Emir of Kano, Ado Bayero22 February 2014, Kano – The Kano Emirate Council has called on the Federal Government to review the suspension of the CBN Governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi in the interest of equity, justice and fairness.

A member of the Emirate Council and Wali of Kano, Alhaji Mahe Bashir-Wali, made the call while briefing newsmen in Kano on Friday.

He said “it is our view that the Federal Government should, as a matter of urgency, review this issue by following laid down procedures in the suspension of public officer for equity, justice and fairness.

“As a law abiding organisation, we believe that adherence to the rule of law is paramount and important to any government, more importantly a democratically elected government which preaches and ensures adherence to the rule of law.
