“I Can’t Really Say Whether Buhari Has A Hand” – Abdulsalami On Sanusi’s Deposition



Abdulsalami Abubakar

Former Military Head of State, Abdulsalami Abubakar, said he is not sure if the president, Muhammadu Buhari, was involved in the dethronement of the immediate past Emir of Kano, Mohammad Sanusi II.

Former governor of Kano, Rabiu Kwankwaso, had alleged that the president was involved in the dethronement of the former emir, now bannished to Nassarawa State while presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu, had disclosed that the president had no hand in the matter.

In an interview with Voice of America VOA Hausa on the issue, Abubakar said he cannot say so but that the committee’s efforts were wasted.

The former military head of state said after the committee submitted its report to the president, he (Buhari) expressed willingness to intervene.

Abubakar however said he “cannot say categorically if Buhari intervened, but that if he did, I’ll be surprised that we got to this point.”

He said “After conclusion of the assignment, we realised that there was amicable resolution to the crisis. Surprisingly, this is what happened at last.

“I can’t really say whether Buhari has a hand in the matter because I am currently not in Nigeria. But before I left the country, we submitted our report to him, and he expressed willingness to intervene in the matter in order to have amicable resolution, despite being a constitutional matter. I really don’t know if he had intervened.

“The way this is, I don’t know if he was was involved or not. There are signs that he did because of this our report but I can’t be completely sure, but if he involved himself, I’ll be surprised that we got to this point. But then you know no matter what was said, no matter the advice given, it is what Allah had willed to happen and there’s no one who can change it.”
