Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano State has announced the reinstatement of Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi as the new Emir of Kano. The governor made the announcement after signing the new emirate council law at Government House, Kano, on Thursday, May 23.

The governor signed the law at exactly 5:10pm alongside his deputy, the Speaker of the State Assembly and other principal officers in the government.
