Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the leader of the Kwankwasiyya movement in Kano State has stated that the issue of Kano emirates will definitely be revisited.
Former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje had divided the Kano emirate into five parts and removed the then Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi.
In the wake of the New Nigerian Peoples Party’s success in last year’s election, the leader of NNPP stated that the government of Engr Abba Kabir Yusuf would reassess the dethronement and fragmentation of the emirate.
In an interview with select radio stations in Kano, Kwankwaso reiterated that the matter of the Kano emirates would indeed be revisited.
“Honestly it is one of the things that nobody has sat with me to discuss so far but I am sure we are going to sit and see how to go about it. Is it going to be allowed, demolished, corrected or whatever? It will be revisited, what’s supposed to be done will be done.
“There were a lot of things and this was a trap. All these things were not done in good faith or intention. It was brought with some bad intentions which everyone of you here and our listeners are aware of.
“Sometimes you come with things that are good and they turn out to be bad while sometimes you bring things that are bad and they turn out to be good. So, all I know is that I was not consulted as of now but definitely we will come to discuss and see what should be done.”
Recall that after the Supreme Court validated the victory of Governor Yusuf, there were intensified calls for the reinstatement of Sanusi.
Sanusi, on his part has not directly commented on the issue of his reinstatement. He had accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano of attempting to seize power through a court process not knowing God was waiting.
