Kano State governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje assured that, the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission would go on with the process of probing the former Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, because the effort to stop the probe was quashed by a competent court of law.
“When we wanted to bring on board, reform to our traditional institution, the former Emir did not cooperate with the process of reform. The process was truncated, so the only option for him was to find his way out. And that was what happened,” he reminded.
He made this known at the media interactive session held at Africa House, Government House, Kano, Monday.
Explaining that, when the process started, there were some legal issued that slowed the process, “That time there was this so-called Kano Elders Forum, that tried to also frustrate the reform process. Their case was squashed by another court of competent jurisdiction.”
In the absence of all legal issues, as observed by the governor, the process has already been concluded, “And it is the sole aim of trickling down development to other parts of the state, particularly the communities that house the new Emirates, that they were created,” he said.
After making explanation on the absence of legal issues truncating the reform process then, he didn’t mince words in assuring the public and encouraging the state Anti-Corruption Agency, that “Our state Anti-Corruption Agency will continue probing the former Emir over the issues he has with them.
When he took them to court to stop the Agency from probing him, the case was quashed. So they will continue probing him according to the set down law.”
