Sanusi Reacts After Dethronement As Emir Of Kano

LAGOS MARCH 10TH (NEWSRANGERS)-The dethroned Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has broken his silence on his removal from office.

This is coming after the former ruler was dethroned on Monday, March 9, following allegations of consistently refusing to abide by the state government’s instructions.

The former monarch in a video that lasted over four minutes and was recorded in Hausa reacted to his dethronement by the Kano government.

According to Premium Times, Sanusi in his message which reportedly was recorded at the palace before he was whisked away into exile accepted his dethronement as an act of destiny.

He said: “With almost six years on this throne and (in charge of) our heritage. Today, the Almighty Allah, who gave me the leadership has destined to take it back.

Dethroned Emir of Kano, Malam Muhammadu Sanusi II, says he has accepted what happened to him in good faith and calls on the people of Kano and his associates to live in peace and support the new Emir. He thanks Allah for giving him the opportunity to be on the throne for six years. He also thanks the people of Kano for the love, prayer and the support given to him throughout his reign.

The video is in Hausa:

“As I always say, leadership has predetermined tenure, the days Allah destined are numbered. When the days come to an end one must leave. We have accepted whatever Allah decides. We have agreed. We appreciate (God). We are happy and we know it is what is best for us.”

In another report by Daily Trust, the former traditional ruler of Kano said in good faith he has accepted what has happened to him. He called on his associates and the people of Kano to live in peace and support the new Emir of Kano Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero.

In a related development, former President Olusegun Obasanjo has released a statement in reaction to the dethronement of Mallam Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Emir of Kano.
