Barely hours after the removal of Muhammadu Sanusi II as the emir of Kano, the government of Abdullahi Ganduje in the state announced Emir of Bichi Aminu Ado Bayero as the new emir of Kano.
The Secretary to the State Government, Usman Alhaji, made the announcement a few hours after Muhammadu Sanusi II was removed from the throne.
Alhaji further announced that the appointment of Aminu Ado Bayero takes immediate effect.
Alhaji who earlier announced the dethronement of Sanusi said the former emir was removed because of his disrespect for lawful instructions from the office of the Governor of the state.
Alhaji said, “We are removing him for his disrespect for lawful instructions from the office of the Governor and lawful authorities including his persistent refusal to attend official meetings and programmes organized by the government without any lawful justification which amount to total insubordination”.
” It is on record and in so many instances Malam Muhammadu 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 the Kano Emirate ”
“This removal is made after due consultations 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 and tradition religion and prestige of the Kano Emirate built over a thousand years.”
