GOV GANDUJE Vs SANUSI: Assembly moves in, probes Emir for alleged misuse of funds

The crisis between Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State and the Emir of Kano, Mallam Muhammadu Sanusi has attracted the state’s House of Assembly.
The lawmakers have begun to scrutinize the activities of the Emir, and on Wednesday set up an eight-man committee to investigate allegations against the traditional ruler, and report back to it within two weeks.
The committee is headed by the member representing Warawa Local Government, Alhaji Labaran Abdul.
Sanusi is accused of misappropriation of funds belonging to the emirate council, undue criticisms of the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje and the policies of the Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government, as well as sending his daughter to represent him at an official event.
The matter was brought before the House by Alhaji Ibrahim Gama, member representing Nasarawa Local Government Area, under a motion of urgent public importance.
Gama, expressed reservations over a recent comment credited to Sanusi, in which he talked of the proposed Kano light rail project to be executed by the Governor Ganduje-led administration.
Gama, who is chairman of the House Committee on Works, said, “The statement from the emir is capable of not only tarnishing his image, but that of the state government and the Assembly.
“During his speech in Kaduna, the monarch alleged that the Kano State governor and his entourage, including me as the Chairman of the House Committee on Works, wasted one month in China, seeking loan to construct a rail project.
“The emir’s statement was false. We spent only four days in China and our visit was to find out the capability of the company to handle the rail project.
“His allegation has caused a lot of insult to me, the state government, as well as the House of Assembly by the general public – in and outside the state.”
