In the midst of the ongoing leadership dispute within the Kano Emirate, the 16th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has taken a significant step by making his first appointment. Sanusi, who was recently reinstated after the removal of his predecessor, Ado Bayero, has named Hamisu Sani as the new ward head of Janguza in the Dala local government area.

The appointment comes just days after Sanusi’s return to the throne, signaling his commitment to governance and community development. As a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Sanusi brings a wealth of experience to his role as emir.

In his directive to the newly appointed ward head, Sanusi emphasized the importance of fostering peaceful coexistence among the area’s subjects. He urged Hamisu Sani to actively contribute to the overall development of the state. This call for unity and progress reflects the emir’s vision for a harmonious and prosperous Kano.

Yesterday, dignitaries from various sectors paid homage to the 16th emir at the main palace. Among them were district heads, religious leaders from the Ansarulddeen and Tijjanniya sects, and traders representing Kano’s bustling textile market (Kantin Kwari) and commodities market (Kasuwar Singer). Their presence underscores the significance of Sanusi’s leadership and the expectations placed upon him.

Sanusi II’s reinstatement followed the Kano State House of Assembly’s repeal and Governor Abba Yusuf’s assent to the Kano State Emirate Councils (Repeal) Bill 2024. The legal process paved the way for his return, despite the legal standoff arising from the deposed Emir Bayero’s attempt to reclaim his position.

As the emirate navigates this period of transition, all eyes are on Emir Sanusi II. His appointment of Hamisu Sani signals a proactive approach to governance and a commitment to serving the people of Kano. The ward head’s responsibilities extend beyond administrative duties; he is entrusted with promoting peace, unity, and development at the grassroots level.

In the coming days, Janguza and the entire Kano Emirate will closely observe the actions and decisions of their new ward head. As the state moves forward, the emir’s leadership will undoubtedly shape the future of Kano.
