Kwankwaso Accuses Buhari of Dethronement
Rabiu Kwankwaso former governor of Kano state allegedly revealed that sacking of Sanusi Lamido as Emir of Kano was an instruction from President Buhari.
Reacting to the development during an interview with BBC Hausa on Wednesday, March 11, Kwankwaso who installed Sanusi as the Emir of Kano in 2014, said Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of the state, acted on the president’s order.
“Kano State government officials have been saying they were directed to dethrone Sanusi. He (Buhari) instructed them. What we believe here in Kano is, he (Buhari) intervenes where he wishes,” Kwankwaso stated.
The former Kano governor added that the president interferes in the state issues and that “he doesn’t interfere where his intervention is needed, but intervenes on issues he is supposed to be neutral about.”
