The Kano State House of Assembly has set up an 8-man committee to investigate the allegations levelled against the Emir of Kano, Mallam Muhammadu Sanusi II, bordering on alleged misappropriation of funds.

The Kano State House of Assembly has launched an investigation against him over alleged abuse of office and improper conduct.

The House on Wednesday, constituted an 8-man committee to investigate eight offences allegedly committed by the emir.

The committee was constituted following a motion by Alhaji Ibrahim Ahmad Gama, Nassarawa Constituency.

The 8-man committee was headed by a member representing Warawa, Alhaji Labaran Abdul.

The allegations are:

1. Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and the state legislators are mismanaging the state resources while on an official visit to China.

2. Making remarks in Kaduna on the proposed Kano light rail project which had tarnished his (Gama) image, the government and the assembly as well.

3. Allegation by the emir that the state governor and his entourage wasted one month in China seeking for loan to construct the light rail in the state.

On the above allegations, Gama said

“First of all, we did not spend one month in China. We only spent four days and our mission was to find out the capability of the company to handle the rail project but not to secure any loan as alleged by the emir.”

He added that the emir's allegation had caused serious embarrassment to him (the lawmaker), the state government and the House of Assembly within and outside the state.

Other allegations levelled against Sanusi include:

1. Intentionally attacking President Muhammadu Buhari whenever he got an opportunity to speak at a public gathering. He said this had contravened the culture of traditional institution.

2. Embezzlement of funds belonging to the emirate council.

3. Tarnishing the image of the emirate by assigning his daughter to represent him at a public function, introducing strange religious issues and involvement in politics.

4. Downgrading the honour of the Kano emirate council by assigning his daughter to represent him at a function organised by the #BringBackourGirls group in Abuja, saying it was against the emirate's tradition.

On this Gama said:

“There are many responsible members of Kano emirate council members that can represent the emir at the event instead of his daughter. This is the first time we are witnessing this kind of representation in the history of Kano emirate council.

“The mode of dressing of the Emir's daughter at the event was an embarrassment not only to the emirate council but the entire people of Kano,”

he lamented.

It would also be recalled that the Kano state Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission is currently investigating Kano emirate council over alleged embezzlement of over N6 billion in three years.
