Kano Assembly Bows To Pressure, Suspends Emir’s Probe

The Kano State House of Assembly has dropped its earlier plan to probe the Emir of Kano, Mallam Muhammad Sanusi II, on an eight-count charge comprising of financial impropriety, among others.

Findings from our correspondent reveals that the House dropped the probe following a letter of appeal dispatched to the State Assembly by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

Speaker of the State Assembly, Kabiru Alhassan Rurum, read the letter to members on the floor of the house

Ganduje’s letter to the State Assembly emphasised that the Emir had personally apologised for his mistakes during a reconciliation forum, organised by Northern Governors’ forum in Kaduna, hence the reason for the move.

After extensive deliberation on the letter, the State Assembly, unanimously decided to drop the investigation.

It would be recalled that the State Assembly had earlier constituted an eight-man committee to probe the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi II.
