

Written by on May 23, 2024

Kanu Assembly has desolved the four new Emirates created by former governor of the state, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje. Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II may be reinstated as the Emir of Kano.


This decision followed the Kano State House of Assembly’s resolution to dethrone the current Emir and also dismantle the four new Emirates in the State established under a controversial 2019 law.


According to the Kano State Emirate Repeal bill 2024, no 4. “All traditional office holders and title holders elevated or appointed to office created under the repealed principal law, dated 5th December 2019 shall revert to their position where such positions previously existed under recognized custom and traditions prior to the enactment of the repealed principal law dated 5th December 2019″


no 5. ” The governor shall take all necessary measures to restore the status of the Kano Emirate System to its positions prior to the enactment of the repealed principal law dated 5th December, 2019″.


The above bill however, brings the probability of Sanusi II has been reinstated. Though it has not been officially announced,  and is expected in Kano on Friday.


According to credible inside sources, “So certainly with the passage of the Bill, Sanusi automatically stands reinstated. No need for confirmation, the thing to is wait for the Governor to assent to it.”


The then restructuring of the Kano Emirate is seen as a political manoeuvre to diminish the influence of then Emir Sanusi II, a vocal critic of the former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje administration. The creation of the new emirates fragmented the authority of the old Kano Emirate Council, diluting its power and influence.


Meanwhile, the Majority Leader of the Kano State House of Assembly, Lawan Hussaini Chediyar Yan Gurasa, who sponsored the Amendment Bill, shortly after Thursday’s session, revealed to journalists that, “the bill has been sent to the governor for assent, now there is no longer an active Emir in Kano in all the five Emirates; Kano, Bichi, Gaya, Rano and Karaye. The law now provides the governor to call on the traditional kingmakers to choose a new king.”
