In a statement signed by the Secretary to the Kano state Government, Alahji Usman Alhaji, the Emir’s removal is tied to his consistent show of insubordination.

The State Government also claimed that the Emir’s action is capable of destroying the ‘good and established image of Kano’.

Part of the statement reads : The Kano state executive council under the Chairmanship of his excellency, Gov. Ganduje (OFR) has unanimously approved the immediate removal/dethronement of the Emir of Kano Emirate Muhammed Sanusi 11.

The Emir of Kano is in total disrespect to lawful instructions from the office of the state Governor and other lawful authorities, including his persistent refusal to attend official meetings and programmes organised by the Government without any lawful justification which amounts to total insubordination.

The state government also stated that the removal was made so as to safeguard the sanctity, culture, religion and prestige of the Kano emirate built over a thousand years ago.
