Former Governor of Kano, Engr Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso explained why Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje overthrew Muhammad Sanusi II for Emir of Kano.
He told Ganduje, “you overthrew him because of an inferiority complex against him, nothing more.”
Senator Kwankwaso noted in a press release signed by his chief private secretary Muhammad Inuwa Ali on Tuesday that “fears of high respect and caliber, plus the influence the Emir possesses, have upset Ganduje and insisted on his overthrow.”
Kwankwaso said; “We know that Ganduje always feels diminished and inferior in the presence of the Emir, and we know that Gavuje cultivates a pathological hatred towards the traditional institution of Kano, which is why he had to remove him from the throne.
“We also know that Ganduje was madly obsessed with reversing everything Senator Kwankwaso did in the state. And we are aware, for these reasons, that the Governor of Ganduja has been appointed, ab initio, to destroy the Emirate of Kano. And Emir Sanusi II was marked as the first victim.
“Let me note that the Governor of Gandhu and his cohort of Emir Sanusi II were abducted and illegally dethroned because of the Emir’s progressive ideas on various issues affecting the people of the state.”
Kwankwaso said Sanusi’s removal has nothing to do with former President Goodluck Jonathan.
He said, Everyone knows that Ganduje’s desperation to get a $ 1.8 billion loan and the Emir’s former criticism of the loan prompted the illegal removal of Emir Sanusi II; it had nothing to do with former President Jonathan.
“It is common knowledge that the Emir was too progressive at the will of Governor Ganduje and that this is precisely the reason why, after his illegal removal and the dissolution of the Emirate Council, Kano appointed an Emir who will not question his unscrupulous decisions even if they are against the interests of the state and its people. “
