Breaking News: Governor Yusuf Reinstates Sanusi II as Emir of Kano

In a dramatic turn of events, Kano State Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf has signed the Emirate Repeal Law 2024, dissolving the five Emirate Councils in the state created by his predecessor, Abdullahi Ganduje, in 2019. As a result, the deposed 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has been officially reinstated to the throne.

The development comes after the Kano State House of Assembly repealed the State Emirates Council Law 2019, which established four additional emirates in the state. The repeal of the law has also led to the removal of the current Emirs and district heads, who have been given 48 hours to vacate their palaces and submit all official items to the office of the deputy governor.

Kingmakers in the Kano Emirate have arrived at the Government House to begin the process of selecting a new Emir, while pressure groups have called for a review of the Emirate law to ensure a smooth transition.

Governor Yusuf has appealed for peace and harmony in the state during this transition period, urging citizens to remain calm and law-abiding.

This development marks a significant shift in the political landscape of Kano State, and we will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as more information becomes available.
