The Kano Emirate has witnessed the return of the 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, on Thursday after he was re-instated to the throne four years after former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje deposed and banished him from the state.

Muhammadu Sanusi II’s recall came after Kano State Governor Abba Yusuf assented to the new Emirate Law passed by the Kano House of Assembly yesterday.

The Assembly in the last administration had amended the existing law and approved an increase in the number of first class Emirs to five, a development that led to the deposition of the 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II.

The new law repealed the four additional Emirates – Rano, Karaye, Bichi and Gaya, created by former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, and reverted the emirate to the old order of one emirate system in the state.

The reinstated Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, picked up his appointment letter at the Kano State Government House, on Friday.

The Emir was reinstated after Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf had signed the new emirate council law which removed emirs of Kano, Bichi, Rano, Gaya and Karaye, on Thursday.

Emirt Sanusi arrived at the Kano Government House to officially receive his appointment letter and resume work as the sole first-class Emir of the state.

He arrived Kano late Thursday and a lowkey homecoming reception was organised for him as result of security advice.

Sanusi was dethroned in 2020 by former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje after a personal rift.

Before the dethronement, Ganduje had split Kano emirate into five – Kano, Bichi, Rano, Gaya and Karaye.

The law which the former governor used to remove Sanusi was, however, repealed by Kano House of Assembly on Thursday.
