Group uncovers alleged plot by Ganduje to transfer emir Sanusi to Bichi emirate

A Civil Society Organization, under the auspices of The Renaissance Coalition has uncovered an alleged plot by Kano State governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje to swap swap the emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi ll with emir of Bichi, Aminu Ado Bayero.
The group, in a statement signed by its spokesman, Ibrahim A. Waiya on Thursday, also alleged that part of the plot is that, in the event the emir resist the swap move, he would be deposed.
The group lamented that “despite a subsisting court ruling, which had ordered the maintenance of status quo pending conclusion of the matter before it, and even the contentious law which was maliciously and hurriedly made, and is being challenged before the court, has not explicitly provided for such swap.”
This group also warned that the move is  very dangerous that is likely to cause violent unrest in the polity, adding that  the alleged plot also shows extreme desperation on the part of the governor to advance a personal  vendetta at the expense of the peace and wellbeing of the citizens he swore to protect.
The group therefore, as responsible called on the governor to desist from going on with the alleged plot and such similar action, which according to it, “is capable of jeopardizing the relative peace we enjoy in the State.”
“We also call on the security agencies, political leaders, the respected elders, venerated Ulamas, intellectuals, opinion leaders and any person or people with the means to reach out to advise the Governor to desist from such act,” the statement reads in part.
“We deem it our responsibility to do everything possible within our power to advocate for the peace and wellbeing of the citizens, by calling on all well meaning individuals and the Federal Government, to call the governor to order, to seize and desist from any further hostile action against the Kano emirate and the person of the Emir of Kano Mallam Muhammadu Sanusi ll.

“We believe in the adage better safe than sorry, we always want to be on the right path and the right side of history, expressing our objective opinions and engage relevant authorities for  appropriate and timely action to prevent societal disasters. We decided not to wait and be reactive but to be proactive because of the perceived heavy toll the repercussions of the alleged action of the Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, awaits the people of Kano, if the alleged plot is materialized and remains unchecked,”
However, the group said, “in the event that the Governor refuses to heed the good counsel and goes ahead to actualize  the evilly hatched dastardly agenda, we would be left with no any other option but to call on the federal Government to declare a state of emergency in Kano State as soon as the he makes the  pronouncement of the alleged plot, in order to save Kano State from the consequences of the Governor’s action.
"We wish to use this medium to remind the people and  Kano State Government on the consequences that occurred when similar action was attempted against the then Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero in 1981. 
We are of the strong belief that, today if such action is attempted may likely be the worst  because of increased social and economic stress which are already keeping people on edge, ready to erupt as well as a much higher restless youth population in the State,” the group warned.
The group therefore called on the  Federal Government to do everything possible to prevail on the  Governor Ganduje to forestall the alleged plot of swapping the Emir  Sanusi, for peace to continue to reign in the commercial state.
Recalled that on May 8, governor Ganduje signed into law, the creation of four additional first-class Emirates, allegedly to whittle down the power of emir Sanusi.
Crisis between the two leaders broke out when Ganduje accused Sanusi of supporting his main challenger,  Abba Kabiru Yusuf of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the March 23 supplementary governorship election.
