The reinstatement of Muhammadu Sanusi II as the 16th Emir of Kano has been nullified by a Federal High Court sitting in Kano. This ruling was delivered by Justice Abdullahi Muhammad Liman on Thursday. The court's decision not only nullifies Sanusi's reinstatement but also invalidates all actions taken following this controversial move.

Justice Liman clarified that every step taken by the government in this matter is nullified and rendered invalid. However, the nullification does not affect the validity of the repealed Emirates Law itself but specifically targets the actions taken by the Governor, including the assenting to the Law and the reappointment of Sanusi.

I have listened to the audio of the governor both in Hausa and English after assenting to the Law, and I am convinced that the respondents are aware of the order of maintaining status quo pending the hearing and determination of the motions on notice in the court.

“Having been satisfied that the respondents are aware of the court order, the court in exercise of its powers set aside an action because it is in violation of the court’s order, I think it is a very serious matter for anyone to flout the orders of the court and go scot free with it.”

He said the catastrophic situation could have been averted if the respondents followed due processes by complying with the court order, which would still have allowed them to carry out their assignments.

He noted that the respondents however decided to act according to their whims and caprices, a situation which he said landed them in a serious mess.
