EMIR OF KANO MUHAMMAD SANUSI THE SECOND DEBUNKS CLAIMS HE SPENT 6 BILLION NAIRA EMIRATES FUND SINCE ASSUMPTION OF OFFICE.

Worried by the allegations of financial impropriety against the Emir of Kano, MUHAMMADU SANUSI-the second, the Emirate Council has refuted all allegations, stressing that they were deliberate attempts to smear the image of the Council.

At a press conference yesterday in Kano, a senior councilor of the Emirate Council, Alhaji MAHE BASHIR WALI, who is the custodian of the Council’s treasury and provided some details of the expenditure, explained that Emir SANUSI inherited 1.9 billion naira and not 4 billion naira as stated in some media reports.

On whether the Emir was involved in unnecessary trips to embezzle council’s money, WALI said the council chartered air flight twice for his highness in September 2014 to Sokoto, when the Emir paid a traditional homage to the Sultan of Sokoto after his turbaning as Emir of Kano and the Council spent four million six hundred and fifty one thousand naira.

On allegations of the purchase of luxurious bulletproof vehicles, WALI said two bullet proof vehicles were purchased at one hundred and forty two million-eight hundred thousand naira based on the advice and approval of the state government He added that this was as a result of an attack on the late Emir of Kano Alhaji ADO BAYERO on his way from Murtala Muhammad Mosque to the palace.
