The Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, has been accused of being “power drunk” by the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum.
The President General of AYCF, Yerima Shettima, while reacting to the disagreement between the Kano State Governor and Sanusi described the feud as unnecessary.
The Kano State government had called out the Emir for allegedly misappropriating the Emirate Council’s N3.4 billion.
A report had it that Sanusi was queried after the submission of a report by the State office of the anti-corruption and Public Complaint Commission who investigated him on the alleged squandering of the Emirate Council’s funds.
There had being recommendation that the Emir be suspended following the allegation raised against him.
Recall that the state government had installed, other Emirs, to reduce the power of Sanusi in the Kano emirate.
“The issue is totally unnecessary, but I thank God for the ongoing interventions and reconciliation at the instance of well-meaning Nigerians.”
“I thank God because the alleged move won’t happen because if it happens, Kano would have gone into crisis and we all know how Kano is when it comes to the issue of violence.”
“It’s really a terrible place to experience violence. I thank God for those who intervened also you can’t undermine the place of a traditional ruler. The Kano traditional Emirate has been there for over five centuries and Ganduje thinks he can just wake up one day because he has four years and undermine that institution that would amount to calamity.”
“Ganduje is power drunk and he is abusing it in this matter. He can’t be fighting everybody at the same time no matter how powerful he is. Ganduje is nothing but a common mortal. He can’t be fighting everybody, it is so embarrassing there was no reason for the crisis, he just went about creating unnecessary panic everywhere. In the nearest future, he is going to bear the cross for so many things he has done.”
