Issue of Kano emirate to be revisited- Kwankwaso

Rabiu Kwankwaso, NNPP Expelled presidential candidate
Adewale Ajayi,
Former Governor of Kano State and the leader of the Kwankwasiyya movement, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has said that the issue of Kano emirates will definitely be revisited.
The immediate past Governor  of the State Abdullahi Ganduje had split the Kano emirate into five and dethroned the then Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi.
Following the victory of the New Nigerian Peoples Party NNPP in last year’s election, Kwankwaso  said the government of Engr Abba Kabir Yusuf would review the dethronement and balkanisation of the emirate.
Speaking in an interview granted to journalists, the NNPP leader reinstated that the issue of Kano emirates will definitely be revisited.
“Honestly it is one of the things that nobody has sat with me to discuss so far but,I am sure we are going to sit and see how to go about it. Is it going to be allowed, demolished, corrected or whatever? It will be revisited, what’s supposed to be done will be done.
“There were a lot of things and this was a trap. All these things were not done in good faith or intention. It was brought with some bad intentions which everyone of you here and our listeners are aware of.
“Sometimes you come with things that are good and they turn out to be bad while sometimes you bring things that are bad and they turn out to be good. So, all I know is that I was not consulted as of now but definitely we will come to discuss and see what should be done.”
There has been reports that after the Supreme Court validated the victory of Governor Yusuf, there were intensified calls for the reinstatement of Sanusi.
On his part, Sanusi, who has not directly commented on the issue of his reinstatement, had accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano of attempting to seize power through a court process not knowing God was waiting.
He said this while responding to an interview Nasir Gawuna, gubernatorial candidate of the APC, granted the BBC Hausa, saying he had said he accepted the apex court’s judgment on the governorship dispute in the state as God’s decision.
But responding to Gawuna’s assertion, the former Central Bank governor said, “We thank Allah, the Almighty and congratulate the people of Kano State. During our last session, we prayed and admonished the judges to do what is right. At last God has given the people of Kano State what they voted for.
“When people vote, any attempt to stifle their choice is a shared injustice. The robbery is not on the winner, but the electorate. God would never allow this.
“People participated in an election and lost. Now they tried to force their way in through corrupt judges. This book we are reading is about accepting destiny whether good or bad, to accept God’s decision.
“One laughable thing is that after some people were defeated in an election, they went to court to hijack power. At last in the court they met Allah in wait. After stopping them from gaining power by force, now they said that they have accepted His decision.
“The best time to accept destiny is after the polls. You know people did not vote for you. You know you lost but made moves to hijack power. It’s too late.
“God is always on the side of the truth. He may give a tyrant a chance or two, but surely that would be short-lived.”
