Kano Emirship tussles: Don’t allow anybody violate court orders – Buhari’s ally tells Tinubu


A strong political ally of former President Buhari and the Chairman of Arewa Media Group, Alhaji AbdulMajid Danbilki Kwamanda, has cautioned President Ahmad Bola Tinubu against allowing anyone to hide under state laws and violate court orders that halted the reinstatement of Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II.


AbdulMajid Danbilki Kwamanda, a prominent voice in Nigerian politics, told the media in Kano on Monday that the Kano State Government’s actions in violating the Federal High Court order stopping the reinstatement of Muhammadu Sanusi II set a bad precedent that could affect everyone.


“We cannot understand why the people who celebrated and effectively used the courts to maintain their government now stand firmly against a substantive court order preventing them from carrying out illegality.”


The Chairman of Arewa Media Group noted that, politics aside, “the insistence that the reinstated Emir must stay and continue parading himself as the authentic Emir of Kano violates the rule of law and constitutes a threat to the nation’s constitution and general well-being.”


To this end, the political ally of former President Buhari called on President Ahmad Bola Tinubu to urgently intervene in the matter to bring peace and stability to the state.


“Although I’m a politician, honestly, this time around, politics aside, there is great danger in what the Kano State Government is doing. The court injunction must be respected to allow peace to reign.”


“Why is controversy associated with the reinstated Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II? Look at how he was removed from office by former President Goodluck Jonathan and the reasons for his removal. Now, are you returning him to continue anarchy in Kano or what?”


Danbilki Kwamanda urged President Tinubu to act accordingly as a respecter of law and order, a reputation he is known for.


“You should not allow this bad precedent to be set during your tenure. You should ensure that everyone respects the law by stopping the reinstatement.”
