There are reports that Governor Umar Ganduje is offended by Emir of Kano for three supposed reasons.
It will be recalled that Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has assented to the Kano Emirs Appointment and Deposition Amendment Bill 2019, after its passage by the state assembly.
The bill is believed to have emanated to wither the influence of Emir Sanusi Lamido Sanusi by establishing four additional emirates and four first class emirs in the state.
The bill, initiated on Monday, passed first reading on Tuesday and scaled through second and third reading on Wednesday.
The new Emirates include Rano, Gaya, Karaye and Bichi.
Ganduje, who spoke immediately after signing the bill into law, said that there was need to upgrade the traditional rulers based on their historical antecedents so that aspirations and dreams of their forefathers would come true.
According to sources, Emir Sanusi is believed to be behind the dollar bribe video scandal.
The emir is also accused of working against the Governor in the just concluded 2019 governorship election in the State.
“We have investigated and realised that the Governor needed to be dealt with. He is gradually becoming more influential than the Governor. We found out that he is the most likely person to have been behind the Gandollar video and that is obvious from his comments in public,” the source added.
Though the Emir is yet to make any public statement about the withering of his power, the governor already appointed four new emirs for the newly created emirates.
