Rabiu Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), has announced that the incoming government in Kano will revisit the dethronement of Muhammadu Sanusi, the 14th emir of Kano.
Sanusi was deposed by Abdullahi Ganduje, the outgoing governor of Kano, in 2020 over allegations of insubordination. Kwankwaso expressed confidence in Abba Kabir Yusuf, the governor-elect of Kano, and his ability to tackle the challenges in the state.
In a viral video posted on social media, Kwankwaso spoke about his faith in Yusuf and his team’s ability to pick up where they left off. He also stated that the opportunity to revisit Sanusi’s dethronement has presented itself, and he will advise the incoming government as an elder. He further noted that the emirates in Kano have now been divided into five and that everything will be reviewed.
Kwankwaso said that when a leader comes into power, whether in a country, state, or local government area, they inherit good and challenging things. He expressed his confidence that the new governor would be wise enough to resolve the challenges planted in Kano state so that everyone can live peacefully.
As elders in the movement, Kwankwaso stated that they would continue to advise the new government to do the right things.
