After 24 hours that the former Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II, was deposed, President Muhammadu Buhari has debunked claims linking him with the development.
Garba Shehu who is the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity conveyed Buhari’s denial through his Twitter handle on Wednesday.
The reaction followed the Kano Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso accusing Buhari of ordering the dethronement and banishment of Sanusi to Nasarawa state on Monday.
Remember that earlier today, Mr Kwankwaso who appointed Mr Sanusi ll as the 14th Emir of Kano in 2014 told BBC Hausa on Wednesday that “Kano state government officials have been saying they were directed to dethrone Mr Sanusi ll.
”He alleged that contrary to claims that Mr Buhari had intervened in the Kano emirate crisis, “we believe here in Kano that he (Buhari) interferes where he wishes.”
The former governor also said President Buhari “doesn’t interfere where his intervention is needed, but interferes on issues he is supposed to be neutral about.”
Mr Kwankwaso described the removal of Sanusi as a sad incident to Kano, Nigeria and the entire world, adding that “the emir (Sanusi) is a global citizen.”
“The dethronement of Sanusi Doe’s make the government responsible”, he stressed.
