Emir Sanusi‘I just got a letter that said I had been dethroned for insubordination’Emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi II gave an explanation of why he chose not to file a formal challenge to his removal in a Sun interview.

Sanusi stated that if God decided he should leave, he accepted that there must be a reason beyond his understanding. He received a letter citing insubordination as the cause for his removal, without any prior query or details provided, indicating to him that both the state and federal governments had made a clear decision to dethrone him.

He stated, “A number of reasons. I have told you that I don’t have a fundamental right to be an Emir. I am one of hundreds of princes. God chose me. And if God says I should leave, for me, I take it that God knows better than me why I had to leave. Okay, let’s say I go to court.

“Let me even say this; I just got a letter that said I had been dethroned for insubordination. I had never been queried for insubordination. The details of the insubordination were not given. I had not been given any chance to defend myself. So, it was clear that the state and the federal governments had both decided that it was time for me to go. Okay?“

Sanusi stated that even if a court reinstated him, working under a governor who openly disliked him would make his life miserable, filled with fake stories and social media insults to which he couldn’t respond. He felt happier in Lagos with his friends, publishing his book, pursuing his Ph.D., engaging in his UN work, and participating in Tijaniya activities, rather than constantly fighting the government.CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
