Emirate Saga:Lamido Sanusi, Out of four Kingmakers that we had, three of them were not even qualifiedThe Sun reports that the Kano Emirate’s reinstated Emir, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II, has pointed out serious problems with the current legislation governing the appointment of kingmakers, claiming that it is inaccurately representative of the varied lineage of the families customarily in charge of selecting the Emir.CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>

He explained that the law erroneously narrows down the eligible descendants for the positions of Madaki, Makama, Sarkin Dawaki, and Sarkin Bayi, overlooking the multiple lineages associated with these families in the Kano tradition.

He argued that the current law effectively disqualifies three out of the four kingmakers, as their lineage does not match the families specified in the law, demonstrating a lack of consideration for the region’s rich history and customs.

He said, “And then, the kingmaker families as well. You have different lines in the family. Then you have a law that puts in just one line. Did you know that based on the law that we had, out of the four kingmakers that we had, three of them were not even qualified because they didn’t even understand who are the king-making families? Which families produce the Madaki; descendants of two different people. Makama, descendants of two different people. Sarkin Dawaki; descendants of three or four different people. That is our tradition. It’s only Sarkin Bayi that is made of one person.

But they came and took one, one, one person. The current Madaki is not the descendant of the person they put in the law. The current Makama is not a descendant of the person they put in the law. The current Sarkin Dawaki Metuta is not a descendant of the person they put in the law. So, what they have as a law has already disqualified three out of four kingmakers, because there was no consideration of history.”CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
