Atiku Abubakar, the 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has condemned the federal government’s deployment of soldiers in the ongoing tussle over the throne of the ancient city of Kano.

In a statement posted on his X handle, Atiku described the action as a breach of the 1999 Constitution as Amended and a threat to the peace and security of the state.

The Kano State House of Assembly (KSHA) recently passed the amended Kano State Emirate Council (Repeal) Bill 2024, which repealed the 2019 version that had divided the ancient Kano Emirate into five.

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf subsequently signed the bill into law, in accordance with the powers conferred on him by Section 5(2) of the 1999 Constitution as Amended, and in consultation with the Kingmakers of Kano, reappointed Sanusi Lamido Sanusi (also known as Muhammadu Sanusi II) as the 16th Emir of Kano State.

However, in the early hours of today, at around 5:30 am, the former Emir of Kano, His Majesty Aminu Ado Bayero, backed by federal might, made their way into the Nasarawa Palace of the Kano Emirate while the reappointed Emir, Muhammadu Sanusi II, was at the Gidan Dabo, which is the main residence of the Emir of Kano.

Atiku reminded the Tinubu administration that Kano State is known for its peace and harmony spanning thousands of years and that any attempt to destabilize the peace of the Land of Commerce shall be resisted. He also recalled that when Muhammadu Sanusi II was dethroned on March 9, 2020, Kano forged on in peace without any fracas.
