In a 4.39 minute video posted on social media, the Emir who spoke in Hausa, said it is God that made him the Emir of Kano state and it is God’swill that he is no more the Emir of Kano. He prayed for the progress of the state and appealed to the people of the state to remain calm and not resort to violence.
The dethroned Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi ii, has said that his removal is nothing new because every power is transient except that of God.
“The throne of an emir is not permanent, every king and leader should know this, If it were a permanent throne, I wouldn’t have been the emir of Kano”, Sanusi said in a video posted on his Facebook page.
He added, “Before I came, someone was the emir and before him someone else was there, therefore, it’s nothing that would shock anybody.”
Muhammadu Sanusi ii added that “Whenever God says your time on the throne is over, if you don’t leave with your legs, people will carry your body out of the palace.”
Sanusi insisted that the most important thing to a leader is a sound and peaceful end, “therefore I thank God that brings to me a peaceful end without any rancor or chaos”.
“We thank the prophets, Imans, those who have been behind us all this years. We call on the entire Umah to remain in peace.
“Any person who succeeds me should be accepted by the people of Kano so he can end well.
“God does not make a mistake, whatever he gives is the best, and today don’t be disturbed, whatever thing that God started, it is the end we hope for and may God help this to end well.
“We thank the entire Muslims who have been supporting us year by year, the entire people of Kano and may god help them to continue to live in people. May god give us a good leader and give our land back to us.
“We leave you people with sweetheart and thanks.”
