Professor Umar Muhammad Labdo, an educator of Islamic Political Thoughts at Yusuf Maitama Sule University, Kano, has reacted to the dethronement of Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II.
The professor says the Sanusi caused his own removal as emir with his hands during an interview with Daily Trust.
Labdo alleged the former Emir of Kano involved himself in politics during the last general elections which is against the custom of the emirate.
In his words,
“It is unfortunate that the emirate is being played with by politicians, but Sanusi invited this to himself,
“He is too vocal against the custom. Traditional rulers have ways of contributing to governance not publicly.
“He is pro-women against men. He told women to retaliate if their husbands slapped them. This is against our culture in Africa. He is too blunt; he talks without considering the feelings of his people,” he said.
