Read some comments gathered from Twitter bellow;
@OgbeniDipo “Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, one of the few Northerners who speak up against child marriage, poverty, out of school children & drug addiction has been removed. After they tried to suppress his voice for many months. You wonder what manner of politics this is & to what end.
@royaltyuso “I know Sanusi will either go for a course at Harvard or start giving speeches at Chatham House or TEDx conferences, I wish him well. He has never been a powerful man, but he is undoubtedly great at being an opportunist.
It is God alone who judges; he decides who rises or falls.
@MrVAR “How can someone that was caught in video collecting bribes from contractors be investigating Emir Sanusi Lamido Sanusi for corruption. Nigerians are we thinking straight? Ganduje baida kunya ku kadan wallahi.
@Ayobankole “HRH Emir Muhammed Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, the Emir of Kano has been dethroned by the Government of Ganduje. This is a tragedy that should have ended with militarism, a big loss to quality leadership at our traditional levels.”
@Sufy2 “I wasn’t shocked Emir Sanusi was dethroned. We knew it will happen, cause Ganduje hates him for reasons known to him.”
@Yusufdano “Same Ganduje that was caught on camera taking bribe is the same one dethroning an honest and educated King. Nigeria is the ghetto.”
@MsLami “It’s cute how Ganduje is flexing his muscles now, immunity will soon expire and he will suffer. That’s for sure
@gimbakakanda “The man we fell in love with is called Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, and what’s made him the darling of the progressives is his characteristic public intellection. You can never take that away from him. There’s always a price to pay for refusing to play by the book of the Establishment.
@ Chydee “The same Ganduje whose Dollars-in-Agbada bribe videos went viral really championed the removal of Emir Sanusi for “corruption”. Comedy Republic of Nigeria.”
@Ayemojubar “If not for the pitiful system of government we have, how would Ganduje be a governor in a state where someone like Emir Sanusi of CBN exists?Princes on foot, slaves on horses. Who is Ganduje without political power?
@Abdulkabir_SA “Sanusi and Ganduje have succeeded in rubbishing one of the most respected traditional institutions in Nigeria. Sad!
@Sodiqtade “Ganduje playing weak politics as usual.Emir Sanusi isn’t just a random leader you can discard like a paper.Using executive power to threaten the distinct throne of Emir is beyond many.Ganduje shouldn’t forget about the dollar video, we are coming back to that after 2023.”
@Theofficialfemi “Ganduje removed SLS over corruption allegations. If that’s not the most ironic thing I’ve heard since 1999 then.”
@Ferdinandrogers “Ganduje is biting more than he can chew. Why dethrone Emir Sanusi, he is not looking at after government. Except he put a puppet after his tenure, the next governor of Kano state will deal with him. a criminal clown.”
@IhoTerence “History repeats itself, in 1963, Emir Sir Muhammadu Sanusi I was dethroned as a result of the power struggle between him and Ahmadu Bello.
57 years later, his son Emir Sanusi Mohammed Sanusi II is dethroned by Governor Ganduje.
@Teemah_writes “Ganduje deserves to be impeached, no like beaten out of that government house! The man doesn’t know the first thing about limit, or anything at all. Challenging an institution that will outlive him, and his corrupt government? Okay o! Kano is headed for doom, I miss Kwankwaso!
@Oluvick009 “Ex Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi. We saw it coming but Ganduje is still a governor even after video evidence of him pocketing money. Wetin Sanusi no go see for Palace!
