Buhari not involved in Sanusi’s removal as Emir of Kano – Garba Shehu

Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu has debunked allegations that President Muhammadu Buhari was involved in the removal of Sanusi as emir of Kano.

This was what was contained in a series of tweets made by Garba Shehu on Wednesday.

In his statement, “As outlined in the Constitution, the appointment or removal of emirs and other traditional leaders is strictly within the jurisdiction of state governments.

“It is unfair and disingenuous of opposition politicians to try to link the situation in Kano State to the federal government and the Nigerian President.

“Although a retired General and fmr. Military Head of State, Pres. Buhari clearly understands that under the current democratic dispensation, the government at the centre cannot read instructions or twist the arms of all or any of the 36 state governments making up the federation. They all have their powers specified under the Constitution.”
