Governor Yusuf Threatens To Report Justice Liman To Governors’ Forum …Says The Judge Ruled Against Sanusi’s Reinstatement From US

Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State has threatened to report the judge who ruled to stop the reinstatement of Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Emir of Kano to the Governor’s Forum.

Yusuf, who spoke during the reistatement of Emir Lamido Sanusi on Friday in Kano said Justice AM Liman who gave the controversial judgment did so from the US.

He added that he was surprised by the ruling because the state followed due process only to discover that the judge was in the US.

Sanusi was reinstated yesterday four years after his dethronment.

The reinstallation followed Governor Yusuf’s signing of the Kano State Emirate Council (Repeal) Bill 2024 into law, reports Channels TV.

In the wake of the development, a Federal High Court in Kano issued an ex-parte order preventing the governor from reinstating Sanusi II.

But during the presentation of the appointment letter to Sanusi today, the Kano State governor spoke in Hausa about the court order stopping him from dissolving the Kano Emirates created by the previous administration.

According to him, the judge who was out of the country had no right to stop what the state assembly had done using due process.
