The emirate-drama unfolding in the ancient city of Kano between Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and Emir Lamido Sanusi is still raging.
The latest, according to YES INTERNATIONAL! Magazine findings, is the new move adopted by some Kano kingmakers, who obviously are against the balkanisation of their decades-old emirate.
To halt the complete decimation of the emirate, they have allegedly engaged the services of seven Senior Advocates of Nigeria and 17 other lawyers to challenge Ganduje and the Kano House of Assembly in court over the creation of more Emirates in Kano.
Among the lawyers said to have been engaged for the titanic legal battle ahead are:
1-Prince Lateef Fegbemi, SAN, FCIArb,(UK)
2- AB Mahmoud, OON, SAN, FCIArb, (UK)
3- Adeniyi Akintola, SAN
4- Suraj Sa’eda, SAN
5- Hakeem O. Afolabi, SAN
6- Paul Usoro, SAN
7- Nassir Abdu Dangiri, SAN
8- Maliki Kuliya Umar Esq
9- Nureini S. Jimoh Esq
10- Dr. Nasiru Aliyu Esq
11- Sagir Gezawa Esq
12- Muritala O. Abdulrasheq Esq
13- Aminu S. Gadanya Esq
14- Ismail Abdulaziz Esq
15- Rashidi Isamotu Esq
16- Oseni Sefullahi Esq
17- Ibrahim Abdullahi Esq
18- Haruna Saleh Zakariyya Esq
19- Auwal A. Dabo Esq
20- Badamasi Sulaiman Esq
21- O. O. Samuel Esq
22- Fariha Sani Abdullahi
23- Yahaya Isah Abdulrasheed, ACIArb, (UK)
24- Amira Hamisu Esq.
The kingmakers behind this are said to be Madakin Kano, Yusuf Nabahani; Makaman Kano, Sarki Ibrahim; Sarkin Dawaki Maituta, Bello Abubakar and; Sarkin Bai, Mukhtar Adnan.
Ganduje and Sanusi are visibly not the best of friends. And this was allegedly compounded following the latter’s tacit support for the PDP candidate in the governorship election in the state as against APC which the former flew their flag to secure a very controversial victory.
