KANO- Emir Sanusi Faces More Hurdles, As Governor Offers Him Options
The creation of additional emirates in Kano State on Wednesday may not be the last turbulence coming the way of the Emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi II, as an ongoing probe by the state government’s anti-corruption agency could lead to charges being filed against the monarch.
Sanusi’s status as the only first class emir in the state was whittled when the state government created additional emirates, by carving out four new emirates and appointing first class emirs to rule over them.
The fresh investigation by the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission as well as the bid to appoint new first class emirs by the state assembly kick-started almost simultaneously last week.
The commission is probing alleged financial misappropriation by the emir and the emir may be ask to defend himself when the commission transfer the case to court.
Report says that the Emir has reached out to the state government having sense trouble at the turn of events between the state government through business tycoon, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, to beg the governor to have a change of mind.
It was gathered that Governr Ganduje told Dangote to go back and tell the emir that he should choose from three alternatives:
To resign on his own or be removed from office or the government will create additional emirates in the state.
Ganduje went further that one of the three options must be implemented by government since.
Also, the emir may be transfer to another emirate and replace him with one of the newly appointed emirs,
after their turbaning ceremony.
