The Kano State House of Assembly has dropped its investigation into the alleged misappropriation of funds and other infractions by the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi.


 

Speaker of the State Assembly, Rt. Hon. Kabiru Rurum, announced this during plenary on Monday.

Rurum said the action followed the intervention of some prominent Nigerians.

The Speaker disclosed that the State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, sent a letter to the lawmakers to appeal that the exercise be put on hold.

In his letter, Governor Ganduje said he was calling for the investigation to be dropped as a result of interventions by highly-placed personalities.

According to the letter, the personalities include the acting President Yemi Osinbajo; party leaders; former heads of state Ibrahim Babangida and Abdulsalami Abubakar; Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar; and businessman and indigene of the state, Aliko Dangote and Aminu Dantata.

Ganduje said although he was reluctant to interfere in the activities of the state’s legislative arm, he appealed to the lawmakers to ”temper justice with mercy” and allow peace prevail.

The governor said there had been a meeting in Kaduna over the matter ”at the instance of some governors.”

”There is no gain saying (the fact) that the Emir Muhammadu Sunusi II has admitted all his faults and mistakes and agreed to make adjustment,” he stated.

The House subsequently resolved to drop the probe.
