noted that sitting governors could dethrone anybody as that is the way the system is made up and the state leaders have the power to do so.

This is coming after the current governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje, dethroned the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II on Monday.

In the video which was taken years back, Rimi made it known that the traditional rulers are public servants working in public offices and can be removed anytime as they are “working under the directives of their local government chairmen”.

The late governor passed away following an attack by armed robbers in 2010.
