Is Sanusi Lamido Sanusi Re-enthrone as Emir of Kano

The Kano Assembly has nullified the Emirates Council Law, resulting in the removal of all positions created under the previous law as outlined in the new legislation.

All positions created by the previous law are no longer valid according to the new legislation. Additionally, all district leaders promoted or assigned under the previous law are required to return to their former roles.

As the time of filling this report there is no evidence that Sanusi Lamido Sanusi will return to the palace as Emir of Kano.

Recall that, Sanusi was ousted from the throne by the former governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, in 2020, citing alleged insubordination to his government.
