Governor Ganduje cancelled Emir Sanusi’s royal parade

The governor of Kano state has cancelled an annual city parade by the powerful traditional emir , officials said Thursday , a sign of the frosty relationship between the two leaders .

Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje scrapped the horseback procession by the Emir of Kano , Muhammadu Sanusi II, after a security meeting held late on Wednesday.

The procession in the northern town of Kano , a symbolic march celebrating the power of the monarch , held to mark the end of the Muslim month of Ramadan , had been due to take place on Thursday .

The traditional march usually sees the emir pay tribute to the governor while on horseback .

It also includes a tour of the city with residents lining the streets , beating drums , playing the drums and firing muskets .

But the governor’ s spokesman , Abba Anwar , said the royal carnival was cancelled due to “ security reasons . ”

He said there had been warnings of a possible “ breach of peace ” during the event .

Sanusi is one of the most important rulers in the mainly -Muslim north , and one of Nigeria ’ s leading Islamic figures .

But last month , Ganduje carved up Sanusi ’ s powers by dividing the ancient Kano emirate into five , a move critics say was a bid to curb his influence .

Supporters of Sanusi say the cancellation of the parade was another move to cut his power.

Sanusi , a former central bank governor, became emir in 2014 , inheriting an ancient title over an area the size of Israel with the population of Portugal .

He will comply with the government ’ s decision , his office said .

Instead , he would hold special prayers to commemorate the anniversary of his coronation.

Ganduje, who won re – election for another four years in March , is said to view Sanusi as a critic opposed to his victory .

The state anti – graft agency has recommended Sanusi ’ s suspension from office over alleged misappropriation of 3 . 4 billion nairas ($ 9 . 5 million , 8 . 4 million euros ) of palace funds given by the state government .

The emir ’ s aides are also under investigation for alleged graft .
Sanusi and his aides deny the accusations .

  8. A computer starts somewhere. It starts with a bios and a CPU and a motherboard ect… When we code that computer to pump out a random number, what makes it pick the number it picks? Exactly the same computer sits beside it’s identical and they both pick different 1st random numbers. Is the Bios fed a seed during construction and every new bios gets a different seed? Those of us that have worked with random numbers know what a seed is. So why does my computer give a number between 100 and 1000 as 756, but yours gives, 537? Is that not a form of intelligence beyond that of artificial? We gave the computer the ability to give random numbers, but what makes it give or pick that random number when in reality it has no ‘will’ to decide. Why 3 and not 4, when it favours nothing? Even with a seed, what makes it choose 5 with this seed but 7 with that seed? Where in the ruels of life does it say that, with this seed equaling 756395837 in that computer, 1st random # will be this?.
