Kano State Governor , Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje , late Thursday , received a letter from a coalition of 35 civil society groups urging him to remove the Emir of Kano , Muhammadu Sanusi II if he failed to submit himself to the laws of the state.
The letter was released late Thursday by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor , Abba Anwar ,
The letter signed by the Chairman of the Coalition , Ibrahim Ali , stated , “ If the Emir of Kano fails to submit to the authority of the government of Kano State, we call on the Governor of Kano State on the strongest term , to act strictly in accordance with the provision of Kano Emirate Council Law 2019 in order to heed the state forward . ”
Titled , “ Kano State Emirate Council Law, 2019 : Demand Letter , ” it read in part that , “ The coalition of 35 Civil Society Groups under the above – mentioned group (UMBRELLA OF KANO CONCERNED CIVIL SOCIETY GROUPS ) is curiously studying the unfolding events in the running of Kano State affairs especially in recent time , as it relates to the lingering face – off between the Government of Kano State on one hand and the Emir of Kano on the other hand .
“ Reminding specifically that , matters that arose from the aftermath of Kano State High Court decision nullifying the Kano State Emirate Council Law , that was enacted by the State House of Assembly , which eventually paved way for the enactment of another Law , creating additional 4 First Class Emirates, which also empowers the Governor to take disciplinary measures against any erring emir .
“ Soon afterwards , the same Law which repeals all the existing Emirate Councils Laws , and consolidates it in the Kano State Emirate Council Law 2019 , was again been challenged first by the purportedly 5 kingmakers from one of the 5 Emirates established by the said law .
“ With the recent decision of Kano State High Court , His Excellency shall proceed and ensure the full take – off of the Council of Emirs in the State . So as to stop the current distraction and generation of controversy . ”
