Kano: Buhari Ordered Ganduje To Dethrone Emir Sanusi – Kwankwaso Alleges




Buhari Govt Roasts Kwankwaso Over His Letter On Kano Deaths

President Muhammadu Buhari has been accused by the former Kano State Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, of ordering the removal of the former Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II.

The Peoples Democratic Party chieftain made this allegation while describing the dethronement of the former Emir of Kano as a sad incident for the state and Nigeria in general.

The former governor who appointed Sanusi as the 14th Emir of Kano in 2014, while speaking with BBC Hausa made this statement contrary to claims Buhari had intervened in the Kano emirate crisis.

He said: “We believe here in Kano that Buhari interferes where he wishes.”

“Kano state government officials have been saying they were directed to dethrone Mr Sanusi ll. Buhari instructed them.”

Kwankwaso further stated that the President “doesn’t interfere where his intervention is needed but interferes on issues he is supposed to be neutral about.”

Eulogizing the dethroned monarch, Kwankwaso said: “the emir (Sanusi) is a global citizen.”

Recall that the Governor Abdullahi Ganduje-led government had on Monday dethroned Sanusi as the Emir of Kano over allegation of insubordination.
