Falana Says Court Nullification Of Sanusi’s Reinstatement As Emir Of Kano Confusing [VIDEO]

Falana Says Court Nullification Of Sanusi’s Reinstatement As Emir Of Kano Confusing [VIDEO]—-Renowned Lawyer and human rights activist, Femi Falana has queried the legal justifications for the nullification of Sanusi Lamido’s reinstatement as Emir.

 

Falana maintains that the court ruling on the nullification of Sanusi’s reinstatement as Emir is confusing.

 

He explained that the law which the court said it cannot declare invalid, empowered the state governor to reinstate Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.

 

Falana said this during an interview with Arise TV shared on Friday.

According to Falana what the court did say was that, the order made by the judge on the 24th of May, was served on the 1st and 4th defendants (governor and the attorney general) on the 27th of May. He said that the judge wrongfully assumed that the governor and the AG had knowledge of the order because the order was reported on social media.

“Sanusi Lamido Sanusi was not said to have disobeyed any order, so if the order affected them, it ought to have been put on notice.

“But what the court is saying, ‘I cannot declare invalid the repeal law made by the House of Assembly’, and that repeal law empowers the governor to reinstate Sanusi Lamido Sanusi. So the order is a bit confusing.”
