Kano Governor, Abba Yusuf, dethrones Ado Bayero, Re-enthrones Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as Emir of Kano

In a surprise move, Kano State Governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf, has announced the reinstatement of Muhammad Sanusi II as the 16th Emir of Kano. 

This decision effectively dethrones Ado Bayero, who had been occupying the position since Sanusi’s removal in 2020.

Governor Yusuf made the announcement official, stating, “I have approved the reappointment of Khalipha Muhammadu Sanusi II as the emir of Kano.” This move marks a significant development in the political landscape of Kano State and is likely to have far-reaching implications.

Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, a prominent figure in Nigerian politics and a member of the Dabo dynasty, was first appointed as Emir of Kano in 2014. However, his tenure was cut short when he was removed from office in 2020 by the previous administration.

The reinstatement of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as Emir of Kano is seen as a significant victory for his supporters and a testament to his enduring influence in the state.

As the news of Sanusi’s reinstatement spreads, many are eagerly awaiting the reactions of key stakeholders and the potential impact on the state’s political landscape. One thing is certain, however – this move marks a new chapter in the history of Kano State and the Emir of Kano.
