Sani said Sanusi II fought against tyranny and became a victim of it but turned down to support, encourage and identify with it in neighbouring Kaduna state.

He stated this via his verified X handle (formerly known as Twitter) @ShehuSani on Monday, May 27.

Sani wrote:

“Lamido fought against tyranny in Kano State, became a victim of tyranny in Kano State and supported, identified with and encouraged our own tyranny in Kaduna State.”

TheTalk.NG recalls that the former Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai, said Allah is the best of planners in the affairs of men on earth while reacting to the reinstatement of Sanusi II, as Emir of Kano.

El-Rufai stated this in a cryptic post on Facebook on Friday, May 24.

Nigerians react


In other words , Shehu criticizes Lamido for opposing tyránny in Kano but supporting it in Kaduna. Funny and interesting on how people selfishly support tyranny when it favors them, but cry and play the victims when the table turns around.


Emir Sanusi &El Rufai are friends.

When Sanusi was deposed &banished to a village in Nassarawa, no 1 helped him except El Rufai. Then Governor El Rufai went with his security convoy to rescue Emir Sanusi. I don’t think Emir Sanusi could dictate how El Rufai chose to run his Govt.


What did he do in Kaduna Sate, this is a case of the friend of my enemy is my enemy.


What might look tyranny in one state might not necessarily be tyranny in another.


It was his friend doing the tyranny in Kaduna. We hate tyranny except it’s our friend’s tyrannical regime.


No this is not true. The then Kaduna State government implemented certain projects and in education which Sanusi has great desire for. He sided with development and not the person doing the development. Sefini.


Hon. You just don’t like El Rufai one bit,So SLS should stop being friends with El Rufai because you don’t like how he was governing Kaduna.

Sani proposes solution to Kano emirate tussle

Meanwhile, TheTalk.NG previously reported that Sani proffered a solution to resolving the royal tussle in Kano Emirate between Muhammadu Sanusi and Aminu Ado Bayero.

Sani said there should be a constitutional amendment that allows governors to only appoint traditional rulers.

The former federal lawmakers said the removal of monarchs should be done by the national council of traditional rulers.
