The Kano Emirate Council has condemned the suspension of Nigeria’s Central Bank Governor, Sanusi Lamido, by President Goodluck Jonathan.

In a statement in Hausa on Friday, the most senior Councillor in the Council, Tijjani Hashim, said what President Jonathan did was not in order.

Mr. Hashim said government should follow due process in anything it does. He said the way the CBN governor was removed from office appeared not to have been done in accordance with the law as Mr. Sanusi was not given a fair hearing before he was suspended.

Mr. Hashim thanked the National Assembly for rejecting Mr. Sanusi’s suspension and called on President Jonathan to reverse his decision.

He also urged the presidency to follow due process by reverting to the law by which the Central Bank of Nigeria is governed, the CBN Act.

The suspended CBN governor, who is of the Kano royal family, is also a traditional title holder in Kano.

    Due process? Did the gworo eating man follow through the investigations carried out on Sanusi? How he attempted to bribe the leader of the team with N2 billion and a private jet?

    The man now has so much money to misbehave.

    Someone who squnadered over $1 billion can do so much havoc in a society and that is the ragging campaign Sanusi has commenced. Let us see if he would win the FG and Nigeria as a whole.

    As for the Hausa Fulanis, we know they thrive on corruption

    Emirate, also ask GEJ to bring, back, Odumegwu, the former boss of the National population census board who was sent away on Kwankaso’s prompting. His offence was for truthfully saying that all our census figures from time immemorial are fake and loopsided in the Norths favour, as compared to Sanusi’s false alarm of an annoying consistent nature

    D emir of Kano and his ppl SHOULD JUST SHUT UP-cause we never heard them talk against the killing machine of BH 4 once-are they suffering from brain fag? They should look @ d amount of money that Sanusi stole from the CBN-that alone will tell them he is better off in jail than allowed to mix freely with even semi humans in kano-D Americans consultants Tinubu hired to handle the media outfit 4 APC, needs 2 do better than dis. When did it become the business of traditional rulers to allow themselves be hired 2 INTIMIDATE govt by APC? Sad though dat Gej has already set a very bad example in PHC with Mbu-APC will der4 continue to cash in on such situations through d use of unthinking traditional rulers in 9ja-Did any traditional ruler in d Fulani North, voice his concern when abacha hanged Kensaro Wiwa-or assassinated kudirat? D chairman of PDP is now sleeping-cannot talk cause Sanusi is fulani an untouchable abi? So he can distribut oil revenue as if he is Bill Gates-No qualms abi? Animals

      This article was written as an advice. No one insulted anyone and if u follow the news u will know that the emirates have condemned book haram killings each time something happens. If nothing else boko haram affects the north more than it does the south. Insulting people for their views is an attribute of the semi literate. If a northerner is an animal then all Nigerians including the poster is one. Democracy preaches freedom of speech and expression not freedom to insult. Christianity preaches peace and so I hear does Islam. Let’s not loose our way- express yourself but don’t insult. “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire…… Matthew 5- 21-22. Let’s be careful what we say

    It is believed that Sanusi was among those who took from police custody and behaded an Igbo man, by name Akaluka and paraded his bodyless head on a stake across Kano streets. Was the Kano Emirate unaware of this when they approved his apointment as CBN governor. How far can Hausa Fulani insensitivity go.

    If they are genuine, they should encourage the president to add murder to charges against Sanusi. Moreover, the should inform Nigerians about their paln to try him for adultery with Mrs. Yaro

    We EXCISIONISTS believe
    that the ultimate solution to the insensitivity and intransigence of the
    Hausa-Fulani in the Sharia states, to saving Nigeria from backwardness, to
    dealing with Islamic terrorism ; to saving
    thousands of lives perennially slaughtered by Muslims in the Sharia states and to moving forward and being
    reckoned as an emerging market along with the CRIBS (China, Russia, India,
    Brazil and South Africa) is EXCISION. That means the partition of Nigeria to
    exclude those states that have brought all the ills on the country.

      Why do you think the Western world budgets “Aid” for Africa and the underdeveloped world yearly?

      If you get the answer, your eyes will open.

      At this moment, ignorance, though blissful, will no doubt become painful.
