Yesterday, the Kano State House of Assembly set up an eight-man committee to investigate the alleged misconduct of the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi 11. The committee would also investigate allegations of misappropriation of funds of the Kano Emirate Council.The assembly set up the committee after a member representing Nasarawa Local Government Area, Alhaji Ibrahim Gama, raised a motion of urgent public importance on the topic.Gama frowned at the recent comments credited to the emir over the proposed Kano lightrail project and argued:

 “The statement from the emir was capable of tarnishing his image, the government’s and that of the assembly. The emir, during his speech in Kaduna, alleged that the Kano State Governor (Umar Ganduje) and his entourage, including me as the chairman of the House Committee on Works, wasted one month in China seeking for loan to construct rail. The emir’s statement was not true. We spent only four days in China, and our visit was to find out the capability of the company to handle the rail project.”
He took a swipe at Emir Sanusi for sending his daughter to represent him in one of the functions organised by Bring Back Our Girls group in Abuja, describing it as inimical to the tradition of the emirate council.
“There are many responsible emirate council members who could represent him at the programme. This is the first time we are seeing such, in the historical traditional home,” he added.

He held that the mode of dressing of the emir’s daughter, during the programme, was an embarrassment to the emirate council and the tradition of Kano people. He also accused Sanusi of introducing religious issues contrary to the teachings of Islam, saying such things were capable of disgracing the religion.
