Kano governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf announces return of Sanusi as Emir

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano State has announced the reinstatement of Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi as the new Emir of Kano. The governor made the announcement after signing the new emirate council law at Government House, Kano, on Thursday, May 23.


The governor signed the law at exactly 5:10pm alongside his deputy, the Speaker of the State Assembly and other principal officers in the government.


Recall that the state House of Assembly members earlier today May 23 repealed the law used to dethrone Sanusi in March 2022. Read here.

In March 2020, the immediate past governor of the state, Abdullahi Ganduje, deposed Sanusi as Emir of Kano “for total disrespect to lawful instructions from the office of the governor”.
