Rabiu Kwankwaso, a former Kano State governor, has said Abdullahi Ganduje, sitting governor of the state, removed Sanusi Lamido as Emir of Kano over inferiority complex.
He said this in a statement signed by Muhammad Inuwa, his principal private secretary, in response to comments credited to Ganduje saying he remove Sanusi to save the traditional institution from abuse.
Kwankwaso also said Ganduje is bent on reversing everything he did in his administration.
“Certainly, everyone that knows Governor Ganduje will attest that he is not a progressive and hence that was why Kwankwaso deliberately refused to consult him on the choice of Muhammad Sanusi II as new Emir,” he said.
“We know that Ganduje is averse to everything that Emir Sanusi II represents (knowledge, wisdom, experience, progressive ideals, and the love for the common man), and we know that Ganduje always feels diminished and inferior in the presence of the Emir, and we know that Ganduje harbours a pathological hatred for the Kano traditional Institution, and we know that Ganduje was madly obsessed with reversing everything that Kwankwaso did in the state.”
