Following his exit as the Emir of Kano, which was announced yesterday, Muhammadu Sanusi II says he has accepted the dethronement as the will of God.
The Secretary to the State Government, Usman Alhaji, broke the news of the dethronement after the council took the decision at a special sitting of the Kano Executive Council, chaired by Abdullahi Ganduje, Governor of the state.
In a video shared on Tuesday, Sanusi spoke about his dethronement and encouraged everyone to support the new emir.
Greetings my people. We are always thankful to God for all the things we experience that never ends. I was dethroned as the emir of Kano on the 9th of March, 2020. God has kept me in health for about six years on this throne.
The one who gives has taken. Leadership is given to one to keep and when it’s time, the person has to give it back. God has already fore-planned when one will stay or leave and that’s why we have taken in good faith everything that has happened. We agree we are grateful, we are cheerful. We thank the people of Kano for all the love they have shown us thus far, for the followership, and obedience.
We thank all the people that have helped us and that have supported us. We thank the brethren with good hearts that stayed and made these decisions. We plead to our children and people that whoever becomes leader, they should follow him to fulfil his duties. I thank the brethren and I’m telling them that God is infallible and whatever he does is right.
And today, it shouldn’t bother them. When something starts, it’s the end we look out for. God will make the end good, he’ll make us finish well. We thank the God that gave us the ability to serve for the years we did, the one that gave us the ability to build the structures we built here.
Let us continue to pray that God blesses the state and cause it to prosper and give the proper leadership. This palace, God should cause it to prosper and our land, God should return it, God should fill us with joy. We are grateful, thank you, thank you. We leave you in happiness, we leave you in a good state of heart, we leave you in thanks.
