Kano emirate tussle: It’s a fight to finish – Gov’s spokesman

Sunusi Bature, spokesman of Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano State, has said the ongoing emirate tussle is a fight to finish.

Bature said this when he featured on an Arise TV programme.

Acknowledging the 15th Emir as a well respected person who is entitled to privileges as an indigene of the state, he said his actions did not match his personality.

He said, “Aminu Bayero is an indigene of Kano, well respected and we don’t want anything to happen to him. He is not under any pressure to leave the state. As a very important personality, he has the right to move anywhere.

“The police have taken side at the moment and they seem not to be taking orders from the Governor.

“First of all, when Aminu arrived at midnight at a time when he and his family vacated the main palace, they took all their belongings from the main palace but he was convinced by some unpatriotic politicians to return to Kano and give a fight.

“For us, it’s a fight to finish because the Governor has the right to dethrone Emir, to reappoint Emir, to appoint a new emir or reinstate. He has the constitutional right and nobody can take that from him. Even if it will take us 100 years the governor has that exclusive right to depose or appoint a new emir.”
