President Buhari denies involvement in the dethronement of Sanusi


President Muhammadu Buhari has denied involvement in the dethronement of Muhammadu Sanusi as the Emir of Kano.

Buhari was reacting to an allegation by former Kano State Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso that he was behind the dethronement of Sanusi as Emir of Kano.

Recall that the Governor Abdullahi Ganduje-led government had dethroned Sanusi due to his alleged disrespect to lawful authorities and insubordination.

Following Sanusi’s removal, Kwankwaso of the PDP had alleged that Buhari ordered the dethronement of the former Emir of Kano.

However, in a statement signed by Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu described the allegation by Kwankwaso as untrue, malicious and politically motivated.

According to the statement, Buhari has no history of interfering in affairs of any state across the country.
