Emir of Kano wants divorce severely punished

The Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II has urged the Kano State Government to enact a law that will punish those who end their marriages on questionable grounds.

Mr. Sanusi lamented the spate of divorce in Kano State, and said there must be punitive steps to reverse the trend.

He said many residents end their marriages on flimsy excuses.

The Emir who spoke in Kano, Friday, noted that women are often the most affected after divorce.

The worst hit, he said, are the uneducated and the economically-disadvantaged whose marriages are ended by their husbands over matters that could have been resolved.

Mr. Sanusi said anyone found guilty of separating from his or her spouse without sufficient reasons will be appropriately penalized to deter others and help reduce the huge number of divorce cases in the state.

He also warned his subjects, district heads, ward and village heads against drug addiction, saying he will not hesitate to expel anybody found in drug addiction.

    WHERE IS MRS YARO, PLEASE?

    “Come and kiss me quickly before the Board meeting!” that he text to a subordinate is not economics;
    but Yaronomics. Lodging in Federal Palace Hotel for two straight nights with the same married, woman (Hajia Yaro)
    who’s a subordinate staff in the same work-place at Central Bank of Nigeria, is not Islamic but adultery.

    Doing both whilst the poor got poorer in Nigeria despite increased oil revenues is not monetary economics,
    but incompetence. Paying out un-due ₦2.4 trillion Naira on fictitious bills of lading is not economics, but ignorance.
    Emir Sanusi Lamido did all of those whilst at the Central Bank as a staff; and so, he was not engaged in any sensible
    or obvious morality or economics at the time as Nigeria’s Central Bank Governor to give him a standing now.

    Central Bank of Nigeria Governor,Sanusi Lamido,is in the centre of a storm which was brought about by his alleged illicit affair with a married woman,Mrs. Maryam Yaro.
    As the story goes, the CBN Governor, who is very influential, had embarked on an affair with this woman who happens to be an assistant director and subordinate to him at the apex bank.
    The only problem was that both the Governor and the lady in question are married, with kids.

    “Stephen Davis [the Australian Boko Haram mediator] also mentions a Boko Haram financier
    within the Nigerian
    Central Bank. Independently we are able to give backing to that claim,

    even to the extent of naming the individual. In the process of our
    enquiries, we solicited

    the help of a foreign embassy whose government, we learnt, was actually on the same trail,
    thanks to its independent
    investigation into some money laundering that involved the Central Bank.

    That name, we confidently learnt, has also been passed on to President
    Jonathan.

    When he is ready to abandon his accommodating policy towards
    the implicated, even the criminalized,
    an attitude that owes so much to
    re-election desperation, when he moves from a passive
    ‘letting the law
    to take its course’ to galvanizing the law to take its course, we shall
    gladly supply that name. ”

    More than anything else (Emir) Sanusi Lamido Sanusi needs a court trial to cleanse his name.
    If he cares for honor, he will voluntarily submit to the criminal justice system forthwith.
    Only a final court acquittal on the merits can dis-entangle Sanusi Lamido from the
    intricate web of money frauds at Central Bank of Nigeria; including moneylaundering.

    Nothing he says carries weight whilst he’s under a cloud of an accused criminal.
    It is beyond a doubt that Sanusi Lamido’s own deeds put him in bad light in decent circles.
    That’s why he needs a court trial the more. The total amounts in question in Central Bank
    are close to a trillion Naira in mostly un-proved expenditure. Nobody can walk free with that sort of money
    and smell like roses. At any rate, a decent person should not be implicated in such a serial infamy,
    A reasoning person, not given to frauds or greed, will avoid foreseeably un-savoury consequences.
