Nobody Is Above Being Dethroned-Presidency



Sanusi Lamido

The Presidency has said that no traditional ruler is above being dethroned.

The statement was made in reaction to the deposition of the immediate past Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II, by the Kano State Governor,Abdullahi Ganduje.

Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media, Tolu Ogunlesi, on Tuesday stated that a sitting governor can dethrone anybody as they have the power to do so. “That is the way the system is set up.”

He said “governors formally appoint them, present them the staff of office and fund their offices.

“It actually didn’t start today, it has been so for a long time.

“British deposed Obas of Lagos / Benin 1851/1897; Alake temporarily deposed by 1948 women’s riots; Awo deposed Alaafin 1955; Olowo deposed 1966; Edo military administrator tried to remove Oba of Benin as Chair, State Traditional Rulers Council 1999; Deji of Akure deposed 2010.”
