Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II has been reinstated as the Emir of Kano, according to a report by Leadership.

This decision followed the Kano State House of Assembly’s resolution to dethrone the current Emir and also dismantle the four new Emirates in the State established under a controversial 2019 law.

Though it has not been officially announced, Leadership has it on good authority that Sanusi II has been reinstated, and is expected in Kano on Friday, May 24.

“So certainly with the passage of the Bill, Sanusi automatically stands reinstated. No need for confirmation, the thing to is wait for the Governor to assent to it,” a source told the publication.

It would be recalled that the state government on March 9, 2020 dethroned Sanusi on the grounds of insubordination, and he was replaced by Aminu Ado-Bayero, who was transferred from Bichi emirate to Kano.
