Salihu Yakasai, the spokesman of the current governor of the state, Umar Ganduje had stated that the deposed Emir was issued query by the former administration.
Kwankwaso, while speaking on BBC Hausa, described the statement as false and malicious.
“l have never issued a query to His Highness the Emir of Kano “.
“it is an act of impunity which is also beyond the powers of the state Governor alone.
“Honestly speaking what happened on Monday the 9th of March 2020 is a sad thing for the entire people of Kano, Nigerians and the entire people of the world because the dethroned Emir is a global figure because of the struggles he lead in his entire life especially when he served as the CBN governor and this job at the Kano Emirate.”
“On this day, we have seen very annoying things especially the way impunity and disregard to the constitution and the laws were implored in dethroning His Highness the Emir of Kano. We see this action as totally unjust.
“More so, the way we saw the deployment of security agents, it is clear that this is beyond what a state Governor alone can do. Despite the intervention of his (Sanusi II) lawyers seeking for him to be allowed to move to Lagos where he chose, he was forcefully put in a plane and taken to the remotest place in the country and after some plea, he was taken to another part of the same Nasarawa state.
“But even as you have chosen to use impunity to dethrone him, l wish to remind you that this is a democratic dispensation and not military regime,” he said.
