President Buhari is behind Sanusi’s dethronement – Kwankwaso alleges


The former governor of Kano state, Kwankwoso has alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari is behind the recent perils of deposed Emir, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.

In a statement made to BBC Hausa on Wednesday, Kwankwaso stated that “the governor of Kano himself has been saying that he has been given the order to remove Sanusi.”

The Presidency has not spoken on the sack of Sanusi since the former Emir of Kano was deposed by the Kano State Government on Monday.

During the rift between governor Ganduje and Emir Muhammad Sanusi ll, President Buhari had stated that he will not interfere in their rift.

Buhari noted that he will be overstepping his bounds, constitutionally, if he gets involved in the dispute between the monarch and Ganduje but Kwankwaso on Wednesday alleged that the President has been intervening in the affairs of Kano State.

“President Buhari is getting involved in the affairs of Kano state,” Kwankwaso said.

BBC Hausa however, noted that Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso did not provide any evidence to back his claim of the involvement of the President in the removal of the former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria as Emir
