Kano: ‘I Don’t Regret Deposing Sanusi’ – Ganduje

Kano: Why I Was Told To Dethrone Emir Sanusi - Ganduje

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has noted that he does not regret his decision to dethrone the former Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II.

Ganduje while speaking at a media forum to celebrate Democracy Day, revealed that the creation of four additional emirates in the state is one of his major achievements.

He added that the creation of the other emirates has impacted positively the lives of people in the state and has brought development to the state.

The Kano State Governor further stated that Sanusi lost his position as the Emir of Kano, due to his refusal to be part of the reforms in the traditional system, which was conceived in the best interest of Kano people.

He said, “The former Emir of Kano, who refused to be part of the reforms, had to bow out so that the reforms could be completed and the new emirates have come to stay.”

He also agreed that some legal issues instituted by Sanusi and some Kano elders loyal to him slowed down the speed at which the traditional reforms would have been concluded.

“But today, there is no legal issues before the court as regards the reforms of the traditional system.”

Ganduje who spoke on the alleged #2.2bn land scam involving the former Central Bank Governor said since the court had cleared the way for investigation, the state anti-corruption agency will continue investigating the former emir according to the law.

The Kano Governor while commenting on his recent call on the Federal Government to ban foreign herdsmen from entering the country, noted that he hopes the Federal Government would see reasons soon and do the needful.
