Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, has reacted as the Kano State Government signed the Kano Emirs Appointment and Deposition Amendment Bill 2019, after its passage by the state assembly.
The bill seeks the creation of four first-class Emirate Councils in the state.
The creation of more emirates will whittle down the influence of the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Muhammadu Sanusi.
Fani-Kayode, “deplored” the attempt by “powers that be” to destroy the Emir of Kano.
In a tweet, the former Aviation Minister wrote: “I have always had strong differences with Emir Sanusi of Kano, from the days we were together in the Progressive Action Movement (PAM) in 2000 up until the time he was Gov. of Central Bank but I have always respected him. I deplore the attempt to destroy him by the powers that be.”
