Presidency, Shekarau boycott Emir Sanusi’s coronation

The Presidency and the Minister of Education, Ibrahim Shekarau, on Saturday boycotted the coronation of the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II.

Mr. Shekarau, who is the Sardauna of Kano, was conspicuously absent at the venue.

However, former Head of States, Yakubu Gowon, and Muhammadu Buhari, as well as the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar, and the governors of Sokoto, Kaduna, Niger, Yobe, Katsina were present at the event.

Other dignitaries at the event includes the ambassadors of the United State of America, Italy, Canada and the British High Commissioner.

The state governor, Rabiu Kwankawso, said the event was held despite several challenges.

He noted that the Emir, a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, was appointed because of his overwhelming capacity, humility, honesty and above all fear of God which he exhibited in all his dealings.

  • Spoken word

    Good riddance.we don’t want you there as well.PDP wants to ruin this country but the Almighty will not allow

  • Abdul

    Yeye, they are not welcome there. We need good people there NOT BAD PEOPLE LIKE JONATHAN AND PDP CROOKS.

  • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

    Did anyone notice his absence?

    If there was a need for a skelewu dancer at the event, Jonothing would have been missed.

  • David Adeniran

    This is the first time we are having a President who does not see himself as the President of ALL Nigerians.

  • Okadigbo

    Truly, Dr Jonathan was right. Corruption is not stealing. I can begin to see the meaning now. So, I can mismanage state funds, use tax payer’s money to lodge at hotels with ‘short time’ and donate millions for mass marriages for the widows of terrorists..and then run to the village to take Igwe title so I can have ‘immunity’. Oh Nigeria! No wonder the world is laughing at us.

  • Chinedu Don

    if Jonathan can attend birthday party of CAN president , I see no reason why he shouldn’t attend this one.

    • Bunduma Mohammed

      He highjacked government through deciet including telling Nigerians about his lack o shoe and pastor Ayo also decieved christains and is promoting arms smuggling. They are friends of the same feather.

  • Jude Okonkwo

    If the coast is not clear, let him not drive his boat go there.

  • Maria

    Jonathan’s presence is not needed… since Mr Jonathan has been going from one church to another, have you seen him in any mosque to show he is not only president of Christians or that of olumba olumba but also that of Moslems and atheists?…. Mr Jonathan is a monumental failure.

    • Bunduma Mohammed

      His former commissioner of Health has revealed that he is not a christain. He goes to church to decieve pastors because of his lust for power. If has ever been a christain why did he allowed christain chibok to be taken by boko haram?

  • Yusuf

    Allah ya ji kan Dabo, Allah ya ida nufi magajin Rumfa…Ka taka a hankali sabon sarki, dan zaki toran giwa magajin gado da masu

  • Awarawa

    You guys are a bunch of jokers! Who do you people take the office of the president for? An Emir can be removed by a governor but you people know next to nothing except the junks being forced down your throats by your janjaweeds…

  • favourtalk

    Even if they go, they are as good as gunner, the country really understand what they need right now and what they want for the good of Nigeria, we can’t continue like this, nothing worked out under GEJ govt, we need change and we will vote, stand with our votes

    JONATHAN LIKELY BOYCOTTED IT

    BECAUSE THIS IS ALL HE KNOWS:

    • ₦38.23billion developed legs and got missing in Central Bank under Sanusi Lamido,
    • ₦1.97billion was paid out in cash and entered on Central Bank accounts as
    “inexplicable expense” by Sanusi Lamido Sanusi,
    • ₦20billion was paid out in cash as Legal Fees by Sanusi Lamido to persons
    un-known,
    • ₦3.086billion was paid out in cash by Sanusi Lamido as expense to promote Central
    Bank image,
    • ₦160billion was paid out for CBN on self-determined activities,
    • ₦240billion was discretionally doled out at will as ‘donations’ by Sanusi
    Lamido,

    • ₦1.12billion was taken in cash and entered as paid to a non-operating airline
    for charter service,
    • ₦1.12billion was claimed as spent by Sanusi Lamido on luncheon for CBN police
    guards in one year.

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    Sanusi ought to be arrested for making those wild and baseless allegations against NNPC. Why do we venerate criminals like Sanusi in Nigeria?

  • Frank Edet Udoh

    Why should the President be present? Does the President attend the coronation of the Obong of Calabar? …I can see that PT is detached from reality. This is 2015 and not 1985 and a Niger Deltan noble is president not a stray Fulani from Chad or Niger Republic.

  • Bunduma Mohammed

    GEJ is problem for Nigeria so who would invite him for conoration? let him face the warth of Nigeria for refusing to submit to election. Instead of doing his job as required by electorate who gave him job he was busy stealing, fiddling with useless woman and drinking Ogogoro. Now that his licence is about to expire he is busy using deciet, blackmail and bribing people without concience to buy more time. Look that the response of GEJ and Ngozi to Professor Soludo in which they praised Sanusi for doing a good job at CBN and you understand how we mistakenly put useless people to lead us? More than 75% of Nigerians have decided to change the criminal do nothing government.

    So, every OBI or OBA to be crowned, GEJ must be there eh?

  • Okey

    Premium Times, please confirm to your readers that the absentees “were invited” but refused to come. If not, the word “boycotted” will be highly unfair to them.

  • hummm

    GEJ keeps pushing himself to a corner. Foreign dignatries are in attendance and he doesnt send a rep even if he is not there? Classless.

  • Mique3

    If these are the comments Nigerians spend valuable time thinking and writing, then I see why we are not progressing.
