BREAKING: Sanusi Lamido Receives Appointment Letter as 16th Emir of Kano



The reinstated Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido has officially received his letter of appointment as the 16 Emir or Kano from Governor Abba Yusuf.

The event was held at the Kano State Government House on Friday.

The Emir was reinstated after Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf had signed the new emirate council law which removed emirs of Kano, Bichi, Rano, Gaya and Karaye, on Thursday.

Sanusi was dethroned in 2020 by former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje after a personal rift.

Before the dethronement, Ganduje had split Kano emirate into five – Kano, Bichi, Rano, Gaya and Karaye.

The law which the former governor used to remove Sanusi was, however, repealed by Kano House of Assembly on Thursday.
