Sanusi Receives Reinstatement Letter, Turbaned As Emir Of Kano

Muhammadu Sanusi has been turbaned as the new Emir of Kano for the second time.

The ceremony took place on Friday at the Kano state government house.

Traditional rulers, kingmakers, and other dignitaries witnessed the presentation at the Art Chamber of the Kano State Government House.

Governor Yusuf reinstated him right following the signing of the Kano State Emirate Council (Repeal) Bill 2024 into law.

He was reinstated to the throne four years after he was deposed by the government of a former governor of the state Abdullahi Ganduje.

The new law replaces the Kano State Emirates Council Law, 2019, and dissolves the emirate councils created by Ganduje.

That law was used by Ganduje to split the Kano Emirate into five in December 2019 and deposed Sanusi II, on March 9, 2020. The emirates created by the Ganduje administration were Karaye, Bichi, Rano, and Gaya, in addition to Kano.

Emir Sanusi II, a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, was known as Lamido Sanusi before becoming king.
