Sanusi Blocks Ganduje From Sacking Him

Governor Umar Ganduje has been restrained from implementing reports of the anti-corruption commission which indicted Emir Sanusi.

A Federal High Court sitting in Kano State granted the ex-parte motion Sanusi filed on Tuesday against the governor and his attorney-general.

The court also restrained the state’s Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission and the State Attorney General Barrister Ibrahim Mukthar from acting on the Preliminary Report of Investigation In Respect of Petition of Financial Misappropriation against Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II.

Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has told State House Reporters, Tuesday, that they were making progress in the imbroglio resulting to the creation of four more Emirates and appointing their Emirs.

Ganduje and Sanusi have bee fighting a cloak-and-dagger war since 2016 when the Emir became critical of the governor, the APC, and President Muhammadu Buhari.

The state anti-corruption agency heated up the hostilities when it recently incited the governor of misappropriating of  N3.7bn by the Kano emirate.

The commission recommended Sanusi’s suspension, and Ganduje, two weeks go, was going to depose the emir but for intervention of Gov. Kayode Fayemi and Aliko Dangote.
