Alhaji Lamido Sanusi has been officially reinstated as the Emir of Kano State after receiving his letter of appointment from governor Abba Yusuf on Friday.

His reinstatement took place at the Government House in Kano, four years after he was unceremoniously booted out of office by former governor Abdullahi Ganduje who is currently the national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Paramount rulers, kingmakers, and other top dignitaries were present at the event which came barely 24 hours after governor Yusuf signed the Kano State Emirate Council (Repeal) Bill 2024 into law.

The new law replaces the Kano State Emirates Council Law, 2019, and scraps the emirate councils created by Mr Ganduje who many believed hated Lamido Sanusi.

That law was used by Ganduje to dismember the Kano Emirate into five in December 2019 and deposed Sanusi II, on March 9, 2020.

The emirates created by the Ganduje administration were Karaye, Bichi, Rano, and Gaya, in addition to Kano.
