On The Dethronement of His Highness Muhammad Sanusi II, Sarkin Kano, by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje
Inna lilLahi wa inna ilaiHi raji’un!
We, ADVOCATES FOR A UNITED KANO, have received with utter shock and disbelief the statement read by the Secretary to Kano State Government, announcing the removal of His Highness Muhammad Sanusi ll, as Emir of Kano.
In view of this sad, unfortunate and illegal dethronemment of the Emir by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, the ADVOCATES call on all Kanawa and residents of Kano State and beyond to stay calm, and not to resort to any violent reaction whatsoever. Violence is no solution to anything, for no one can predict where it may lead to.
We absolutely believe in whatever Allah (subhanaHu wa Ta’ala) ordained, and we put our complete trust in Him, for He Has power over all things.
Be that as it may, the ADVOCATES FOR A UNITED KANO shall continue to challenge, by lawful and peaceful means, each and every brazen act of illegality perpetrated by the Government of Kano State. In particular we have vowed to sustain our judicial challenge to the unlawful Law passed by the Kano House of Assembly under which the Governor purportedly removed the Emir.
Once again, inna lilLahi wa inna ilaiHi raji’un!
