Sanusi makes first appointment as Kano emir

The emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has appointed Hamisu Sani as the new ward head of Kofar Mazugal, in Dala local government area of the state.

This appointment is the first since Sanusi’s reinstatement on Thursday.

Sanusi urged the new ward head to ensure peaceful coexistence among the subjects of the area and contribute his quota towards the development of the state as a whole.

Earlier, district heads and personalities such as delegations from religious and market bodies paid homage on Emir Sanusi at the palace.

The delegation includes, Ansarulddeen Tijjanniya sect and Traders from Kano popular textile market (Kantin Kwari) as well as the commodities market (Singer market) among others.

Politics Nigeria reports that Sanusi’s return as the 16th emir of Kano has been marked by controversy.

Sanusi was reinstalled as the emir of Kano last Thursday after the State House of Assembly repealed the Kano State Emirate Councils (Repeal) Bill 2024.

Governor Abba Yusuf signed the bill into law and reinstated Sanusi, a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
