We have a confused human being as President — Kwankwaso

The dethronement of former Emir of Kano State, Muhammad Sanusi II, has continued to generate reactions from different quarters for varying reasons.

From those who think Sanusi's ordeal is a dish well served, to those who think is nothing more than a conspiracy against the former Emir, and a group of those who think the whole thing is a calculated move to give room for a potential Sanusi Presidency come 2023.

Speaking of conspiracy, President Muhammadu Buhari has been dragged into Sanusi's dethronement saga, as allegation of undue interference in Kano State affairs, was levied against him by former governor of Kano State, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.

Kwankwaso while speaking on a BBC Hausa programme, alleged that Governor Abdullahi Ganduje only acted on instruction given. A situation he described as 'sad for the people of Kano, people of Nigeria and the entire world.'

The former governor also said President Muhammadu is a confused human being who doesn't know where he belongs and where his energy is most needed.

He said, “Even the Kano government has stated that it is an order. The president is involving himself in Kano affairs; but where he is expected to speak, he will not. He only speaks where he is not required to.

“What happened on 9th of March 2020 is very sad for the people of Kano, people of Nigeria and the entire world. You know HRH Sanusi is an international man. We saw what happened on the brazen abuse of power in the dethronement process. This, to us, is very unfair.”

But the presidency said it was unfair and disingenuous of opposition politicians to try to link the situation in Kano State to the federal government and the president.

The statement reads: “The president does not have a history of intervening in the affairs of any state in the country, unless the issue at hand is of national consequence. On such matters which impinge on national security, he has a duty of involvement as the law stipulates.

“As outlined in the constitution, the appointment or removal of emirs and other traditional leaders is strictly within the jurisdiction of state governments.”
