Why the former Emir was dethroned
Muhammadu Sanusi was dethroned as the Emir of Kano by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje for alleged insubordination and disrespect for constituted authority. Sanusi was dethroned on Monday, March 9, 2020.
He said the dethroned emir persistently refused to attend official meetings and programmes organised by the state government without any lawful justification.
Following his dethronement, the state government announced Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero as the new emir.
