Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has said that he had no iota of regret over the reformation of Kano State traditional structure and the consequent deposition of Muhammad Sanusi II as Emir of Kano.
The Ravens learnt that Ganduje made this statement on 12 June 2020 during a media parley in Kano State organised to mark the Democracy Day.
Recall that the governor had splitted the traditional Kano Emirate, thereby diffusing the power of the Kano Emirate monarch after a protracted cold war between him and the deposed emir. The worst came when he announced the deposal and banishment of Muhammad Sanusi II, which was followed by widespread criticisms.
Speaking on this, Ganduje said the additional creation of four emirates is a landmark achievement which has contributed significantly to the lives of the people of the state.
He added that “The former Emir of Kano, who refused to be part of the reforms, had to bow out so that the reforms could be completed and the new emirates have come to stay. As of today, there is no legal issue before the court as regards the reforms of the traditional system.”
