Sanusi Speaks after his dethronement as Emir
Dethroned Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has reacted to his dethronement by the Kano state government saying Allah, who gave him the leadership has destined to take it back.
In the video message, which lasted over four minutes, Sanusi accepted his dethronement as an act of destiny.
He said,“With almost six years on this throne and (in charge of) our heritage. Today, the almighty Allah, who gave me the leadership has destined to take it back.
“As I always say, leadership has predetermined tenure, the days Allah destined are numbered. When the days come to an end one must leave.
“We have accepted whatever Allah decides. We have agreed. We appreciate (God). We are happy and we know it is what is best for us.”
The video appeared to have been recorded at the Kano Palace on Monday before Mr Sanusi was whisked away into exile by security personnel.
