Sanusi: Tinubu Resisted Pressure To Interfere In My Reinstatement by Islie: 2:21pm On May 25
Muhammadu Sanusi says President Bola Tinubu did not interfere in his reinstatement as the Emir of Kano.

On Thursday, Abba Yusuf, governor of Kano, announced the reinstatement of Sanusi after signing the new Kano Emirate Council Law.

The state assembly had passed the amended Kano State Emirate Council (Repeal) Bill 2024.

The law repealed the 2019 version, which balkanised the Kano emirate into five jurisdictions and was relied upon to depose Sanusi as Emir in 2020.

Speaking on the development in an interview with Television Continental (TVC), Sanusi said Tinubu recognised that the Kano drama was a local matter and resisted all pressure to interfere.

The former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) added that he was not given an opportunity to defend himself after being dethroned on “unsubstantiated allegations”.

He described his return to the throne as a correction of injustice done to the people, culture and tradition of Kano.

[i]“As you know, I was appointed the 14th Emir of the single emirate of Kano in June 2014 and now I am reappointed as the Emir of the single emirate of Kano,” he said.

In between that period, we did not have a single emirate. We had five balkanised emirates and this was an injustice to the history of Kano. It was an attack on our history, our culture, on our traditions, and it was an act of betrayal to our family.

We thank Allah that today, the emirate has been unified again, its people have been brought together, that an injustice has been corrected because as you know, I was dethroned on an allegation of insubordination which was never specified.

I was never given an opportunity to defend myself but I have never spoken about it because I’ve always assumed that when the time is up, it’s up. Today, I thank God that God has remained as we know, a faithful God who stands by justice.

I would also like to express my thanks to his excellency Alhaji Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu without whose principled stance of non-interference in the internal affairs of the state, this would not have been possible.

“The president has shown that he is a respecter of the constitution and the separation of powers, he recognises that this is a purely local matter and that the government has a responsibility to do what is right for the state. I’m aware that he has resisted all pressure to get the federal government to be involved.


“This for me is a continuation of service that I started, it is also an opportunity God has given me to improve on my previous tenure.

“We all learn from our mistakes and it is our responsibility to improve on the things we did well and avoid those things we did not do well. Life is a continuous learning process. I’ve enjoyed the break of the last four years.”[/i]

He also thanked the Kano state government and the security services for maintaining law and order in the state.

He assured the state and federal government of his loyalty and cooperation, saying “they can be assured that they would find in me a friend, confidant and adviser”.

This really shows Tinubu is a law abiding citizen just like me and you.

In the first instance, it was Tinubu who influenced his appointment by Kwakwanso when the last Emir died. I remember that the FG lead by Goatluck Jonathan already congratulated the other contestant then , Tinubu was on Kwakwanso's neck to appoint Sanusi Lamido Sanusi the pedophille because Tinubu wanted someone who would work assiduously again Jonathan's reelection being that Sanusi Lamido Sanusi was at that time recently disgraced by Jonathan.

And it was the elder Bayero the rightful heir to the throne not Sanusi.

It cannot be. The Emir that died was his father (Bayero), so the son cannot be the next Emir considering the fact that there are two families entitled to the throne notwithstanding that the two families are cousins.

It’s even foolish to think that if the great Jagaban wanted to erase the name “Sanusi” he couldn’t (especially in a lawless society like Nigeria), let alone stopping him from being reinstated. Jagaban has a good heart…he is a politician truly worthy of emulation.

I wonder why they keep underestimating Jagaban the Great!😊


Don’t bother quoting me except you understand basic logic!😊

This is not a compliment. Tinubu is making a lot of political mistakes. When he will need to stamp his authority, it will be of no effect. Change course now. Nothing like non interference. Stay on this course and regret it.

You’re not being objective nor are you taking into consideration the reality of Nigeria.

Our nation is toxically and religiously charged at the moment. There is no gain for Tinubu, a Yoruba, going to intervene forcefully in the affairs of Northerners.


He will be accused of bias and insensitivity so cannot win. Best to remain neutral and direct aggrieved folks to seek redress legally.

I am objective. I simply did an analysis. I liked his intervention in Rivers State and the resolutions that were issued. However, he didn't follow up with their total implemention and now the state is back to chaos. It should not be that way. The aim must be achieved, don't stop halfway.

Ever since, there has been a pattern developing in his administration and it is not a good one. You see it in Ajuri Ngelale's comments about Rivers State. When he will want to exercise authority in the future, it may be met with resistance. You have to start wetting the ground. Now this is politics, you have to know how to maneuver.

Why's it so hard for BAT'S critics to admit when he gets political moves right ? ( at least 95% of time)

You're pained despite hearing from the horse's (Sanusi) mouth, you still want to claim otherwise.

Perhaps, he should start by getting governance right, don't you agree?
Maybe then, the citizens will begin to respect and see him as their president.

Lol. You 🫵 think Tinubu really gives a hoot about your so-called "respect" ?

Whether you see him as President or not, his address for the next 4 years and likely 8 is Aso Rock...

He's still Number 1 Nigerian and the several countries that received him accorded him that status regardless of your opinion.

Conclusion : you overestimate your relevance in the grand scheme of things.
