Kano Government, Emir Sanusi At ‘War’


Kano State House of Assembly, yesterday, constituted an eight-man committee to investigate allegations levelled against the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II.

This came on a day Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, called on the Emir and Kano State government to respect the decisions taken by the Northern Governors Forum to resolve the crisis between them.

Speaker of the 40-man Assembly, Kabiru Alhassan Rurum, who presided over the sitting, constituted the panel following a point of order by a member representing Nasarawa constituency, Mr Ibrahim
Ahmad Gama.

The lawmakers alleged that Sanusi had been spreading false information on the trip of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje to China, recently.

The governor and some state officials had travelled to China, in view of the proposed light rail transport system in the state.

The Assembly accused the emir of attacking the policies of the Federal Government under President Muhammadu Buhari.

It also alleged that the emirate under the leadership of Muhammadu Sanusi II spent funds without the approval of the governor and the Assembly.

Other alleged wrongdoing by the emir, according to the Assembly, include sending his daughter to represent him in a function without dressing in full cultural regalia.

At press time, the emir is yet to respond to the latest affront from the lawmakers.
