The Emir has consistently spoken out against the governor and the policies of governments at the local and national levels.
Irohinoodua correspondent in Kano learnt this afternoon that Emir Sanusi was removed by the Kano State Government today. It is predictable that the Emir will head to court. However, sources told Irohinoodua that the Kano State Government has embarked on moves to replace the Emir, a plot aimed at blocking his possible return. Emir Sanusi has been controversial since his emergence as the custodian of tradition in Kano speaking more or less like an elected political office holder than a guard of the conservative norms.
