- Shehu Sani has sent a powerful message to Governor Ganduje of Kano state over rift with Emir Sanusi
- The former lawmaker reminded the governor of the fact that power is transient
- Emir Sanusi is facing a probe by Kano state public complaints and anti-corruption commission over allegation of N2.2 billion land scam
The immediate past representative of Kaduna Central at the Senate, Shehu Sani, has pleaded with Governor Abdullahi Ganduje to thread softly in his dealing with the Emir of Kano, Mallam Muhammadu Sanusi ll.
Legit.ng reports that the former lawmaker asked the governor to forgive Emir Sanusi of any wrongdoing.
Sani in a tweet on Friday, March 6, via his verified Twitter account, @ShehuSani, urged governor Ganduje to “forgive, forget and move on and let the Emir be.”
He reminded the governor that power is transient and as such, he may need the Emir someday.
The Emir is facing a fresh probe by Kano state public complaints and anti-corruption commission over allegation of N2.2 billion land scam.
The first-class traditional ruler who was expected to appear before the commission’s team of investigators on Thursday, March 5, didn’t appear, requesting for another day.
The commission, however, insisted on Friday, March 6, that the Emir must appear before it for questioning on Monday, March 9.
The governor has been at loggerhead with Emir Sanusi and many see the fresh probe as a continuation of the initial crisis that led to the creation of an additional four new emirates in the state.
Recall that this is not the first time the Emir and the Kano Emirate are coming under probe since Malam Muhammadu Sanusi ll, ascended the throne in 2014.
The Kano anti-graft agency investigated the Emir over what it called “questionable” expenditure to the tune of N4 billion but the probe was later suspended.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Emir Sanusi was summoned by the Kano state public complaints and anti-corruption commission over allegations bordering on financial misappropriation.
The Kano emirate council under Sanusi's watch was accused of misappropriating N3.4 billion.
In another report, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), an Islamic human rights group advocated for heavy sanction on parents who abandon their wards, saying such moves would curb the surging waves of child neglect across the country.
In a statement released by its director Professor Ishaq Akintola on Monday, March 2, the right group scolded the growing rate of child abandonment and submitted that children left roaming the streets would become "a sword of Damocles hanging above our heads."
