We forced Sanusi out of palace, when he remained adamant to leave, says Kano State Government

The Kano State Government has disclosed that the deposed Emir, Muhammed Sanusi was forcefully taken out from the palace, when he remained adamant to leave the palace honourably, and failed to humble himself.

Penpushing reports that, the Special Adviser to Governor Abdullahi Ganduje on Media, Salihu Yakasai made this known on Tuesday, adding  that following Sanusi adamant posture, the Government had to use  security operatives to ‘force’ him out of his palace.

The Special Adviser said if the dethroned Emir had humbled himself and left the palace immediately he was briefed, there would not have been any “drama’, adding that, “they (government) wanted it to be a quiet thing. That is the standard, the law. A deposed emir has to leave the state as it was done in the past but I don’t know what happened in the palace that caused the delay.

“At the initial stage, the emir wasn’t willing to leave the palace and that was why you saw what we saw with the security forces and what have you. If he had left willingly, I don’t think you would have seen such a reaction from the security apparatus,” he said.

Penpushing further reports that, Yakasai  noted that, though the situation was tense, adding that as at the time of filing this reports normalcy has been restored in the State,and also explained why the removal of Sanusi became  necessary,

“The emir had access to the governor and could have advised him if he wanted to, but unfortunately, he only finds podiums and stages as the only means to advise the government, which is not right. So, you can portray it as political or whatever, but the fact remains that no one would allow such disrespect and open criticism when you have access to him’.
