'I Have Accepted Whatever Allah Decides' – Sanusi

In reaction to his removal, Muhammadu Sanusi II, the dethroned Emir of Kano, says he accepts his removal as the will of Allah.

'I Have Accepted Whatever Allah Decides' – Sanusi

Sanusi made this statement in a video recorded shortly before he was taken away from the palace on Monday.

According to him in the video, Sanusi says his removal was best for him, according to God’s plan, and there was no reason to be sad over his removal.

He, however urged people to be appreciative and believe in God’s decision.

In the video recorded in Hausa Language, Sanusi did not state his next line of action.

He said;

With almost six years on this throne and (in charge of) our heritage. Today (Monday), the Almighty Allah, who gave me the leadership, has destined to take it back.

As I always say, leadership has predetermined tenure, the days Allah destined are numbered. When the days come to an end one must leave.

We have accepted whatever Allah decides. We have agreed. We appreciate (God). We are happy and we know it is what is best for us.

We enjoin everyone to remain peaceful. We have directed our family, our children and those that support us that whoever gets it and is endorsed by the people they should pay allegiance to him.

They should follow him (the new emir). They should guard his honour and dignity because that is also the honour and dignity of this palace.

It is a thing of pride that made us rule and end in the same fashion as Halifa.

  2. This barbaric acts perpetrated against Sanusi show that the north is backward in everything. Banishment is a pre colonial mode of punishment.
