In a surprising turn of events, former Central Bank Governor Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II has reportedly been reinstated as the Emir of Kano. This follows the passage of a new law by the Kano State House of Assembly, which abolished four additional emirates created in 2019.

The new law, titled ‘The Kano State Emirates Councils (Repeal) Bill, 2024,’ was passed to dissolve the emirates established by the administration of former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje. The creation of these emirates had been a controversial move, leading to Sanusi’s removal as the Emir of Kano.

Although there has been no official statement regarding Sanusi’s reinstatement, sources close to the matter confirmed that he is expected to return to Kano on Friday. One source stated, “With the passage of the Bill, Sanusi automatically stands reinstated. We are now waiting for the governor to give his assent.”

The announcement of the bill’s passage was made by the Senior Special Assistant on Digital Media to the state governor, Tuwita, on the social media platform X. The bill successfully passed its third reading before the lawmakers.

The 2019 law, which created the additional emirates of Rano, Karaye, Gaya, and Bichi, was part of a significant political rift between then-Governor Ganduje and Sanusi. This amendment led to the deposition of Sanusi and the appointment of new emirs for the newly created emirates.

With the new bill’s approval, the creation of these emirates has been nullified, and Sanusi Lamido Sanusi is set to be restored as the sole Emir of Kano Emirate.
