Sanusi said there is a lesson in everything that happens to man in life.

As reported by Daily Trust, he said whatever God does, nobody can change and what He doesn’t do, nobody can.

“The Arabians used to say in everything that we are going to witness, there is a lesson that shows us that God is there. Whatever that is happening to an individual is preordained by Allah and to those that are sensible enough, it’s a lesson.”

He added:

“We made it clear that God has preordained time and cause for everything and everyone. He gave leadership to whom he wants and at the time he wants. When He gives, no one can take it away and when he takes it away, nobody can take it back.”

Sanusi commended Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf and members of the House of Assembly, stating that they saved Kano and Nigeria at large by “summoning courage” to reinstate him as Emir.

“My Governor and our assembly members, you will not understand the gravity of what you did for the history of Kano and the country at large.”
