Mallam Sanusi, the Emir of Kano, has reportedly sacked his Personal Private Secretary, Alhaji Isa Sanusi Bayero (aka Isa Pilot), for allegedly leaking details from palace.
Isa severed as Late Alhaji Ado Bayero’s Private Personal Secretary for so many years and kept the position when the current Emir Sanusi took over.
Alhaji Isa was accused of being responsible for the leaked information that led to the suspended investigation of the Emir questionable expenditure by the Kano State House of Assembly and the Kano State Public Complaint and Anti- Corruption Commission.
“The issue of pilot’s sacking has been on for a very long time. He has been accused of revealing useful information that is against the current emir to media and other organizations,” source from the palace revealed as seen on Daily Trust Newspaper.
“Most of the information that media got which led to the negative stories against emir came through the former private secretary.
“From what I heard, the emir has already assigned his responsibilities as private personal secretary to Alhaji Mustapha, the newly turbaned Falakin Kano and an in-law to the late emir Ado Bayero.”
Alhaji Mahe Bashir Wali, the Walin Kano, in his comment noted that the sacked PPS was not a staff of the Kano Emirate, but only worked personally for the late Emir Ado and did same for the current Emir Sanusi.
“What I know is that Isa Pilot is not a staff of Kano emirate council. He has been working for the late emir in personal capacity for a very long time and after his demise, he continued in the same capacity with the present emir.”
