Sanusi brought his problems on himself - Islamic professor says

A Professor of Islamic Political Thoughts at Yusuf Maitama Sule University, Kano, Professor Umar Muhammad Labdo, has said that the dethroned Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II caused his removal as emir.

Professor Labdo made this statement in an interview with Daily Trust.

Listing the things Sanusi did to bring ''problems upon himself, ''Labdo said the former Emir of Kano involved himself in politics during the last general elections. This, he said, was against the custom of the emirate.

Labdo said: “It is unfortunate that the emirate is being played with by politicians, but Sanusi invited this to himself. He is too vocal against the custom. Traditional rulers have ways of contributing to governance not publicly."

He went on to say that Sanusi tried to introduce “western things” into the emirate.

He said: “He is pro-women against men. He told women to retaliate if their husbands slapped them. This is against our culture in Africa. He is too blunt; he talks without considering the feelings of his people."

"I prayed and he was dethroned. My God is not dead" Reno Omokri reacts to rumour that Lamido Sanusi will contest in the 2023 presidential election

Reno Omokri has reacted to rumours that dethroned Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, has political ambitions come 2023.

The former media aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan shared a photo of the banner being circulated with Sanusi's face ahead of 2023.

In the caption, Reno recalled how those who attacked him ended up losing after he prayed for them. He then hinted that the same will be Sanusi's fate come 2023.

He wrote: "Is Sanusi Lamido Sanusi considering running for President. Maina sued me to court. I prayed to my God. 2 weeks later, he was arrested. Sanusi paid journalists to attack me. I prayed and he was dethroned. We await his Presidential run. My God is not dead!"

Over N3.7bn have been recovered from NDDC contractors- President Buhari says at inauguration of NDDC advisory committee

President Buhari today disclosed that law enforcement agencies have recovered over N3.7billion as well as various assets worth billions of Naira from contractors and former directors of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

The President disclosed this at the inauguration of NDDC Advisory Committee, comprising the 9 Governors of the Niger Delta Region and the Ministers of Niger Delta Affairs and Environment.

Specifically, President Buhari said:

‘‘To date, the EFCC and other agencies of Government have recovered over N3.7billion in cash as well as various assets worth billions of Naira from some contractors and former Directors of the Commission.

‘‘Furthermore, I am told that Government agencies have placed liens on over N6 billion of assets which are being investigated.’’

The President told the committee that these abuses of the past clearly show the need for strict and diligent oversight, going forward.

He, therefore, charged them to discharge the new assignment diligently and effectively, working closely with the relevant ministries, adding that he looked forward to seeing positive changes in the affairs of the Commission as well as on the ground in the Niger Delta region.

President Buhari recalled that in 2016, his administration launched the “New Vision for the Niger Delta (NEVIND)”, aimed at bringing sustainable peace, security, infrastructure and human capital development to the region. He said the medium to achieve this noble objective was through the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs, NDDC and the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP).

The President, however, expressed regret that in the past these institutions were unable to deliver their mandates due to mismanagement.

‘‘As a result, the people of the Niger Delta were left with abandoned infrastructural projects and substandard social programmes which were designed to improve their living conditions. It is to reverse this trend that I approved, in February 2020, the constitution of a 10-Man Presidential Monitoring Committee (PMC) as provided for in Section 21 of the NDDC Establishment Act.’’

He noted that the PMC, which will be chaired by the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs and its members drawn from various MDAs, will focus on monitoring the operations and activities of the commission, and will be reporting to him.

In the same vein, the President said the inauguration of the NDDC Advisory Committee is in line with the provisions of Section 11 (I) of the NDDC Establishment Act, explaining that the Committee is charged with the responsibility of advising the Board and monitoring its activities.

Justifying the decision to inaugurate the Committee ahead of the reconstitution of the NDDC Board, President Buhari said:

‘‘This is to enable us develop insights into the affairs of the Commission which will properly guide the Board when reconstituted once the Forensic Audit exercise on the Commission is concluded.

‘‘You may recall that the Federal Executive Council, on 5th of February, 2020 approved the appointment of the Lead Forensic Auditors. I am told they are concluding their pre-engagement activities and should be ready to commence work soon’’.

'Nigeria will never get better' - Hushpuppi condemns Sanusi's dethronement as Emir of Kano.

Hushpuppi has condemned the dethronement of Muhammad Sanusi II, who was removed as the Emir of Kano on Monday, March 9.

Reacting via his Instagram page, the Dubai-based Nigerian big boy said the removal of Sanusi as the Emir of Kano signals 'the beginning of the end of Nigeria'

Seriously, yesterday's historic event of the Emir's removal by a governor caught on camera taking hundreds of thousands of dollar bribe just dawned on me that Nigeria will never get better, only worse from things like this happening.

I think this is the beginning of the end of Nigeria and it’s happening right before our eyes! Until that country is taken out of the hands of this old corrupt and manipulative politicians, there will be no hope for our children and their children. Actions needs to be taken so it doesn’t continue like this.
