- Senator Shehu Sani has sent some words of advice to the dethroned emir of Kano, Sanusi
- The former lawmaker advised Sanusi to avoid being dragged into partisan politics by some individuals and groups
- Sani also advised Sanusi to avoid being used as a ladder, adding that it is enough being a hero
Former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, has given some important piece of advice to the dethroned emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi.
Recall that Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state dethroned Sanusi on Monday, March 9, over alleged disrespect for lawful instructions from his office.
Sanusi has also left the Nasarawa town he was banished to and returned to Lagos following a court order that freed him from the confinement.
Following the dethronement, there have been various speculations that Sanusi may join politics to contest elective positions.
However, in a tweet via his official handle on Saturday, March 14, Senator Sani advised the deposed monarch not to be allowed to be "dragged into partisan politics.
He also advised Sanusi not to avoid being used by "individuals and groups" as a ladder.
"Rest well in the comfort of your family without the burden & the lice of the turban and the gown; Avoid individuals and groups trying to drag you into partisan politics and avoid being used as a ladder. Its enough being a hero, they should look for a martyr elsewhere," Sani tweeted.
Recall that Senator Sani had earlier reacted to the appointments given to Sanusi by the Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai.
Within 24 hours, Governor El-Rufai announced the dethroned emir as the chancellor of the Kaduna State University (KASU) and vice-chairman of the Kaduna Investment Promotion Agency (KADIPA).
While many have praised the Kaduna state governor for identifying with his long term associate, Senator Sani does not seem impressed.
He said: “If I were an Emir in Kaduna I could have been deposed within one week and banished to Madagascar and later to Kabul with an instruction to the Taliban to never allow me grow my hair.’’
Governor El-Rufai and Senator Sani are arch political rivals.
In his earlier reaction to the dethronement, Sani said that the sack of Sanusi is a clear case of the intoxication of power on the part of the Kano state government.
The former senator said that the decision of the state is a complete diversion from established norms and goes to show "the incompatibility of the crown and the conscience."
He added that this is "the consequences of dissent against established norms and the heavy price of holding principles in our north. It also revealed the intolerance and toxicity of the liquor of power."
