This 👑 you are shaking is bigger than Emir Sanusi and Ganduje. I’ve seen HRH come out on top so many times when the odds are against him. If the Kano assembly (Gandollar) is successful, though it’s unlikely, then I’m sure there’s some greater purpose for this Man…. pic.twitter.com/f1HeRBPldL

If the zeal and determination Kano Assembly and Ganduje used to pass and sign this bill just to dethrone Emir Sanusi is channeled to education, poverty alleviation, infrastructure etc. The people of Kano will benefit immensely. But that is never their interest.

Kano Assembly is officially an Assembly solely for GanDollars… They all eat the bribe money together.. Emir Sanusi will regret the day he worked against Pres Jonathan…. Funny Politicians

How easy it was for the Kano assembly to pass bill for creation of 4 more emirs, all because of a bitter truth pill. However, they take forever to investigate Ganduje corruption and child abuse pic.twitter.com/Ai2bCv9QN6

Sanusi is outspoken, says the the truth about the North, they don't like it, they prefer the people to remain weak, dependent, uneducated because of politics. Kano assembly SHAME on you. The truth would be passed and the masses in the North would be liberated. pic.twitter.com/HdQjURL0Qe

Because of politics, Kano state house of assembly passed a bill creating 4 more Emirates to render Emir Sanusi powerless and useless. So the unity of the North has been a scam after all? #Justasking

I sympathize with Emir Sanusi Lamido Sanusi over his recent persecution and attempts to humiliate him by all means. This is the price you pay for speaking truth to power. Some of us have gone to prison for this.
Take heart sir.
