The Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, on Monday revealed that he does not regret his decision to reform the Kano State traditional system, which led to the dethronement of the former Governor of the CBN, Muhammed Sanusi the 2nd, as the Emir of Kano.
Governor Ganduje who spoke during the celebration of Democracy Day said that the creation of additional four emirates was one of the best achievements he has had during his administration, which had brought development and has a positive effect on the lives of people.
Governor Ganduje explained that former Emir, Muhammed Sanusi lost his throne because he refused to be part of the process of the traditional reforms which is seen to be in the best interest of the people.
He said the former Emir Sanusi refused to be part of the reforms and has to go for the reforms to be completed and now the new emirates have come to stay.
He also concurs that some legal issues that the former Emir as well as that of the elders loyal to him brought up were to serve as an obstacle in the speedy completion of the reforms.
He also said but now there are no legal issues in court regarding the traditional system reforms.
Explaining the alleged 2.2 billion naira land scam involving the dethroned emir, he said since the court has given the go-ahead for the investigation to commence, the state anti-graft agency will start investigating the former emir according to the law.
On his recent outcry by the Federal Government to ban foreign herdsmen from entering the country, Governor Ganduje maintained that he stood by his decision and hope that the Federal Government will see a reason to ban them from coming into the country.
