Goodluck Jonathan Had Finalized Plans To Remove Emir Sanusi And Detain Him

The atmosphere in the ancient city of Kano on
Wednesday is tensed. The story spreading in
the town is that the new Emir of Kano, Sanusi
Lamido Sanusi, is about to be arrested and
detained on the orders from above as the
President, Goodluck Jonathan, has decided to
reverse Sanusi’s appointment immediately.

But the question is: does Jonathan have such
powers in a democratic government?
The few indigenes of Kano, who are angry by
Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso’s decision to pick
Sanusi among the three men presented to him
by the King Makers, are said to be jubilating the
news spreading across the state that Jonathan
had finalized plans to remove Emir Sanusi and
detain him…

The immediate past Governor of the Central
Bank of Nigeria and now Emir of Kano, Sanusi
Lamiso Sanusi is a political foe of President
Jonathan. The two men disagreed over
whether billions of dollars in oil money had
been stolen by people working for Jonathan in

Jonathan suspended Sanusi from the CBN after
the nation’s banker accused officials of the NNPC and the Ministry of Petroleum of failing
to deposit oil revenues worth more than $20 billion in the Central Bank as required by the law of Nigeria.

A source close to Gov Kwankwaso told Sahara
Reporters that the Presidency is being those
orchestrating the fake news about the removal
of Emir Sanusi from the throne.

“This whole rumor was calculated to cause a
new set of rioting in Kano,” said the source. He
said Jonathan and his cronies had designed a
plot to create destabilization in Kano in order to
give a pretext to declare a state of emergency
in Kano in the high populated state under the
control of APC.

You may wish to know that President Jonathan
is yet to congratulate Sanusi as the Emir of Kano.
