Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state reportedly offered Emir Sanusi three options
– The governor had on Wednesday, May 8, approved the creation of 4 new emirates in the state
– Sanusi was said to have been told by Ganduje to resign from his position or be sacked by his government
There are indications that an ongoing probe by the Kano state government’s anti-corruption agency could lead to charges being filed against the Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II.
Daily Trust reports that Sanusi’s status as the only first class emir in the state was whittled when the state government broke the emirate, carving out four new emirates and appointing first class emirs to rule them.
