BREAKING: Ex-CBN Governor, Sanusi Re-ethrones Emir Of Kano

Lucky Obukohwo, Reporting

The former Central Bank of Nigeria(CBN) Governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II has been Re-ethroned as the Emir of Kano.

It was said that his reinstatement followed the Kano State House of Assembly’s sacking of his successor and four other emirs and outright dissolution of the emirate kingdoms created by the last administration, in the wake of Sanusi’s dethronement.

By its declaration, the assembly also sacked Sanusi’s successor, Emir Bayero.

Although the announcement has not been made officially, sources in the know said that the action of the state government, as interpreted by the assembly, may not be unconnected to the controversies surrounding the dismantling of erstwhile existing Emirates and sacking of Sanusi who was subsequently banished from Kano.

“So certainly with the passage of the Bill, Sanusi automatically stands reinstated. No need for confirmation, the thing to is wait for the Governor to assent to it,” an inside source disclosed.

“The then restructuring of the Kano Emirate is seen as a political manoeuvre to diminish the influence of then Emir Sanusi II, a vocal critic of the former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje administration. The creation of the new emirates fragmented the authority of the old Kano Emirate Council, diluting its power and influence,” the source added.
