Emir of Kano'd Daughter, Khadija Sanusi
Khadija Sanusi, the daughter of former Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II on Monday, asked her followers to stop sending her condolences.
This comes after her father, the former Emir was removed yesterday by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje for “disrespecting lawful instructions.”
The state government said the dethroned monarch’s removal was in line with a recommendation by the Kano State Public Complaint and Anti-corruption Commission.
Moments before Sanusi’s dethronement was made public, Khadija alluded to it by taking to Twitter to quote her father, in response to a tweet that said, “Muhammad Sanusi, emir of kano, once said?”
She replied, “You can suspend me, but you can’t suspend the truth.’ The man that raised me has never been afraid of letting go of power for the sake of integrity.”
The former emir’s daughter later expressed exasperation over the number of condolence messages she had received.
Khadija, in a series of now deleted tweets, said, “Can you people please stop sending me ‘Innallillahi wa Inna ilayhir raji’un’ (from God we came, to God we shall return) and ‘my condolences’? We did not die.
“Explain to me how I’ve been the one consoling my friends.
I’m like ‘I’m sorry.’ Allah ne yaso. Insha Allah hakan yaafi alheri. (That’s his God wants it to happen. By God’s grace, it will be for good.) Just expect an invoice because I’m charging for these therapy sessions.”
The former emir had served as the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria from 2009 to 2014 when he was suspended by ex-President Goodluck Jonathan under controversial circumstances.
The Secretary to the State Government, Usman Alhaji, announced that Emir of Bichi, Aminu Ado Bayero, would replace the dethroned monarch.
