Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has described the dethronement of Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi Lamido II, as GOOD and BAD.
The former president said this in a letter sent to Sanusi and obtained by Global Times on Monday, March 9.
The letter reads; “I woke up this morning and after my morning exercise,devotion and my morning meeting with my staff, I heard the sad and the good news of your removal by the Executive Council of the Kano State Government.
“It is sad because it was underserved. It is good because you have paid the price. My prayer is that God should give you the fortitude and the courage to continue on the path that you have chosen for yourself in the best interest of our country and humanity.
“Please accept, Your Royal Highness, the assurances of my highest consideration.”
The Kano state government dethroned Emir of Kano, Malam Muhammadu Sanusi ll on Monday over disrespect to the office of the governor and other government agencies.
Before his dethronement, Sanusi, who was named the new emir of Kano in June 2014, spent 5 years, 6 months and 26 days on the throne.
