Gov Yusuf Meets NSA Over Kano Emirate Crisis


By Uche Onyeali 

Kano State governor, Abba Yusuf, yesterday, met the National Security Adviser, NSA, Nuhu Ribadu, in Abuja amid the emirate crisis in the state.

The visit is coming days after the Deputy Governor, Aminu Gwarzo, accused Ribadu of facilitating the return of the dethroned Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, to the palace by providing him with two private jets.

However, Gwaezo later tendered a public apology to the NSA over the allegations. 

Meanwhile, the office of the NSA denied the allegation.

Speaking with newsmen after the allegation, spokesperson of the office of the NSA, Zakari Mijinyawa denied Gwarzo’s claim. 

He said Ribadu did not provide the aircraft that returned Ado-Bayero to Kano.

The amendment of the Kano State Emirate Act by the House of Assembly caused a crisis barely a day after it was passed.

The law had dissolved all the five emirates created by former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and reinstated Emir Muhammadu Sanusi ll after reverting the institution to a single emirate.

But Sarkin Dawaki Babba, Aminu Dan’agundi, challenged the decision at the Federal High Court, presided over by Justice Liman, which granted an ex-parte order restraining the Kano State government from reinstating Emir Sanusi II.
