Buhari orders the removal of Emir Sanusi from the throne – Kwankwaso


Former Kano Governor Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of ordering the dethronement of former Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II.

He also denied the claim by Kano State Governorment that, his administration queried Emir Sanusi three times

Senator Kwankwaso stated these while speaking in an interview with the Hausa service of the BBC on Wednesday.

The former Governor in the interview monitored by our correspondent in Kaduna, also faulted the banishment of the deposed Emir, saying he (Sanusi) ought to have been allowed to chose wherever he pleases to stay.

According to him: “Let me begin by saying today is a very sad day in Kano, Nigeria and by extension in the entire world, because His Highness the Emir of Kano (Sanusi) is a global personality.

“What we have seen is very sad because there is no responsible government that is supposed to take the kind of step taken by Kano State Governorment by dethroning Emir Muhammad Sanusi II.

“But, the big issue is that, as enshrined by section 35 of the Nigerian Constitution, even if you dethrone someone as Emir, you ought to allow chose wherever he so pleases to stay, that is even when you follow due process to dethrone him.
