Ganduje: Why I Dethroned Sanusi As Emir Of Kano
Governor Umar Ganduje

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has revealed why he dethroned Alhaji Muhammadu Lamido Sanusi as the Emir of Kano.

He made this known while speaking at a book presentation “Dear President Goodluck Johnathan” authored by Bonaventure Philips Melah, a former Editor of Daily Times.

Ganduje stated that Sanusi was not the best man for the throne at the time he was appointed in June 2014.

Ganduje further expressed that Sanusi was only appointed to spite former President Goodluck Jonathan.

The Kano Governor stated that he had to dethrone Lamido Sanusi to save the traditional institution from abuse.

He recalled that Sanusi was wrong for openly accusing some persons under the Jonathan administration of stealing $49 billion which resulted in his sack as CBN Governor.

Ganduje said: “Jonathan took a bold step in sacking Sanusi as CBN Governor, which created bad blood in certain circles.

“When Sanusi said $49 billion was lost in Jonathan’s government, I said in my mind that No, you could have discussed with him (Jonathan) privately.

“You could have given him this clue and then he would know how to investigate even before those who had stolen the money would find a way of hiding the money.

“That statement, I said in my mind was not honorable. That statement created bad blood.”
