Kwankwaso Promises to Revisit Sanusi's Dethronement and Kano Emirate Restructuring

Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, the leader of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) and the successor to former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, has reaffirmed his commitment to looking into the controversial matters surrounding the overthrow of Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi, the former emir of Kano, and the subsequent reorganization of the Kano emirate, DAILY TRUST reported.

The NNPP leader, who played a pivotal role in the political landscape of Kano State, declared in an interview with select radio stations in Kano that these matters would be thoroughly examined and addressed during his tenure.

Ganduje, during his tenure, had implemented a controversial decision to split the historic Kano emirate into five, a move widely criticized by many, including Senator Kwankwaso.

Following the NNPP’s victory in last year’s election, Kwankwaso has consistently hinted at a review of these actions, and now he reaffirms his commitment to reopening the discussion on the Kano emirate issue.

In the interview, Kwankwaso stated, “Honestly, it is one of the things that nobody has sat with me to discuss so far, but I am sure we are going to sit and see how to go about it. Is it going to be allowed, demolished, corrected, or whatever? It will be revisited; what’s supposed to be done will be done.”

He emphasized that the previous actions were taken without due consultation and with questionable intentions.

The issue of the Kano emirate became a central point of contention during the tenure of Governor Ganduje, especially with the dethronement of Emir Sanusi.

The restructuring of the emirate sparked public outcry and debate, with many questioning the legality and wisdom of such a move.

After the Supreme Court upheld the victory of Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, calls for the reinstatement of Emir Sanusi gained momentum.

However, Sanusi himself, in response to comments made by Nasir Gawuna, the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), expressed gratitude to Allah and the people of Kano for their support.

Sanusi, without directly commenting on his possible reinstatement, alluded to the attempted power seizure through the court process.

“We thank Allah, the Almighty, and congratulate the people of Kano State. During our last session, we prayed and admonished the judges to do what is right. At last, God has given the people of Kano State what they voted for,” Sanusi said. CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
