The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has accepted the appointment of the Abdullahi Ganduje-led government as the Chairman Council of Emir’s in Kano State.
The Emir also rejected a letter in circulation that he asked the governor to make specific clarifications on the appointment.
In a letter dated 19th December 20, 2019, and signed on behalf of Kano emirate council secretary, Alhaji Abba Yusuf, the acceptance of the position by the emir was categorically stated thus: “Kindly inform His Excellency that His Highness, Sarkin Kano, had not rejected his appointment as Chairman, Kano State Council of Chiefs. His Highness accepts the appointment.”
“In doing so, His Highness requests for further directives of His Excellency, the Governor. For clarity, these directives may include, the appointment of other members of the Council, the appointment of staff of the Council, provision of accommodation for the Secretariat and other logistics, to make the Council operational.”
The Secretary to the state government was asked to “graciously convey to His Excellency, the Governor, the renewed assurances of the highest esteem and regard of His Highness, Sarkin Kano.”
Emir Sanusi, in a statement through his Chief of Staff, Munir Sanusi Bayero, also distanced himself from the letter in circulation requesting the governor to make specific clarifications on the emir’s appointment.
“Yes we have accepted the appointment in earnest and we have our unreserved loyalty to the Governor and his government, but the purported letter in circulation does not come from us”, Munir added.
Recall that the Kano State government had given the Emir of Kano two days ultimatum to respond to the appointment.
