Muhammadu Sanusi II Nigerian lawmakers probe outspoken Emir of Kano

Gama said some of the allegations against the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), ought to be looked into.

The Kano State Police Command has arraigned a renowned Islamic cleric, Shiek Nasiru Bazallah, before a Magistrate Court in the state for allegedly insulting the Emir of Kano, Mallam Lamido Sanusi.

A motion by Ibrahim Gama (Nasarawa council), frowed at comments credited to the emir on the proposed Kano light rail project.

It was gathered that the Kano state Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission was investigating the Kano Emirate Council as a body over alleged misappropriation of up to N6 billion, but not Sanusi as an individual.

But reacting to the development through a statement on Friday in Abuja, Comrade Frank, urged Governor Ganduje to overlook some of the perceived excesses of Malam Sanusi who he described as a kind of "new generation Emir".

"The emir's statement was not true; we spent only four days in China, and our visit was to find out the capability of the company to handle the rail project".

Mr. Gama insisted, "the statement from the Emir is capable of tarnishing his [Ganduje's] image, the government and that of the Assembly".

Sanusi had come under public criticism for sending his daughter, Shahida, to represent him at public functions instead of royal aides, as is the usual protocol. "This is the first time we are seeing such in the historical traditional home", he added.

He also accused Sanusi of "intentionally attacking President Muhammadu Buhari whenever he got an opportunity to speak at a public gathering", which he said contravened the culture of the traditional ruler.

The house adopted the motion after it was put to voice vote by the Speaker, Alhassan Rurum, who then set up the eight-man committee, chaired by Labaran Abdul Madari, Chief Whip of the house, to investigate the allegations.

The council has denied the allegations.

Meanwhile, in a communiqué issued at the end of the joint meeting of the Board of Trustees and the National Executive Council of Arewa Consultative Forum, in Kaduna, the group also reaffirmed its belief in and commitment to the unity of the North and the peaceful coexistence of its people.
