The Kano State House Of Assembly has reinstated Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II as the Emir of Kano.

The decision came after the Kano State House of Assembly voted to remove the current Emir and abolish the four additional Emirates created in 2019 through a contentious legal amendment.

According to 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, but it was reported that Sanusi II has been reinstated, and is expected in Kano on Friday.

Inside sources told Leadership that, “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.”

The then restructuring of the Kano Emirate is seen as a political manoeuvre to diminish the influence of then Emir Sanusi II, a vocal critic of the former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje administration.

The establishment of new emirates led to a decentralization of power, weakening the control and prestige of the traditional Kano Emirate Council.


After Thursday’s session, Lawan Hussaini Chediyar Yan Gurasa, the Majority Leader of the Kano State House of Assembly and sponsor of the Amendment Bill, informed journalists that the bill has been forwarded to the governor for approval. He noted that, with the bill’s passage, there is currently no reigning Emir in Kano’s five emirates – Kano, Bichi, Gaya, Rano, and Karaye. The new law empowers the governor to instruct traditional kingmakers to select a new emir.”
