Sanusi was questioned by ‘Kwankwaso’s govt three times

THE Kano State Government on Tuesday gave more reasons it deposed Muhammad Sanusi as Emir of Kano.

It said Sanusi was questioned three times by the administration of former governor Rabiu Kwankwaso for disrespecting tradition. This is apart from being at loggerhead with Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje in the past three years.

Yakasai said: “No matter how highly-placed the emir is, constitutionally, he is at the mercy of the governor. If you remove sentiment and emotion from the issue, you will know that emir is an appointee of the governor. There are certain expectations from the Emir and part of it is to respect the constituted authority and he has a limit to which he has been crossing for three years.

He said Sanusi was not sacked for allegation of corruption but on the grounds of disobeying the law.

“Sanusi always goes to the gallery to talk about issues to get the applause. At the tail end of the administration of former governor of Kano, Rabiu Kwankwaso reintroduced ban of street begging and that time Sanusi was accommodating the Alimajiris in his palace, feeding them and on that particular issue, he was given four queries for disobeying him.”
