Bayero Reverses Father On Contentious Kano Stool

KANO – Aminu Bayero, the Emir of Kano, on Monday re-installed Aminu Babba Dan-Agundi as a member of the Kano Emirate Coun­cil, barely 17 years after he was deposed by the reign­ing emir’s father, Ado Bay­ero.

Sarkin Dawaki Maituta was sacked from the council by the late Emir of Kano over alleged insubordination in 2003, and lost a legal battle to reclaim the stool up to the Supreme Court.

The Apex Court, in its unanimous ruling by Jus­tice Mary Odili on June 5, 2020, held that Dan-Agun­di’s removal by the late Bayero from the positions of Sarkin Dawaki Maituta and District head of Gab­asawa Local Government Area was in order.

The dramatic twist in Dan-Agundi’s reinstate­ment to the Emirate Coun­cil despite court verdict was contained in a letter signed by Dan Rimin Kano, Sarki Waziri and addressed to Usman Alhaji, Secretary To the State Government.

Uba Abdullahi, the Infor­mation Officer attached to SSG’s office, told newsmen in Kano that “the SSG re­ceived the letter on July 8, 2020 and has forwarded it to the executive governor and we are waiting for his approval”.
