- The son of Emir Sanusi said the tussle between his father and Governor Ganduje should be left with experienced people
- Adam Sanusi said he hoped the person who is right amongst the two succeeds
Adam Sanusi Lamido who is the son of Emir Sanusi Lamido Sanusi of Kano state has reacted to the move by Governor Umar Ganduje to reduce his power saying may the right person succeed.
The Kano governor had approved the formation of four new emirates in a move that has been criticized as an attempt to whittle down the power of the Emir.
In a post on Instagram on Saturday, May 11, the Emir's son noted that his father speaks his mind all the time and thus may be facing persecution because of it.
He said: "I have received a lot of messages regarding the current situation which I’m sure a lot of you are aware of. It is my personal belief that situations like these should be left to those with the experience and knowledge to handle them.
"I am not an expert in politics or personal relations, in all honesty I thank those of you that support my dad but try not to insult anyone when you speak your opinions, try not to make rash decisions without fully understanding the situation. Do not hate anyone because they favour the other as they may not fully comprehend what is happening.
"Let us be fair, let us work hard at our own lives and pray Allah handles the rest. Between the Emir and the Governor whoever is right, we pray succeeds, my father speaks what is on his mind when he believes he should, I do not believe he is wrong for this. "
Adam said if his father's rank is reduced, he would wish for Kano people to still have a leader like Emir Sanusi replace him.
He said: "If he is dethroned/ reduced in status then I still wish that for my people, you get a right and just leader like him. If he is increased I still wish that he continues to be just. May Allah give us the best of outcomes for our people. Ameen."
Meanwhile, Cecilia Ibru who was the managing director of the defunct Oceanic bank claimed that she had problem with Sanusi Lamido Sanusi who served as governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria because he thought she wanted his job.
In an interview, Cecilia said she wasn't interested in Sanusi's job at the time as she was taking care of her ill husband.
She said: "He (Sanusi) thought I wanted his job but I didn’t. I was offered the position, but I said no."
