Emir Sanusi shuns Ganduje’s inauguration
The raging crisis between Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano state and Emir of Kano, His Highness Mohammadu Sanusi II, continues as Sanusi was conspicuously absent at the inauguration of the governor.
Ganduje created four new emirates with first class emirs, a development many believe was targeted at curtailing Emir Sanusi’s powers in Kano Emirate.
As at 10 a.m, the Sani Abacha stadium, venue of the swearing-in of Ganduje for the second term, was filled beyond capacity.
In their colourful arrays, the newly appointed Emir of Bichi, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero; Emir of Rano, Alhaji Abubakar Tafida Ila among prominent government functionaries and captain of industries, were around to grace the occasion.
