The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, has broken his silence on the ongoing tussle between him and the deposed emir, Aminu Bayero.
Speaking in an interview with the Saturday Sun on the protracted crisis, Mr Sanusi said the beneficiaries of the former system feel hurt because they have been removed.
He also accused the immediate-past governor of the state, Abdullahi Ganduje, of creating rifts in the royal family.
He, however, commended Governor Abba Yusuf for fixing the damage done to the Kano Emirate by his predecessor.
According to him, the Emirate has “existed for over 1000 years”, adding that “we are one people” and “nobody asked for new emirates”,
Speaking further, the monarch said, “What we are dealing with is a situation where somebody divided us. And actually, when you create these things, some people get some privileges. They didn’t ask for it, but they’ve enjoyed it for four years.
“Now, when they lose it, it’s a problem. But the problem is not what has happened today. It is what happened four years ago. If it had not been done, we would not be in this situation today. We are one family, we are one people. Somebody comes, divides us up. Even in this family, he takes one emirate, gives it to a part of the family. Now, when people enjoy it for four years and you take it away from them, it becomes a problem.
“When Ganduje wanted to create these Emirates, he could not find a law to amend. He started by amending the Emirates Appointment and Deposition Law, which the court struck down. So, he had to, de novo, ex nihilo, out of nothing, create a law and create emirates, new emirates that never existed.
“Something called a Kano Emirate with eight local governments. That emirate with eight local governments had not existed in our one thousand years of history. The same thing with the Bichi Emirate, Rano Emirate, Gaya Emirate. None of them existed in one thousand years of history.
“So, they had the stools for four years and a new governor came on board and said we have to deal with this attack on our system, on our collective history. And he says we cannot, in the interest of preserving something with a history of four years, abolish a history of one thousand plus years. He says let’s go back to the original order.
“That was all that happened. It was not targeted at any individual, at any family, at any person. But of course, the people who were beneficiaries of this would hurt. And we understand that. It is not their fault. But we cannot, because we do not want to harm or hurt them and allow it to go on.
“So managing the situation is for all of us as citizens of Kano. As members of the royal family, it is for all of us to look at the big picture and see that what has been done has been done to restore the glory of our emirate and to protect our own history and custom. For me, even now that I am here, only God knows how long I will be here. I can die tomorrow.”
