The Presidency has come out to say that President Muhammadu Buhari did not have anything to do with the dethronement of the former Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II.

In a recent statement, by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, the president revealed that constitution is very clear about the appointment of emirs and traditional leaders being the sole responsibility of State governors.

According to him, every report saying otherwise are untrue, malicious and politically motivated.

He added that he is proud of Kano residents for remaining calm despite the shocking announcement.

It read, “Leave President Buhari out of the Kano emirate issue”,

“President Muhammadu Buhari has no involvement whatsoever in the dethronement of HRH Muhammadu Sanusi II from the position of Emir of Kano. All such insinuations are untrue, malicious and politically motivated.

”The President does not have a history of intervening in the affairs of any state in the country, unless the issue at hand is of national consequence. On such matters which impinge on national security, he has a duty of involvement as the law stipulates.

“As outlined in the Constitution, the appointment or removal of emirs and other traditional leaders is strictly within the jurisdiction of state governments. It is unfair and disingenuous of opposition politicians to try to link the situation in Kano State to the federal government and the Nigerian President.

“Although a retired General and former Military Head of State, President Buhari clearly understands that under the current democratic dispensation, the government at the centre cannot read instructions or twist the arms of all or any of the 36 state governments making up the federation.”

“They all have their powers specified under the Constitution.

”President Buhari commends the people of Kano for keeping calm in the past few days of the dethronement announcement.”
