Kano Emir, Sanusi Lamido Suffers Election-Fallout

It would appear that the fall-out from the 2019 General elections is continuing its reverberations.

In Kano State, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has signed the Kano State Emirs (Appointment and Deposition) law 2019, which whittles down the geographic powers of the Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi. The law has now split the Kano Emirate Council into five. The four new Councils created out of the Kano Emirate Council are Rano, Gaya, Karaye and Bichi. According to the Governor, the split of the Kano Emirate Council is to bring development closer to the people in the Government’s efforts to take the State to the next level. The split of the Council into five, of course creates additional financial burden on the Government and the people of the State. The additional four Councils will require a replication of office buildings, secretariat and staff, which will all be funded from the State coffers. Not wanting to stop there, the State Government has resuscitated an old probe of the management of the finances of the Kano Emirate Council. This probe had earlier been suspended because of allegations of witch hunt targeted at Emir Sanusi two years ago. It would appear that the probe could be aimed at completing the unfinished business of getting back at Emir Sanusi for his alleged harsh criticism of Government. It will be recalled that in 1982, when the civilian Government of Alhaji Abubakar Rimi issued a query to Kano Emir Ado Bayero, the consequences were tragic as seven people were killed during widespread protest and violence in Kano.

Despite a Court order, Governor Ganduje proceeded to swear in four additional Emirs appointed by him. The Kano State High Court had on Friday, 9th May 2019, issued an order restraining the Governor from proceeding with the appointment of Emirs. Claiming ignorance of the Court order, the Governor presented appointment letters to the said Emirs on Saturday, 10th May 2019.
