 Governor Yusuf issues ultimatum for former emirs to vacate

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano State has given 48 hours to Aminu Ado Bayero and four other former first-class chiefs to vacate the palace.

The Governor also tasked them to hand over all Emirates property to the office of the Deputy Governor. This was contained in a statement issued by the Governor's Spokesperson Sanusi Bature on Thursday.

According to the statement, the Governor made the declaration on Thursday shortly after assenting the newly passed Kano State Emirate, Repeal bill into Law. 

The governor urged the populace in the state to continue supporting his administration in delivering a multitude of infrastructural advancements that will propel Kano to greater heights.

"Everyone should go about his or her normal activities in the state, we have done what we believe is in the best interest of the state and its people.

"I want to inform the good people of Kano that today, we reappointed Sanusi Lamido Aminu Sanusi popularly known as Muhammadu Sanusi the II as the 16th Emir of Kano while the five former emirs are expected to vacate the palaces within 48 hours"

“The former emirs are to hand over all properties in their possession to the Commissioner for Local Government who doubles as the state Deputy Governor,” the statement added.

Recall that Governor Yusuf had earlier signed the bill into law in the presence of deputy governor Comrade Aminu Abdulsalam, the Speaker of Kano State Assembly Right Hon. Ismail Falgore, and other top government functionaries.

While signing into law, the governor expressed satisfaction that the new law will bring unity to the people of Kano and foster sustainable socio-economic development.
