JUST IN: I’ve accepted my fate – Kano dethroned Emir

By News Desk

One of the five emirs dethroned by the Kano State Government, Aliyu Abdulkadir, former Emir of Gaya, has announced his acceptance of his removal from office, describing the sack as an act of God.

Abdulkadir, who announced his decision amid violent demonstration by youths against the new development, said that his stance was to sustain the peace and harmony that had existed across the state.

The former Emir is among the five first-class kings who were affected by the repeal of the law which balkanised Kano Emirate and elevated them.

The immediate past Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, had appointed new Emirs in 2019 and dethroned Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi as Emir of Kano the following year.

Reacting to the action of the governor in an interview with newsmen on Sunday, the dethroned monarch said he bore no grudge against anybody and had no plan to challenge the action in court.

He said, “Nobody will feel happy about this development, but it is Allah that made you [on the throne], and everything has time.

“Allah has predestined that this would happen long before we were born, therefore we do not hold grudge against anybody. It is the will of Allah and we have accepted it wholeheartedly.

“This is how God wanted it, and it must be done that way. We have no intention of going to court. We have accepted it in good fate. We thank Allah.”

The monarch acceptance came amid protests by youths who demanded that the governor reversed law to restore the dethroned monarchs.

Meanwhile, Ado Bayero, former Emir of Kano, has maintained his stance against the action of the governor, insisting that the law must take its course.
