Leaders Intensify Move To Reconcile Gov.Ganduje And Emir Sanusi


A team of leaders is set to reconcile the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje and Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II.

The committee to intervene in the ongoing crisis in Kano state is headed by a former military head of state, Abdulsalami Abubakar.

Also in the committee are Kayode Fayemi and Bello Masari, governors of Ekiti and Katsina states respectively.

There has been a cold war between Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano Muhammad Sanusi II, the emir of Kano, with the former threatening to dethrone the later which has ticked off a chain of reactions.

Ganduje created additional emirates in Kano, splitting the entire domain once under Sanusi.

He also issued a two-day ultimatum to the emir to accept his appointment as the chairman of Kano state council of chiefs following a new emirate law he signed.

This was to compel Sanusi to accept the creation of the four additional emirates.

The governor also claimed he received a letter asking him to dethrone the emir if he fails to submit to the state’s authority.
