Following the move by Kano State House of Assembly to investigate Emir of Kano and former CBN Governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi for alleged corruption, and subsequent accusation that he, Kabiru Rurum, speaker of the Kano State House of Assembly, collected money to trash the investigation of the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, the honorable speaker of the assembly has resigned.
The former speaker, was accused of collecting N100 million from business mogul Aliko Dangote but failed to share the money to the members, an allegation he denied while threatening to sue an online media organisation that first published the report.
It was gathered that the move to investigate the Emir for alleged corruption, was stopped alongside Kano’s anti-corruption agency who also suspended its investigation of the monarch after prominent Nigerians, including Acting President Osinbajo, intervened.
According to NAN, Mr. Rurum, resigned on Monday in a letter read at plenary by the Deputy Speaker, Ibrahim Chidariof, who presided over the sitting on Monday.
The deputy speaker, who read the letter, said Mr. Rurum resigned to protect his image due to allegations bordering on corruption leveled against him by some of the members. .
It was reported shortly that after the letter was read and accepted, the lawmakers elected the Majority Leader of the Assembly, Abdullahi Atta, as the new Speaker.
