Sanusi Lamido Accepts His Sudden Removal As An Act Of Destiny, Urges Kano Palace Officials To Work With The New Emir

The deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, has reacted to his removal from his highly exalted royal Office, on Monday.

Recall, that Sanusi was deposed, following a resolution of the Kano State Executive Council, on March 9, on allegations of insubordination.

A son of late Ado Bayero, who was Sanusi’s predecessor, Aminu Bayero, was immediately announced as the new Emir of Kano Emirate, with the endorsement of the four Kano Kingmakers.

Sanusi accepted his dethronement as an act of destiny, however.

His words: “With almost six years on this throne, and (in charge of) our heritage. Today, the almighty Allah, who gave me the Leadership, has destined to take it back.

“As I always say, leadership has predetermined tenure, the days Allah destined are numbered. When the days come to an end, one must leave.

“We have accepted whatever Allah decides. We have agreed. We appreciate (God). We are happy, and we know it is what is best for us.”

The deposed Emir, called on all Titleholders and Palace Officials, to support whoever emerges as the Emir.

“We enjoin everyone to remain peaceful. We have directed our family, our children, and those that support us, that whoever gets it and is endorsed by the people, they should pay allegiance to him.

“They should follow him (the new Emir). They should guard his honour and dignity, because that is also the honour and dignity of this Palace.”

In affirming his ties to his grandfather who was deposed in a similar way, in 1963, Sanusi expressed happiness for practising his reign in accordance with that of Emir Sanusi I.

“It is a thing of pride that made us to rule and end in the same fashion as Halifa”, he said using his grandfather’s sobriquet.

Sanusi expressed his thanks to the people of Kano, Titleholders, Lieutenants, and friends, for their support and affection during his reign.
