Gov. Ganduje receives request to dethrone Emir Sanusi .
Governor Ganduje of Kano State has revealed that he has received a letter from 35 civil society organisations calling for the immediate dethronement of the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, for disobedience to constituted authority.
The governor’s spokesperson, Abba Anwar, in a statement on Thursday said the CSOs are concerned that Mr Sanusi is making efforts to create a state within a state.
The letter entitled “Kano State Emirate Council Law, 2019: Demand Letter” reads in part“That the action of the Emir of Kano Malam Muhammadu Sanusi II of continued undermining the constituted authority of the government of Kano State and its organs, is not only unconstitutional, but is an effort to create a state within a state. Which no responsible leadership will tolerate and allow to remain unabated.
If the Emir of Kano fails to submit to the authority of the government of Kano State, we call on the Governor of Kano State on a strongest term, to act strictly in accordance with the provision of Kano Emirate Council Law 2019 in order to heed the state forward.”
They concluded that, they hope their demands and recommendations get governor’s attention, noting and further necessary action, as provided by the Law establishing all the 4 Emirates in the state.
