The peak of the fued between the Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje and its Emir, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi (Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II) was reached after the governor dethroned the highly revered tradition ruler on Monday 9.

Firstly, it has been said by many that the Emir failed to show any form of support to the Governor's party (APC) during and after his election. The Emir also failed to attend the governor’s inauguration when he was sworn into office for a second term.

According to reports, trouble started when the Emir (and former Governor of Nigeria's Central Bank) publicly exposed the ills of the All Progressive Congress' (APC's) Governor within the state. He stated that a lack of educational facilities presented a major problem in the state and the state government had failed in this regard.

Below is a video of his statements that fueled his dethronement.

The state governor who acted on the investigations, reports and recommendations of the Public Complaint and Anti-graft Commission set up an investigation into an alleged misconduct of the sitting Emir which eventually led to his dethronement.

In addition, the governor received a petition from about 31 members of the Civil Society Group in Kano State. They alleged that the Emir had sold the emirate land to a sum of N2 billion.

Below is the breakdown of the various financial accusations against Emir Sanusi II:

  1. The anti-graft commission disclosed that the Kano Emirate council under Muhammadu Sanusi II expended about N117 million for fueling generator plants between 2014 to 2017. To this end, N43 million was spent in 2014, N39 million in 2015, N22 million in 2016 and N12 million in 2017.

  2. The emirate council under Muhammadu Sanusi II spent about N54 million on airtime and data In subscription to Airtel Network Ltd mostly on personal phone numbers between the period of 2014 to 2017.

  3. N105 million was sent from the Emirate Council’s account to an individual account in the name of one Engr. Sanusi Tijani at United Bank for Africa (UBA), between 2014 to 2017.

  4. From 2014 to 2017, N144,362,381 was spent on hotel accommodation bills, payment of chartered Aircraft and payment of air tickets by the Kano State Emirate Council under the Emir chairmanship.

Governor Ganduje and Emir Sanusi

In addition to the above accusations, the Emir was said to have shown insubordination, disregard to lawful authorities, refusal to attend official meetings and breach of Kano State Emirate Law.

According to the state governor, the decision to dethrone Sanusi was made in the interest of the people. This was also done to save the Emirate from total collapse; and to finally end the embezzlement of tax-payer money.

Below are Governor Ganduje words to support Emir Sanusi's dethronement:

It is on record that in so many instances, Malam Muhammad Sanusi II has been found breaching part 3 section 13(a-e) of the Kano State Emirate Law 2019 and which if left unchecked will destroy the good and established image of the Kano Emirate.
