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 .
