Kano state governor, Alhaji Abba Kabir Yusuf, on Thursday, signed the new emirate council law that repealed the State Emirate Council Law 2019 which established the state’s five emirate councils.

The governor also declared the reinstatement of Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II as Emir of Kano. Emir Sanusi was deposed four years ago.

The governor signed the law on Thursday evening alongside his deputy, the Speaker of the State Assembly, and other principal officers in the government. He described the event as historic and thanked the State of Assembly for performing their constitutional duties.

Governor Yusuf said the Kano state Emirate law 2019 that divided the over 1000 years of Kano Emirate into five has been repealed.

Former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje had dethroned Emir Sanusi in 2020, after a personal rift.

The governor, in a short speech in English and Hausa, said: “After signing the new Kano emirate council law at Government House, Kano, today. I hereby announce the reinstatement of HRH Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Emir of Kano State”.

Shortly after signing the new law, Kano kingmakers arrived Kano government house to reinstall Sanusi as the sole emir for Kano.

While the signing into law was ongoing in Kano, the main beneficiary of the new law, Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II, a former CBN governor and the 14th Emir of Kano, was in Port Harcourt discussing the state of the economy.

He spoke at the 2024 Rivers State Economic and Investment Summit at the Obi Wali International Conference Centre in Port Harcourt

Emir Sanusi II said that it will take a while for the Nigerian economy to bounce back from 10 years of mismanagement.

According to him, realistically, it requires more than six months or one year for the economic mismanagement of the last 10 years to be undone.
