Kano State House of Assembly yesterday set up an eight-man committee to investigate the alleged misconduct of the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi 11.The assembly set up the committee after a member representing Nasarawa Local Government Area, Alhaji Ibrahim Gama, raised a motion of urgent public importance on the topic.
Gama frowned at the recent comments credited to the emir over the proposed Kano lightrail project and argued: “The statement from the emir was capable of tarnishing his image, the government’s and that of the assembly. He also accused Sanusi of introducing religious issues contrary to the teachings of Islam, saying such things were capable of disgracing the religion.Gama further accused the emir of involving himself in political issues, misappropriation of emirate council’s funds and making statements against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Gama also faulted Emir Sanusi for sending his daughter to represent him in one of the functions organised by the Bring Back Our Girls Group (BBOG) in Abuja, describing it as inimical to the tradition of the Emirate Council.
“There are many responsible Emirate Council members who could have represented him at the programme. This is the first time we are seeing such in the historical traditional home,” he added.
According to Gama, the mode of dressing by the Emir’s daughter during the Programme, was an embarrassment to the Emirate Council and the tradition of Kano people.
