Muhammadu Sanusi says President Bola Tinubu did not interfere in his reinstatement as the Emir of Kano.

On Thursday, Abba Yusuf, governor of Kano, announced the reinstatement of Sanusi after signing the new Kano Emirate Council Law.

The state assembly had passed the amended Kano State Emirate Council (Repeal) Bill 2024.

The law repealed the 2019 version, which balkanised the Kano emirate into five jurisdictions and was relied upon to depose Sanusi as Emir in 2020.

Speaking on the development in an interview with Television Continental (TVC), Sanusi said Tinubu recognised that the Kano drama was a local matter and resisted all pressure to interfere.

The former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) added that he was not given an opportunity to defend himself after being dethroned on “unsubstantiated allegations”.

He described his return to the throne as a correction of injustice done to the people, culture and tradition of Kano.

He also thanked the Kano state government and the security services for maintaining law and order in the state.

He assured the state and federal government of his loyalty and cooperation, saying “they can be assured that they would find in me a friend, confidant and adviser”.
