- Gov Ganduje has planned to move the Emir of Kano Mallam Muhammadu Sanusi II, CON to Bichi
Kano State governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has plan to move Emir of Kano, Mohammadu Sanusi II to Bichi Local Government area of the state .
Kano State Renaissance Coalition of Civil Society Group on Thursday has allegedly uncovered moves by the Governor Ganduje to swap Emir Sanusi from Kano to Bichi Local Government.
The group’s spokesperson, Ibrahim Wayya, said in a statement he
signed that, “It has come to the notice of the Renaissance Coalition
that, Kano State Government has gotten a wind of a vile plan to swap the
Emir of Kano Mallam Muhammadu Sanusi II, CON to Bichi, and in the event
he resists, he shall be deposed.
“This is quite unfortunate that, despite a subsisting court ruling
which has ordered the maintenance of status quo pending conclusion of
the matter before it, and even the contentious law which was maliciously
and hurriedly made, and is being challenged before the court, has not
explicitly provided for such swap,” he added.
He said, “This is indeed a very dangerous move that is likely to
cause violent unrest in the polity, and the alleged plot also shows
extreme desperation on the part of the governor to advance a personal
vendetta at the expense of the peace and wellbeing of the citizens he
swore to protect.”
“We deem it our responsibility to do everything possible within our
power to advocate for the peace and wellbeing of the citizens, by
calling on all well meaning individuals and the Federal Government, to
call the governor to order, to seize and desist from any further hostile
action against the Kano emirate and the person of the Emir of Kano
Mallam Muhammadu Sanusi ll.
“We believe in the adage better safe than sorry, we always want to be
on the right path and the right side of history, expressing our
objective opinions and engage relevant authorities for appropriate and
timely action to prevent societal disasters,” he warned.
Ibrahim further noted that ” We decided not to wait and be reactive
but to be proactive because of the perceived heavy toll the
repercussions of the alleged action of the Governor Abdullahi Umar
Ganduje, awaits the people of Kano, if the alleged plot is materialized
and remains unchecked.”
“Therefore, as responsible and concerned citizens, we strongly call
on the governor to desist from going on with this alleged plot and such
similar action, which is capable of jeopardizing the relative peace we
enjoy in the State. We also particularly call on the security agencies,
political leaders, the respected elders, venerated Ulamas,
intellectuals, opinion leaders and any person or people with the means
to reach out to advise the Governor to desist from such act.”
“However, in the event that the Governor refuses to heed the good
counsel and goes ahead to actualize the evilly hatched dastardly agenda,
we would be left with no any other option but to call on the federal
Government to declare a state of emergency in Kano state as soon as the
Governor makes the pronouncement of the alleged plot, in order to save
Kano State from the consequences of the Governor’s action.
” We wish to use this medium to remind the people and Kano State
Government on the consequences that occurred when similar action was
attempted against the then Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero in 1981. We
are of the strong belief that, today if such action is attempted may
likely be the worst because of increased social and economic stress
which are already keeping people on edge, ready to erupt as well as a
much higher restless youth population in the State.”
“It is our prayer that, the Federal Government, must to do everything
possible to prevail on the Governor to forestall the alleged plot of
Swapping the Emir of Kano Mallam Muhammad Sanusi, to ensure that our
dear State remains peaceful.”
All efforts to get government response on the matter were not successful.
