Abdulsalami Abubakar, former head of state, has reacted to the dethronement of Sanusi as the Emir of Kano.
Abubakar said if President Buhari had intervened, Sanusi wouldn’t have been removed from his royal position.
He frowned at the leadership for allowing such thing to happened, said is sign of irresponsibility.
According to Punch Newspaper, he said a committee set up to resolve the dispute between Governor Umar Ganduje of Kano State and Muhammad Sanusi met with Buhari over the matter.
Abubakarwhile speaking in an interview with Voice of America Hausa Service, said the committee met the governor and the Emir.
He stated, “We met with the Emir and the governor separately, then we met them together. We tried to mediate. All I can say is that there was a misunderstanding and satan got involved.
“The governor had the yam and the knife in this matter because the emir is under him.
“I can’t say whether or not President Buhari intervened because I was not in Nigeria. But before I left, we went to him with our report and we discussed. I cannot say whether he intervened or not but if he intervened, it would be surprising we will be where we are now. But no matter what, if Allah says a thing will happen, there is nothing anybody can do.”
