I have no strong views on the dethronement of the former Emir Of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, as there are more pressing important issues that should engage our attention ranging from insecurity to falling oil prices and Coronavirus which has taken the entire world by storm. Why should the removal of Sanusi be our headache.
Sanusi was a Central Bank Of Nigeria, CBN, Governor who turned the office to a personal one and donating public money like a Donatus all over the place. There was a time we used to know CBN Governor by their photograph and signature on Naira notes. He became part of the political machinery in 2014 telling lies about missing money that was not proved till date. It was all scripted for regime change. Sanusi would be remembered as a progressive who wanted Almajiri poverty solved by spending N5 billion to renovate his palace. Good riddance, to bad rubbish.
Clearly, he must have crossed some political lines for his head to be chopped by this vindictive government. He was part of them and they have thrown him away when they were done with him.
They must clearly not be comfortable with his hypocritical hard sermons which were irritations in the ears of northern establishment. But I never contemplated how he sang those songs comfortably when he had not shown strong values in public office yourself. We remember all the extravagant contracts he awarded to Governor Nasir El-Rufai as CBN Governor. Sanusi never practise what he preached.
He can go to court to challenge the deposition but he should remember that Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State is fond of rejecting court orders openly.
Please can we talk about more important national issues please. I rest my case.
