Muhammadu Sanusi II has been turbaned as the Emir of Kano for a second time.

The coronation of the former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor as the 16th Emir took place on Friday at the Kano state government house.

On Thursday, Abba Yusuf, governor of Kano, announced the reinstatement of Sanusi as Emir after signing the new Kano Emirate Council Law.

The state assembly had passed the amended Kano State Emirate Council (Repeal) Bill 2024.

The law repealed the 2019 version, which balkanised the Kano emirate into five jurisdictions and was relied upon to depose Sanusi as Emir in 2020.

The law also empowered the governor to restore the Kano emirate system to its original format.

However, a federal high court in Kano has ordered the state government not to enforce the new law.

Mohammed Liman, the judge, asked the government to “suspend” and “not give effect to the Kano State Emirate Council (Repeal) Law, 2024, as they affect all offices and institutions of the Emirate Council created pursuant to the provisions of the Kano State Emirate Council Law, 2019″.
