The 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, is back on the throne, following the amendment of the Kano State Emirate amendment and Deposition Law by the House of Assembly.

Sanusi, who fell out with ex-Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano, was dethroned in 2020.

Ahead of his deposition, the Kano State Emirs (Appointment and Deposition) Law was promulgated by the Ganduje administration in 2019, and four additional emirates were created – Rano, Karaye, Gaya, Bichi.

According to a copy of the repealed bill; “All offices created in the newly created five Emirates under the repealed principal law, dated 5th December, 2019 are hereby abrogated. All appointments made under the said repealed Principal Law dated 5th December, 2019 are hereby set aside.”

Governor Abba Yusuf has signed the bill into law, on Thursday.

“Emir Sanusi is currently preparing for his return to the throne. Although he is not in town at the moment, we are expecting his return on Friday,” One of the sources said.

Sanusi was in Rivers State earlier today and left after making an opening remark.

Meanwhile, Emir Aminu Ado Bayero, who succeeded Sanusi, is said to be currently out of town.

Aminu Bayero had paid a courtesy call on Oba Sikiru Adetona, Awujale of Ijebuland, on Wednesday.

Bayero alongside his retinue of aides and chiefs visited the Awujale in Ijebu-Ode to felicitate with the first-class traditional ruler on his 90th birthday celebration and 64th year on the throne.

While in Ijebu, he had said, “Awujale is someone who has been at par with my forefathers for 64 years and I am privileged to still have people like him around at 90.

“He is a real gem who is a close associate of my late father and that is why I call him my Father as well. So coming here to greet him and get his blessings is something I will appreciate till the end of time. It is a good experience for me.”

Meanwhile, Nasiru Ado Bayero, Emir of Bichi, who is the younger brother of Kano Emir, is also said to be out of Kano.

Report says the monarch had flown abroad. This claim could not be authenticated at the time of filing this report.

Also the whereabouts of the Emirs of Rano, Karaye and Gaya could not be established at the time of filing this report.
