Kano Assembly sets up panel to probe Emir Sanusi

The Kano State House of Assembly has set up an eight-man ad hoc committee to investigate the allegations levelled against the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II.

Sanusi has been accused of mismanaging N4 billion he inherited from his predecessor, Ado Bayero.

The palace has since denied the allegation.

Ibrahim Gama, the member representing Nasarawa constituency of the state, on Wednesday moved a motion to probe the monarch.

Gama said some of the allegations against the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), ought to be looked into.

He listed them as spending funds without the approval of the Governor of Kano, Umar Ganduje, attacking President Muhammadu Buhari’s polices and sending his daughter to represent him without wearing full traditional regalia.

The house adopted the motion after it was put to voice vote by the Speaker, Alhassan Rurum.

Labaran Abdul Madar, the chief whip of the house, will chair the committee.
