Sanusi Remains Emir, says Kano Govt

The Kano State government has said the ruling delivered by a Federal High Court presided over by Justice Abdullahi Muhammad Liman, earlier on Thursday, shows Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II is still the Emir of Kano.

Making the statement during a press conference held at the Government House on Thursday evening, the State Attorney General and Commissioner for justice, Barrister Haruna Isah Dederi, said the ruling of the Court has unequivocally reaffirmed the validity of the law passed by Kano State House of Assembly and assented to by Governor Yusuf of Kano State on Thursday 23rd May this year.

He also said the ruling further implies that all actions done by the Government before the emergence of the interim order of the honourable Court, are equally validated.

He added that the abolition of the Five emirates created in 2019 is validated and the deposition of the Five emirs is also sustained by the Federal High Court. According to him, this, by implication, means that Muhammadu Sanusi II remains the emir of Kano.
