- Shehu Sani pleads with the government of Kano state to go soft on Emir Muhammadu Sanusi
- Sani wants Governor Abdullahi Ganduje to know that power is temporary and vanity
- The senator's reaction follows a query given to the emir in which he was asked to respond within 24 hours
The senator representing Kaduna Central at the National Assembly, Shehu Sani, has appealed to the Kano state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, to soften on the government’s actions against Emir Muhammadu Sanusi.
Sani urged the governor to realize that power is only temporary and ends in vanity.
The state government had, on Thursday, June 6, issued the emir a query asking him to respond to the issues raised within 24 hours.
The query had to do with the allegations leveled against the emir by an anti-corruption agency of Kano state.
Emir Sanusi was reportedly given 24 hours to respond to the issues raised in the query which includes allegations of misappropriation of funds.
In his reaction, Sani said: “Power is temporary and it’s vanity; I appeal to Kano governor to reconsider and rescind the widely reported impending actions against Emir Sanusi Lamido."
Legit.ng earlier reported that the Kano state public complaints and anti-corruption commission had, in the evening of Monday, June 3, said it uncovered over N3.4 billion allegedly misappropriated by Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II.
According to a preliminary report of the investigation conducted by the commission and signed by its chairman, Mr Muhuyi Magaji, the alleged amount was said to have been misappropriated between 2014 and 2017.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the investigation was in respect of a petition of financial misappropriation levelled against Kano emirate council under the present Emir, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II.
