Kano Emirate Crisis: Court Adjourns Kano's Emirate Hearing To July 4

The Supreme Leader of the Tijjaniyya Islamic Movement, Mahi Nyass, has advised Lamido Sanusi to follow the steps of his grandfather by rejecting the reinstatement offer as the Emir of Kano.

The Islamic sect, in a letter dated 3rd June and made available to Daily Trust Newspaper, urged Mr Sanusi to reject his reinstatement and follow the example of his grandfather, Muhammadu Sanusi, who reportedly turned down an offer for his reinstatement after being similarly dethroned.

“The reinstatement of Khalifa Muhammad Sanusi II as Emir of Kano by the Kano State Government under the leadership of His Excellency, Executive Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, has raised concerns about the rule of law and the welfare of the citizenry.

“We draw inspiration from the exemplary leadership of (the) late Khalifa Muhammad Sanusi, who refused to be swayed by personal interests and declined reinstatement after his dethronement. We therefore urge Khalifa Muhammad Sanusi to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps and prioritise the peace and stability of Kano.

“Also, kindly call on all to put the people’s interest first and work towards a peaceful resolution that is legally accepted. We pray for the divine guidance and wisdom for our leaders to reign in Kano State and Nigeria,” the letter stated.

Sanusi, who is the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, was reinstated as the Emir of Kano in late May after the state government amended the emirate law, scrapping four of the five emirates in the states and deposed Aminu-Bayero as the Emir.

Ado-Bayero has challenged his removal in court and has occupied the mini palace of the Emir, defying directives by the state government.
