The removal of Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II from his position as the Emir of Kano by Governor Ganduje’s government sent shockwaves through Nigeria and beyond.

This event, which occurred in recent times, drew parallels with history as it echoed the dethronement of Emir Muhammadu Sanusi I 57 years ago by the then northern Nigeria regional government led by Ahmadu Bello.

The struggle for the Sanusi family to break free from this cycle of dethronement and reinstatement has become a poignant narrative that symbolizes the clash between tradition, power, and the quest for redemption.

The history of the Sanusi Emirs of Kano is deeply intertwined with the political landscape of northern Nigeria. Emir Muhammadu Sanusi I, the grandfather of Emir Sanusi 11, was dethroned as the 11th Emir of Kano in 1963 by Ahmadu Bello’s government.

This event marked a significant turning point in the history of the Sanusi dynasty and left a lasting impact on the family.

Fast-forward to the present day, and we witness a similar event unfolding with the removal of Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II. The parallels between these two incidents highlight a recurring cycle that the Sanusi family is determined to break.

The removal of Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II by Governor Ganduje’s government was met with mixed reactions from the public. While some supported the decision citing reasons of insubordination and political interference, others viewed it as an attack on traditional institutions and a violation of the Emir’s rights.

The contentious relationship between Governor Ganduje and Emir Sanusi added fuel to the fire, leading to a dramatic climax with the Emir’s removal from office, but it widely condemned across the globe.

For Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II, the removal from office was not just a personal setback, but a continuation of a family legacy marred by dethronement.

The Emir’s determination to end this cycle and prevent it from becoming a curse to his family, speaks volumes about his resilience and commitment to upholding the honour and dignity of the Sanusi dynasty.

By fighting for his reinstatement, Emir Sanusi II is not only seeking redemption for himself but also for his predecessors who faced similar challenges in the past.
From history, it was the outspoken nature of the first Sanusi that caused his removal, same history was repeated in Emir Sanusi 11.

The dream of reinstating Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II has been a long-standing aspiration for the once dethroned king. The desire to reclaim his position as the Emir of Kano symbolizes a quest for justice, legitimacy, and the restoration of honour to the Sanusi family.

The reinstatement of Emir Sanusi II would not only mark a personal victory for him but also a symbolic triumph over the forces that sought to diminish the legacy of the Sanusi dynasty.

In a stunning turn of events, the city of Kano was engulfed in jubilation as news spread rapidly that Emir Sanusi Mohammed 11 had been reinstated to his position.

The former Emir had been removed from his post for being vocal about various social and political issues, causing a wave of controversy and unrest in the region. However, his reinstatement brought joy and relief to many of his supporters, residents of Kano and the entire world.

Emir Sanusi Mohammed, known for his outspoken views on corruption, education, and women’s rights, had garnered a large following both within and outside the traditional spheres of influence in Nigeria.

His removal had been met with protests and criticism from various quarters, with many seeing it as a suppression of freedom of speech and an attack on progressive voices in the region.

The reinstatement of Emir Sanusi Mohammed came as a surprise to many, signaling a possible shift in the political landscape of Kano.

The streets were filled with celebratory crowds, chanting slogans of support and waving flags in honour of their beloved leader. The atmosphere was electric, with a sense of hope and optimism palpable in the air.

For many Nigerians , the return of Emir Sanusi Mohammed symbolized a victory for truth, justice, and progressive values. His voice had been sorely missed during his absence, and his reinstatement is seen as a triumph of the will of the people over political machinations.

As night fell over the city, fireworks lit up the sky, and the sounds of music and celebration echoed through the streets. It was a moment of unity and joy, as people from all walks of life came together to rejoice in the return of a leader they believed in.

It was not a religious event, as Christians, Muslims, traditional worshipers and pagans all gathered to celebrate the return of the cerebral King

The reinstatement of Emir Sanusi Mohammed marked a new chapter for Kano, one filled with renewed hope and the promise of positive change.

As the city basked in the glow of jubilation, it was clear that the spirit of resilience and progressiveness that defined Emir Sanusi Mohammed’s tenure would continue to inspire and uplift the people of Africa, Nigeria and Kano for years to come.

The removal of Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II and the subsequent reinstatement have brought to light the complex interplay between tradition, power, and the quest for redemption in Nigeria.

As Emir Sanusi II ended the cycle which would have become a curse, by his officially reinstatement as Emir by Governor Abba Yusuf during a ceremonial event at the government house last Friday.

After the Kano house of assembly nullified the law that led to Sanusi’s deposition and exile by former governor Abdullahi Ganduje in 2020, thereby clearing the path for Sanusi’s reinstatement and the removal of Aminu Bayero as Emir of Kano.

Emir Mohammed Sanusi 11 has set his family free from becoming a curse, and cancel recurring history woes from being part of their legacy.
