President Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari says he is unable to interfere in the dispute between Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje and the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II because the constitution hasn’t given such power.

This was as the Emir of Ningi, Alhaji Yunusa Danyaya, on Thursday pleaded with Buhari to save the traditional institution in the North from being destroyed by urgently intervening in the conflict between Sanusi and Ganduje.

While speaking in a chat with newsmen at his palace in Ningi, he said: “I am begging the President as a father to all to please in the name of Allah to intervene in the problem happening in Kano and settle this dispute between the Emir and the Governor.

“I have high hopes that Buhari will not allow the traditional institution to be humiliated and bastardised, ”  the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quoted him as saying.

However, in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, Buhari said: “I know my role as the President of Nigeria.

“By the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Governor of Kano State has his own roles, once a matter is in the hands of the House of Assembly (like in Kano), the President has no Constitutional right to interfere.

“I am here by the Constitution, I swore by it, and I am going to stand by it. But let me tell you the bottom line of my understanding of the Constitutional role is that peace and security of all Nigerians must be guaranteed, where the people are threatened, then I will use my constitutional powers,” he said.

“I hope you are mindful of your promises to your constituencies. You went round and you promised your constituencies. I hope the promises you made are within the resources of your state.

“If you made promises outside your resources, it will be your problem because you are going to stand again in four years’ time. This is very important and it is important for our party,” he said.
