Emir Sanusi sacks Head of Ganduje village

The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi II, has sacked the younger brother of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, Alhaji Sani Ganduje, as the Village Head of Ganduje in Dawakin Tofa Local Government.

Sanusi announced the removal of Ganduje at a special palace sitting in Kano on Monday.

He said the measure had become necessary in view of what he described as ‘gross negligence of duty’ which the emirate council found disturbing.

“The action was taken because it is an offence for one to smear the good image of the traditional institution.

“The Village Head was stripped of his turban as his offence bordered on gross official misconduct which the palace was all out to jettison for the sake of safeguarding the credibility of the revered institution,” he said.

The Emir stressed the need for all traditional rulers in the state to exhibit a high sense of responsibility in all their dealings.

He also urged all traditional rulers in the Emirate to be disciplined and shun acts capable of denting the image of the institution
