The Kano State Chairman of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Hashim Sulaiman Dungurawa, said the 15th Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero and four other first class Emirs of Gaya, Rano, Karaye and Bichi were like commissioners appointed by former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje to assist in winning the 2023 elections.
Dungurawa, who made this known while speaking to journalists in his office, explained that it was a gamble arranged to expire with the tenure of the former governor, who subsequently lost elections.
Dungurawa stated that the emirs enjoyed the status of appointed commissioners by Ganduje, adding it was a matter of public good that they ceased to be recognized after Ganduje’s tenure.
“The five first class emirs we met on the throne were only commissioners appointed by Ganduje to assist him to win elections in 2023. They were sustained and they lost. And so their tenure came to an end.
“The fact remains that immediately Ganduje lost the elections and stepped down as Governor of Kano State, they ought to have also vacated their seats because none of them occupied the vacant seat of Emir of Kano since Muhammadu Sanusi II left.
“But may be they didn’t accept that their tenure has expired after their benefactor lost the elections which witnessed Ganduje’s exit from the the seat of power in the state.”
He posited that the decision to relieve them of their traditional status was based on public outcry over the vacant position of Emir of Kano.
“The Governor, Abba Yusuf acted based on public outcry that there was vacuum in the seat of Emir of Kano and reinstated Muhammadu Sanusi II who was earlier dethroned. The lawmakers repealed the Kano Emirate council law 2019 and the G
governor assented to it”.
He commended Justice A.M. Liman for handling the attendant legal tussle that was brought before his lordship in a professional way.
Reacting to the hoisting of flag at the Nassarawa mini palace, he said, “Don’t forget Nassarawa mini palace is a guest house for the Emir. It is all about the Kano Emirate, it shows the SA to Emir of Kano is doing his job faithfully by overseeing the graveyard of their forefathers laid to rest in the mausoleum.”
