Balkanization of Emirates is Not Good – Emir Sanusi

The reinstated Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II on Friday condemned balkanization of Emirates by politicians.

Emir Sanusi stated this after receiving his letter of appointment from the Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf at the Government House in Kano.

Sanusi was dethroned in 2020 after a fallout with the former governor Abdullahi Ganduje. He attributed his reinstatement on the throne to the intervention and will of God.

While delivering his appreciation speech, the Emir said, “The Arabians used to say in everything that we are going to witness, there is a lesson that shows us that God is there. Whatever is happening to an individual is preordained by Allah and to those who are sensible enough, it’s a lesson.

“My Governor and our assembly members, you will not understand the gravity of what you did for the history of Kano and the country at large. Among Kano Emirs, it started from Bagauda over 1,000 years ago. In this year, it was once that we had Emir Muhammadu Koguna who was overthrown and he came back after some days. This shows that in 1,000 years, there has been no case like what happened now.

“In the northern part of this country, we have seen it in different states how politicians balkanised emirates with a state with one Emir becoming 20, some 19. In states of northern Nigeria, there are Local Governments with two or three first-class Emirs all because the system has been destroyed.

“This thing that has been brought to Kano, had it been it was allowed, one day we will wake up with Emir of Kumbotso, Bichi, Fagge and 44 Emirs. So what the government and the assembly did is a rescue mission.”
