Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State on Wednesday disclosed that some unpatriotic politicians encouraged the deposed Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero, to fight back after he was dethroned.

Disclosing this through his Chief Press Secretary, Sanusi Bature, the governor said these unpatriotic politicians are behind the court case challenging his deposition by the Kano State Government.

Featuring on Arise TV’s Morning Show, the governor’s spokesman described Bayero’s fight to upturn his dethronement as unnecessary.

Stressing that politics was involved in the issue of Kano Emirate tussle, Bature recounted that Emir Muhammed Sanusi never challenged the former state government when he was deposed in 2019.

Recall that Governor Yusuf had dethroned Aminu Bayero while reinstating Sanusi as the Emir of Kano in May.

This followed the decision of the state Assembly to repeal the 2019 Kano Emirate law.

However, Bature said: “We wanted him to vacate the palace because it’s used as a guest house and a graveyard, we want it renovated quickly so that it can serve its purpose. When the governor reinstated the Emir and had given 48 hours for all the other emirs to vacate their palaces.

“Ado Bayero in his own wisdom decided to remove his family and everything belonging to him from the palace. When I was there, the place was so empty when Sanusi entered.

“But some unpatriotic politicians from and outside Kano decided to ignite him to come back to Kano and strike a fight which is unnecessary. Some of the unpatriotic politicians are behind the filing of the court case, like it or not, there is politics here.

“Emir Aminu Ado Bayero was appointed after the dethronement of Sanusi but why didn’t Sanusi fight back at that time?”
