Letters of appointment have been presented to the newly appointed emirs of Kano and Bichi emirates respectively.
Kano state governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, on Wednesday, March 11, presented the letter to the two emirs.
They were appointed emirs by Governor Ganduje on Monday, March 9.
The emirs are Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero for Kano emirate and Alhaji Nasiru Ado Bayero for Bichi emirate.
It was learnt that the emirs are sons of the late Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero.
Earlier, The Herald gathered that Governor Ganduje of Kano state has dethroned the Emir of Kano, Mallam Muhammadu Sanusi II over offences described as disrespect to the office of the governor and other government agencies.
Announcing the dethronement of the first class monarch, the secretary to the state government, Alhaji Usman Alhaji said the removal was with immediate effect.
According to the government of Kano state, the removal of Sanusi was done with the consent of relevant stakeholders in the ancient City.
The state government urged the people of Kano to stay calm and go about their normal business as a replacement for the Emir will be announced soon.
Sanusi and Governor Ganduje of Kano have been at loggerheads in the state for quite a while. The situation between both core Northern personalities was seen as the catalyst for the division of Kano into four distinct emirates.
