Three Kano princes have rejected Governor Ganduje’s offer to head the new emirate carved out from Emir Sanusi’s kingdom.According to Daily Nigerian, the Kano Governor had a meeting with Wamban Kano, Aminu Bayero; Chiroman Kano, Nasiru Bayero and district heads of Rano, Gaya and Karaye at the Government House on Thursday night who rejected rejected the offer.
It was learnt that Chiroman Kano Nasiru Bayero who was first given the offer to serve as Emir of Bichi rejected it out-rightly before it was passed on to his elder brother, Aminu Bayero, who also turned it down. Galadiman Kano, Abbas Sanusi, the father of the state chairman of All Progressives Congress, APC, Abdullahi Abbas also rejected the offer.
“When the offer was made to Galadima, he contacted Emir Sanusi, notifying him about the decision. The emir told him the choice is now left for the Dabo clan to be parties to the desecration of their heritage or be parties to the defense of their heritage,” a royal source quoted the emir as saying.“From all indications, it is unlikely if Galadima will accept the offer. He too is angry with the creation of more emirates in Kano.”
