Read as Kano state governor Ganduje gives emir Sanusi 2 days Ultimatum to reply letter


Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State, on Friday wrote to the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, to respond to a letter earlier appointing him as the head of the council of chiefs in Kano State.

that his Highness, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi 11 should respond by indicating his acceptance of the letter or Otherwise. The letter which was signed by the permanent secretary, special duties in Kano, Musa Bichi, requested that the emir should respond in 3l2 days to indicate his acceptance or rejection of the said appointment.

Premium time reported how Mr Ganduje appointed Mr Sanusi as head of the council of chiefs. He also ordered Mr Sanusi to immediately summon the inaugural meeting of the council in accordance with the provisions of the Law.

The state government explained that the headship of the council of chiefs would be rotational among the now five first class emirs in the state.

Many believe the governor’s appointment of Mr Sanusi as head
of the council of chiefs was a poisoned chalice as Mr Sanusi is
opposed to the creation of the four new emirates. Also, the governor’s
directive that the Kano emir calls a meeting of the council of chiefs
was seen as a prelude to possible disciplinary actions against Mr
Sanusi should he refuse to hold the meeting.

Before his recent creation of four new emirates and appointment of emirs for them, the emir of Kano was the only first-class emir in the state.
