The national leader of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Dr Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has said an average Kano person doesn’t want injustice. 

The former governor of Kano State made this remark when he addressed his teeming supporters of the Kwankwasiyya political movement during Sallah celebration at his residence. 

He stressed that the Kwankwassiya people were peaceful but have always had to contend with their political enemies. He said, “In 2019, we won the governorship election in this state but enemies of the state went against us through the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the courts and so on. What happened is now a history. “It was the same thing in 2023. We won the election overwhelmingly and there were a lot of efforts by enemies of the state who are the minority here to take it, but by the grace of God, he decided that justice would be done. And I am sure that has gone a long way to maintain peace and order in the state. 

“But it looks like the enemies are at it again, going by what is happening on the issue of the emirate council. 

“On the contrary, people were further reinforced and working very hard to ensure that more people join this movement. And I am not surprised because the average Kano person doesn’t want injustice. That’s why we are here.” 

Daily Trust recalls that Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Sanusi became the 14th Emir of Kano in 2014 during the Kwankwaso administration, after the death of Ado Bayero. But he was dethroned and banished in 2020 by Abdullahi Ganduje, Kwankwaso’s successor, over allegations of insubordination. 

Aminu Bayero, son of the late Emir Bayero, succeeded Sanusi on the throne, while the Kano Emirate was balkanised into five emirates. 

In May, the Kano State Assembly repealed the law used to unseat Sanusi and Governor Kabir Yusuf reinstated Sanusi as the 16th emir after signing the new Kano Emirate Council law. Hours later, a Federal High Court in Kano ordered the state government not to enforce the Emirate Council (repeal) Law, 2024.
