The 11th Emir of Kano, Malam Muhammadu Sanusi has today suspended another son of late Emir Ado Bayero and District Head of Takai Local Government, Alhaji Bashir Ado Bayero, over “disloyalty”.
The district head that was suspended was also directed to appear before the palace disciplinary committee to decide his faith of judgement
In replacement Sanusi has appointed Alhaji Mahmud Shattima as an interim administrator for the beqd of district, pending the reports of the disciplinary committee.
Bashir Ado Bayero isn’t the first son of the late emir to be stripped of their position since the demise of their father but the second one. The first was the Ciroman Kano, Alhaji Sanusi Ado Bayero, who was removed on October 28, 2015 for a similar offence.
Daily Trust reports on Sunday that the Emirate Council’s Chief of Staff, Alhaji Munir Sanusi, said Bayero’s suspension followed his disrespect to the emir during one of the palace sittings.
He said, “The suspended district head came to the palace one day to seek permission to travel to Saudi Arabia for medical check-up and after the emir granted his request, he then submitted the name of the person he wanted to supervise the district in his absence.
“But the emir rejected the name and directed him to notify the office of Wakilin Gabas of the trip so that he would appoint someone to supervise the district. It was at that point that Bayero showed disrespect to the emir in the presence of everybody, including the Dogarai,” he added.
