JUST IN... Gov El-Rufai meets with deposed Emir Sanusi

The Kano State chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has urged the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai to create a new emirate for the deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II.

Alhaji Shehu Maigari, the deputy state party chairman of the APC in a statement on Monday urged Governor El-Rufai to appoint the deposed emir as the traditional ruler of a new emirate in Kaduna.

Miagari who was reacting to the appointed Sanusi as the chancellor of the Kaduna State University and his earlier appointed as vice chairman of the board of the state investment promotion agency (KADIP) also suggested that the new emirate could start from Rigachikun to Kasuwar Magani in the state.

“Your Excellency, Governor Nasir el-Rufai, this is somebody who worked against the success of APC, your dear party, coming out openly to criticise your mentor (Mr. President) with no concrete reasons or justifications but yet you have decided to treat him like a hero.

“Sir, APC Kano Chapter is strongly advising you to create additional emirate in your state like New Kaduna Emirate Council, probably to start from Rigachikun to Kasuwar Magani and install your hero there, so that he can work effectively for his dear party (PDP) over there, instead of giving him those ceremonial positions,” he said.
