Sanusi is expected to be at the Africa House in Kano Government House for a mini-durbar ceremony by 10 a.m. today, from where he would proceed to the Nassarawa Emir’s palace.

From there, the Emir will lead the Muslim Jumat prayers (Friday) at the Kano Central mosque located at the palace in Kofar Kudu.

Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf, on Thursday, reappointed Sanusi as the Emir of Kano, four years after he was dethroned by a former governor of the state, Abdullahi Ganduje.

In addition, the governor deposed five emirs appointed by Ganduje and gave them a 48-hour ultimatum to vacate their official residences and palaces.

Yusuf also directed them to hand over all affairs to the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs.

However, the Federal High Court in Kano has issued an order stopping the Kano State Government from enforcing the Kano State Emirate Council Repeal Law.

Justice Mohammed Liman granted the order in an application by Alhaji Aminu Babba Dan Agundi, the Sarkin Dawaki Babba of the Kano Emirate.

In the lawsuit concerning the Emir’s seat, the respondents in the fundamental rights case are the Kano State Government, the House of Assembly, the Speaker, the Attorney-General, the Commissioner of Police, the Inspector-General of Police, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, and the State Security Service.
