The curtain has finally fallen for former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Sunusi Lamido Sunusi as his life time ambition of holding the throne of the Kano Emirate has been caught short.
He has been dethroned through unanimous decision of Kano state Executive Council.
Addressing journalists at Kano Government House on Monday, Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Usman Alhaji said Emir Sunusi’s dethronement was as a result of unanimous decision taken by Kano State Executive Council.
The SSG said the Emir’s removal from office was officially endorsed by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.
According to Alhaji Usman Alhaji, “the Kano state Executive Council under the Chairmanship of His Excellency, the Governor of Kano State, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje (OFR) has unanimously approved the immediate removal/dethronement of the Emir of Kano Emirate, Muhammad Sunusi 11.
“The Emir of Kano is in total disrespect to lawful instructions from the office of the state Governor and other lawful authorities, including his persistent refusal to attend official meetings and programmes organized by the Government without any lawful justification which amount to total insubordination.
“It is on record and in so many instances, Malam Muhammad Sunusi 11 has been found breaching part 3 Section 13 (a–e) of the Kano State Emirate Law 2019 and which if left unchecked will destroy the good and established image of the Kano Emirate.
“This removal is made after due consultations with the relevant stakeholders and in compliance with part 3 Section 13 of the Kano State Emirate Law 2019 and other reasons stated above.
“The removal was reached in order to safeguei the sanctity, culture, tradition, religion and prestige of the Kano Emirate built over a thousand years.
“His Excellency, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje (OFR) calls on the general public to remain calm, law abiding and to go about their normal business, while a new Emir of Kano Emirate will soon be appointed.”
