Kwankwaso mulls on revisiting Kano emirates controversy

Kwankwaso mulls on revisiting Kano emirates controversy

Former Governor of Kano state, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has affirmed that though no one has spoken to him about the issue of Kano emirates, it  would definitely be revisited.

Prior to the Abdullahi Ganduje adminstration, Kano had one Emir.

However Ganduje split the emirate into five and dethroned the then Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi, who was perceived as a supporter of Kwankwaso.

Following the victory of the New Nigerian Peoples Party in last year’s election, Kwankwaso had said the government of Engr Abba Kabir Yusuf would review the dethronement and balkanisation of the emirate.

Speaking in an interview granted to select radio stations in Kano, the NNPP leader reinstated that the issue of Kano emirates will definitely 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.”

Since the victory of Abba Kabir Yusuf at the Supreme court, calls have intensified for the merging of the emirates to one.

In one video, the mother of Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf was seen praying for the return of Khalifa Sunusi Lamido Sunusi as Emir when the mother of the latter paid her a congratulatory visit.
