JUST IN: Sanusi II, Former CBN Governor Reinstated as Emir of Kano State.

Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II, Former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor has been reinstated as the Emir of Kano. This decision followed the Kano State House of Assembly’s resolution to dethrone the current Emir and also dismantle the four new Emirates in the State established under a controversial 2019 law.

Although it has not been officially announced, Sanusi II has been reinstated and is expected in Kano by Friday. According to a very reliable sources, “So certainly with the passage of the Bill, Sanusi II automatically stands reinstated. No need for confirmation, just wait for the Governor to assent to it.” The then reconstruction of the Kano Emirate is seen as a political manoeuvre to diminish the influence of the then Emir Sanusi II, a vocal critic of Abdullahi Ganduje administration, the former Governor of Kano State.

The construction of the new emirates fragmented the authority of the old Kano Emirate Council, diluting its power and influence.
