Kano, Nigeria – In a dramatic turn of events, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II has been reinstated as the Emir of Kano, LEADERSHIP has authoritatively gathered. This decision follows the Kano State House of Assembly’s resolution to dethrone the current Emir and dismantle the four new Emirates established under a controversial 2019 law.

Though an official announcement is yet to be made, credible sources confirm that Sanusi II has been reinstated and is expected to return to Kano on Friday. According to these inside sources, “So certainly with the passage of the Bill, Sanusi automatically stands reinstated. No need for confirmation, the thing to do is wait for the Governor to assent to it.”

The restructuring of the Kano Emirate in 2019 was widely seen as a political maneuver to diminish the influence of then Emir Sanusi II, who was 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 Majority Leader of the Kano State House of Assembly, Lawan Hussaini Chediyar Yan Gurasa, who sponsored the Amendment Bill, revealed to journalists shortly after Thursday’s session, “The bill has been sent to the governor for assent. Now there is no longer an active Emir in Kano in all the five Emirates; Kano, Bichi, Gaya, Rano, and Karaye. The law now provides the governor to call on the traditional kingmakers to choose a new king.”

Reports have it that all the district heads elevated or appointed under the repealed law are to revert to their previous positions.

Stay tuned for further updates as the situation develops.
