They Are Intoxicated By Power – Shehu Sani Slams Sanusi Removal
A former senator who representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, between 2015 -2019, Senator Shehu Sani has criticised the removal of Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II.
THE right activist turned politician said those behind the dethronement of the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, displayed “the intolerance and toxicity of the liquor of power ”.
Sani said the Northern Elders Forum had waded into the misunderstanding between the deposed Emir and the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, but failed to make the two parties reach a truce.
The Kano State government had earlier today dethroned Sanusi, citing insubordination, refusal to attend official meetings and breach of Kano Emirate Law.
He tweeted, “The removal of Emir Sanusi represents the incompatibility of the crown and conscience, the consequences of dissent against established norms and the heavy price of holding principles in our north. It also revealed the intolerance and toxicity of the liquor of power .”
“The Northern Elders Peacekeeping force led by General Abdulsalam sent to enforce a ceasefire and restore peace in the Civil war between the forces of the Emir and that of the Governor failed in their mission; And they quietly withdrew unannounced, leaving behind an escalation.
The Emir of Kano is in total disrespect to lawful instructions from the office of the state Governor and other lawful authorities, including his persistent refusal to attend official meetings and programmes organised by the Government without any lawful justification which amounts to total insubordination.
“It is on record and in so many instances Malam Muhammad Sanusi II has been found breaching part 3 Section 13 ( a – e ) of the Kano State Emirate Law 2019 and which if left unchecked will destroy the good and established image of Kano Emirate.
