The 16th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, on Sunday, presided over the first emirate council meeting of district heads and senior traditional council members at the Gidan Rumfa palace.

Sanusi finally assumed the superior responsibility of the emirate by presiding over the maiden edition of the expanded council meeting after his reinstatement on Friday by Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf.

With no fewer than 40 district heads and significant figures among the senior council members renewing their allegiance to the new emir, the raging tension around the emirship in the state has finally fizzled out.
