Members of the Kano State House of Assembly are currently fighting over plan to submit a report, recommending the removal of Emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi II.
A group had on Wednesday last week submitted a petition before the house, calling for the emir’s removal for alleged violation of culture and tradition of the state.
The speaker of the Assembly, Abdulaziz Gafasa, without reading the exact content of the petition, then set up a committee headed by the deputy speaker, Hamisu Chidari, to investigate and report within one week. But crisis broke in the Assembly on Monday Morning when the deputy speaker sought the approval of the house to present the report today. As members of the opposition PDP insisted that the report must be delayed till Tuesday for further investigation, the session went wild and the mace snatched by member representing Warawa Constituency. Insiders said there is strong indication that the emir would be removed today, either after receiving the report of the house or that of the state anti-graft agency.
