Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has said the deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, will face trial over alleged N2.2 billion land scam.
Speaking on Monday at the Government House in Kano during an interaction with journalists to mark this year’s Democracy Day, Ganduje, said the new Emirates in the stay has come to stay and Sanusi was dethroned because of his opposition to their creation.
He said, “Let me state clearly that our new emirates have come to stay. We deliberately created additional emirates to spread development and ensure even distribution of social facilities across the state. This is a system our government believed and committed to achieve. But the former emir needed to find his way out to complete the system.
“Again, the legal action instituted by Sanusi and the so-called Kano elders has also slowed down government reforms on the new emirates. We thank God the recent court ruling has cleared the way. The anti-corruption agency is also free to trial Sanusi.”
