More details why the government of The Kano State under Abdullahi Ganduje dethroned the Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi II have been revealed.

The government stated that Sanusi was dethroned over alleged insubordination, refusal to attend official meetings and breach of Kano Emirate Law.

Thsi was made known in a press statement signed by Secretary to the State Government, Usman Alhaji, announcing the removal of Sanusi.

Before the announcement on Monday, members of the Kano House of Assembly had engaged in a free-for-all over an attempt to remove the Emir.

The statement noted that Sanusi’s removal was a unanimous decision of members of the State Executive Council.

The statement read, “The Kano State Executive Council under the Chairmanship of his Excellency, the Governor of Kano State, Dr Abdullahi GAnduje, has unanimously approved the immediate removal/dethronement of the Emir of Kano Emirate Muhammad Sanusi II.

“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 organised by the Government without any lawful justification which amounts to total insubordination.

“It is on record and in so many instances Malam Muhammad Sanusi II 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 Kano Emirate.

 

“This removal is made after due consultation 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 safeguard the sanctity, culture, tradition, religion, and prestige of the Kano Emirate built over a thousand years.”

The governor subsequently called on the public to remain calm, law-abiding and to go about their normal businesses.

“A new Emir of Kano will soon be appointed,” the statement added.
