Sanusi: APC Stalwart Cautions Ganduje, Kano Lawmakers

By Emmanuel Mogbede

Abuja –   Mr Timi Frank, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has appealed to Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State to handle with care, allegations leveled against the Emir of Kano, Malam Muhammad Sanusi.

In a statement on Friday in Abuja, Frank also called on the State House of Assembly to scrutinise the allegations properly before taking any action.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the Kano State House of Assembly announced that it had set up an eight-man committee to investigate the Emir.

The first class traditional ruler is being investigated on allegations bordering over alleged misconduct and misappropriation of funds belonging to the Kano Emirate Council.

Reacting to the development, Frank urged the governor to overlook some of the alleged excesses of Sanusi whom he described as “a new generation Emir’’.

He also appealed to the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, traditional leaders in the country, Northern Governors Forum and elders in the region to intervene and settle the matter amicably.

“I call on our traditional fathers to quickly intervene now before this controversy between the state government and the Kano Emirate degenerates.

“I appeal to our dear Gov. Ganduje and the state lawmakers not to exercise their full strength against the Malam Sanusi-led Emirate in Kano following perceived wrong doings.

“I believe, like other opinion leaders have said, there should be a way to amicably settle the differences,’’ Frank said.

He reminded the lawmakers and the governor not to forget how Sanusi spoke out the truth during the PDP-led administration which resulted to the enthronement of an APC-led government in the country.

The APC stalwart also called on the Federal Government not to keep mute on the matter, but to intervene to ensure peace and tranquility reign between the Kano State Government and the Emir.

He specifically begged the governor and other top state government functionaries not to promote moves that would lead to the dethronement of the Emir.

According to Frank, such action can become a bad precedence against traditional institutions in the state and the country at large.
