Northern Youths Write Tinubu To Stop Anarchy.

Amid the ongoing power tussle in the Kano Emirate, the leadership of the Northern Youth Assembly, known as Majalisar Matasan Arewa, has written an open letter to President Bola Tinubu urging him to be wary of some people in his administration planning for anarchy in Kano State.

The letter, dated and signed by the group’s President, Dr. Ali Idris, and its Secretary General, Dr. Garba Abdulhafiz, was copied to the United Nations Office, Abuja European Union Embassy, the Economic Community of West African States, British High Commission, Abuja, among others, adding that, the state’s change in the Emirate Law was a product of the law passed by the State House of Assembly, stating that any attempt to subvert such law would only result in chaos.

It also said, the process to exercise the constitutional right may include making new laws, amending the existing laws and repealing the existing laws, adding that, the State House of Assembly equally exercised such legislative powers by repealing the same law and dissolved the newly created four additional emirates in the state, while, the Executive Governor of Kano State, Abba Yusuf, equally assented to the new repealed law.

The youth group said, each of the two state assemblies performed their constitutional and legislative functions, as they deemed fit and so should stand, stressing that, the move to forcefully impose the deposed 15th Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero , over encroachment on the constitutional democratic practices, undermining the authorities of the sub-national and federating units, and a clear interference in the exercise of their constitutional powers.

The youths said, the ugly development is not only an embarrassment to the Federal government, and further warned not to sabotage “democratic authorities, by usurping the constitutional rights, authorities and powers of the sub-national democratic structure, stressing that, Governor Abba Yusuf had reinstated Muhammadu Sanusi II as the 16th Emir of Kano.
