Sack Of Kano Emirs: Yusuf’s Action Capable Of Causing Generational Conflict – APC Group

A youth group in the All Progressives Congress, APC, has expressed concern over possible repercussions of the move by Governor Abba Yusuf, who sacked five Emirs in the state.

Ejes Gist News recalls that the governor, on Thursday, issued 48 hours to five Emirs, including Aminu Ado Bayero, his brother Nasiru Ado Bayero, and three other first class monarchs, to vacate their palaces.

The governor, who made the announcement while signing the new Kano Emirate Bill (2024) into law, also reinstated the former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Muhammad Sanusi II, as Emir of Kano.


Reacting, the party group, under the aegis of APC Youth Crusaders For Peace and Development, said the development was capable of destabilizing the state, stressing that the dethronment of the five Emirs can trigger generational conflict.

National Coordinator of the group, Hon. Cyril Adamu made the observation in a statement issued on Friday.

The group recalled its earlier statement, which warned against alleged sinister plot by some powerful figures in the state to cause chaos in Kano and other parts of Nigeria.


According to him, the governor’s action on Thursday was “intended to stoke unrest in the state and the country as a whole, to destabilise President Tinubu’s administration”.

Part of the statement reads, “Governor Yusuf being a Northerner and fully aware of the value the subjects of the emirates placed on the royal stools, decided to abolish the emirates just to spark unrest in the state in a bid to destabilise the administration of President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“The manner in which the controversial Kano State Emirate Council (Repeal) Bill 2024 was signed into law by the governor the same day it was passed by the state house of assembly, raised suspicions that it is a calculated move to destroy the traditional institutions in the state, and by extension, the peace and stability of the state and the country at large.

“The governor plans to revert Kano to a single emirate by reinstating the deposed Emir, Muhammadu Sanusi II. This could lead to a breakdown of law and order and a generational conflict between the ruling houses of Kano. Political unrest is already brewing in the state following the controversial bill’s signing into law”.

However, a Federal High Court sitting in Kano had on Friday morning granted an ex-parte order stopping the governor from reinstating Sanusi as Kano Emir pending the determination of a substantive suit filed against the reinstatement.
