The Kano State Government has given the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido two days to officially accept or reject his latest appointment.
Sanusi was appointed Chairman of Kano State Council of Emirs by the Governor Abdullahi Ganduje-led state government.
Following his appointment, the Emir of Kano was yet to notify the government of his acceptance or rejection.
However, the ultimatum was disclosed by Ganduje’s Media Aide, Salihu Tanko Yakasai also known as Dawisu via his Twitter handle.
“The Kano State Government has given a 2day ultimatum (from today) to His Highness the Emir of Kano Sanusi Lamido, to officially notify the government his acceptance or otherwise, of his appointment as Chairman, Kano State Council of Emirs,” he tweeted.
We had reported that Sanusi’s appointment was announced amid the face-off between him and Ganduje over the creation of new Kano emirates signed into law last week by Ganduje.
There had been speculations that the Emir of Bichi, Aminu Bayero, would be appointed to chair the council.
But, in a statement on Sunday by his spokesman, Abba Anwar, Ganduje ordered Sanusi to summon council meeting immediately.
