Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano State has announced the appointment of Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi as the new Emir of Kano.

The governor signed the law at exactly 5:10pm alongside his deputy, the Speaker of the State Assembly and other principal officers in his administration.


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


Before dethroning Sanusi, he had split Kano emirate into five. – Kano, Bichi, Rano, Gaya and Karaye.


But the Kano House of Assembly repealed the law, on Thursday.


The new law states that all offices created under the repealed law have been dissolved, and district heads appointed or elevated under the law are to revert to their former positions.


The Commissioner for Local Government shall oversee all transitional arrangements, including how to deal with the assets and liabilities of the abolished Emirates and the new structures created under the repealed Principal Law dated 5th December, 2019.
