Former Kano State Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has explained that the rationale why Governor Abdullahi Ganduje removed Muhammad Sanusi II as Emir of Kano had nothing to undertake to to with ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
Kwankwaso, during a press release signed by his Principal Private Secretary, Muhammad Inuwa Ali, said Sanusi was dethroned by Ganduje thanks to the latter’s complex and undue to Jonathan.
The former governor added that Ganduje allegedly “harbours a pathological hatred for the Kano Traditional Institution”.
Kwankwaso said, “We know that Ganduje always feels diminished and inferior within the presence of the Emir, which we all know that Gov Ganduje harbours a pathological hatred for the Kano Traditional Institution; that was why he had to dethrone him.
“We also know that Ganduje was madly enthusiastic to reversing everything that Senator Kwankwaso did within the state. which we are aware, for these reasons, Governor Ganduje was set, ab initio, to destroy the Kano Emirate. And Emir Sanusi II was marked to be the first victim.
“Let me also placed on record that Emir Sanusi II was abducted and illegally dethroned by Governor Ganduje and his cohorts thanks to the Emir’s progressive ideas on various issues that affect the people of the state.
“Everyone knows that Ganduje’s desperation to urge the $1.8 billion loan and thus the previous Emir’s criticism of the loan was what fuelled the illegal removal of Emir Sanusi II; it had nothing to undertake to to with former President Jonathan.
“It is general knowledge that the Emir was too progressive for Governor Ganduje’s liking which was exactly why after his illegal removal and thus the dismemberment of the Kano Emirate Council, he appointed Emirs which may not question his ill-advised decisions albeit they’re against the interest of the state and its people.”
