A former Minister of Aviation and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has reacted to reports claiming that the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi was planning to depose the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi ll.
The Ganduje-led administration queried Sanusi for allegedly misappropriating the Emirate Council’s N3.4 billion.
Our Correspondent reliably gathered that the Emir was queried after the submission of a report by the State office of the anti-corruption and Public Complaint Commission who investigated him on the alleged squandering of the Emirate Council’s funds.
The report which was submitted to the Government late Tuesday is said to have recommended for the immediate suspension of the Emir.
The government has consequently handed down a query to the Emir through the Office of the Secretary to the Government, Usman Alhaji late Tuesday.
DAILY POST reported that the government is planning on the complete deposition of the Emir when a final report of its forthcoming panel of inquiry comes out indicting Sanusi.
However, Fani-Kayode said that what Gov. Ganduje was doing to Sanusi was unacceptable.
In a tweet on Thursday, Fani-Kayode wrote: “I’m not the greatest fan of the Emir of Kano but I believe in justice for all regardless of my personal views about the victim of persecution and oppression or my prejudices. What Gov. Ganduje is doing to the Emir is unacceptable. It is petty, vindictive and politically-motivated.”
