Kano State Dethrones Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi

What a pity – Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, has been cut out by the governor. His sin? Telling the governor to serve his people better. You see why Nigeria has no chance: no one can freely challenge people in power because of fear of retribution. Like I remind some people: do not re-share some of my contents because if they see those contents, they can deny your contracts. Some of us do not live on those and can freely share our minds: Nigeria does not inspire, most times. I wish Sanusi good luck; maybe, it is time for him to setup a private equity firm which can focus on investing in Kano.

The Kano State Government said on Monday that it dethroned the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, because of insubordination.

Usman Alhaji, the Secretary to the Kano State Government, stated this in a statement circulated to journalists.

PREMIUM TIMES reported how the Kano State Government earlier on Monday announced the dethronement of Mr Sanusi, a vocal advocate of reforms in Northern Nigeria.

Many see the Kano government’s action as Mr Ganduje’s way of getting at Mr Sanusi who is believed to have worked against the governor’s re-election last year.
