Some Of The Speeches That Dethroned Emir Sanusi by wirinet(m): 5:56am On Mar 11, 2020
Lamido Sanusi has a sharp tongue, some would say a caustic tongue. While as CBN governor he tongue lashed CEOs of the biggest banks in Nigeria for mismanaging depositors funds and actually dealt with them. He even at one time tongue lashed the yoruba elites for being the trouble with Nigeria.

He made lots of enemies within the business elite, but it was when he started taking on the political elites that his troubles began.

He raised questions about the NNPC remittance of crude oil sales into the federation account. He allegedly that $50 billion oil revenue by NNPC was unaccounted for. This earned the wrath of President jonathan and his supporters. Jonathan revived a dead parastatal we had never heard of before to investigate and try him. At the end of the day he was accused of financial mismanagement at CBN and suspended until his tenure expired.

But as fate will have it, he got appointed as the new Emir of Kano by the Kano State council kingmaker after the death of the erstwhile Emir, Ado Bayero. Some say it was the work of the then Kano State governor Kwankwaso, in order to spite president Jonathan. Mind you even Kwakwanso did not escape Sanusi's caustic tongue, as he had accuse the governor of mismanaging N700 billion.

One would assume that as the second most important northern traditional ruler Emir Sanusi would rein in his tongue, but alas, it went on overdrive. He started tongue lashing the northern political elite and the northern establishment for pauperising their people, for the almajiri system, girl child education, and a host of others. He eventually took on the governor. He criticised the Kano State governor and failed to endorse him for a second term, not minding that he is actually an appointee of the governor. After Ganduje won his second term everyone knew it was only a matter of time Governor Ganduje deal with the Emir. And he did deal with him in a brutal and humiliating way.

This is one of those speeches that got Emir Sanusi into trouble.

Not only leaders, ordinary Africans hate the truth. Even in your family, community or churches, you will be despised if you tell the truth.

Imagine, they are now removing videos of the former Emir criticising the political elites. They remove the last video I pasted from YouTube.

Here is another one where he finished northern leaders at a Mo Ibrahim Foundation fora.

April 14, 2017 was the third anniversary of the kidnap of the Chibok Girls. The #BringBackOurGirls BBOG Movement had organized its 1st Annual Chibok Girls Lecture where the former Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi was invited as a keynote speaker.

Emir Sanusi defied the status quo, where women were not to be seen in public without a male relative companion. Hesent one of his daughters (in her early twenties), Shahida to deliver his paper. The presentation itself was defiance in tone, he dare the powers that be to do their worst.

Here are excerpts from his presentation;

All my life, I have been engaged deeply with the question of women and the oppressed and marginalized groups in our society. I have come to accept, like you, that remaining committed to this discourse is a risky and potentially costly venture in this environment. The elite consensus is about a culture of silence and complicity, where everyone remains in his or her comfort zone, and where the voiceless majority are allowed to remain where they are.

I recently gave a speech in which I said the North-East and North-West of Nigeria are the poorest parts of the country. This simple statement of fact has generated so much heat the noise is yet to die down. But what really are the facts?

The response to this speech has been a barrage of personal attacks and insults aimed at silencing any voices that dare shine the light on the society to which we are saying Bring Back our Girls. There are those who believe these attacks are aimed at discrediting me personally but even if that is the objective it will not work. I can only be discredited by what I have done and not by insults and lies on the Social-media. And in any event, personal criticism has no impact on the issues.

Let me conclude with a few remarks. Anyone who challenges a system or fights for the voiceless must be ready for a serious backlash. Character assassination, slander, blackmail and intimidation are the normal tools employed by those who defend and profit from the status quo.

Do not be intimated. Do not be silenced. Do not betray your conscience or sell your soul. Do not fear any human being. Stand up and take all the bullets that are fired at you but never kneel down. If you have to die, please die standing and not on your knees. Most important, ignore the noise.

Do not defend yourself too much against personal attacks because they want your person, not the issues you raise, to be discussed. I know it is tough, I go through this every day, but I have learnt that after all the insults and blackmail the issues remain and will not disappear until they are addressed. That is your task, put these issues on the table and do not walk away until they are resolved.
