Governor Yusuf presents appointment letter to Emir Sanusi

Kano State Governor Abba Yusuf on Friday presented Muhammadu Sanusi with a letter of appointment as the 16th Emir of Kano.

The development follows the signing into law of the amended Kano State Emirate Council Law by the governor on Thursday.

The amended law abolished the five emirate councils and sacked the emirs appointed by former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje in 2019, paving the way for Mr Sanusi’s re-enthronement.

While presenting the letter, Mr Yusuf said, “Sanusi is a victim of the immediate past administration, who is now being restored to his rightful position to lead the people.”

Members of the Kano Emirate Council, district heads and title holders graced the ceremony.

It also marked a new chapter in the history of the Kano Emirate with the re-enthronement of Mr Sanusi, who was deposed in 2020 by the Ganduje administration. 

Meanwhile, Justice Mohammed Liman of the Kano Division of the Federal High Court has granted an ex parte order stopping the Kano government from reinstating  Mr Sanusi.
