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.
Kwankwaso has also dismissed the allegation that he queried dethroned Emir twice during his tenure as governor.
“I have never issued a query to His Highness, (the) Emir of Kano,” he stated.
Kwankwaso further lamented what he described as the humiliation of the deposed monarch as a disrespect to the people of Kano.
