Recently, the presidential candidate of the ANPP and former governor of the state, Mr. Ibrahim Kwankwaso, said the new government would revisit the dethronement of Muhammadu Sanusi.
In a viral video posted on the social media, Kwankwaso said he is confident Yusuf would have the wisdom to resolve “challenges” in the state.
“We campaigned and we are well-known in Nigeria, especially in Kano. What we showed the people is by God’s grace all the good projects we started when we were in government. This governor (Abba Kabir Yusuf) and his team will pick up from where we left off,”
“We tried not to talk about whether the Emir would be removed or not, but now you see, the opportunity is there.
“Those who God made leaders will now decide on the next step and decision to take. They will review it and determine what is the right thing to be done.
“Apart from the issue of changing the emir, the emirates have now been divided into five. All of that will be reviewed too. When a leader comes into power whether in a country, state or local government area, he inherits things that are good and things that are difficult and challenging.
“We are confident God will give the governor (Abba Kabir Yusuf) the wisdom to come and resolve the challenges planted in Kano state so that everyone will leave peacefully in Kano state,” he said.
