Kano Govt urges Tinubu to relocate deposed Emir Ado Bayero

By Innocent Raphael

The Kano State Government has appealed to President Bola Tinubu to relocate the deposed 15th Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero, from the state, citing his continued presence as a threat to public order.

Deputy Governor Aminu Abdussalam, addressing the media on Monday, elaborated on the state’s position amidst the ongoing chieftaincy crisis.

He defended the decision to reinstate the 16th Emir, Sanusi, asserting that the State Government had not been officially notified of any court orders mandating a halt to their actions.

He claimed that while the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun was served with the court order, the Kano State Government and other relevant parties were not.

Abdussalam also apologized on behalf of the state to the Office of the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu, over accusations of providing transport for Bayero.

He opined that people within the All Progressives Congress (APC) were instigating unrest in response to the Emirate’s dissolution and Sanusi’s reinstatement.

Expressing concern over directives from higher authorities enforcing the court order, Abdussalam questioned the selective service of the order and alleged that it served undisclosed interests.

He highlighted incidents of protest and unrest near government offices, implicating opposition politicians in fomenting the disturbances.

Abdussalam urged Tinubu and the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu to investigate the situation and facilitate Bayero’s relocation, asserting that his presence posed a security risk.

He concluded by emphasizing the government’s efforts to communicate the urgency of the matter to the President.
