Deposed Emir of Kano, Mallam Lamido Sanusi has said he could easily challenge his removal in court because his deposition letter was poorly written by officials of the Kano State Government.
Sanusi who mocked the poor manner in which his deposition letter was written, knocked the state government for not giving him fair hearing prior to his dethronement.
However, Sanusi said he was going to move on and did not want to return as Emir, saying he did all he could while he was the Emir of Kano for six years.
In a 45-second video clip that went viral on social media on Saturday, Sanusi said, “I have done what I could in six years, I’m moving on. I don’t want to go back. The truth is, if I had wanted to go back, the dethronement letter was so badly written, it was not done professionally. The easiest thing is just to go to court.”
“It’s simple… fair hearing. ’Did you query him? Did you ask him to defend himself? Did you even call him to ask him any question?’ No. That’s all but I think we should go on to a new phase in life,” Sanusi added.
Sanusi, who once headed the Central Bank for five years, became the 14th Emir of Kano in June 2014, following the death of his great uncle, Ado Bayero.
However, the 58-year-old was dethroned last Monday by the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, over “total disrespect for lawful instructions from the office of the state government.”
