The Emir of Kano allegedly took sides with former governor Rabiu Kwankwaso’s godson Abba Kabir Yusuf against Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, and is now as repentant as ever, openly begging Ganduje for forgiveness.
This is coming amidst heated opposition which trailed Governor Ganduje’s re-election, with rumor making the rounds on the alleged involvement of some notable individuals in partisan politics before the just concluded gubernatorial election including the Emir and the Emirate Council.
The Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II, who organised a special prayer session, Saturday, at the Kano Central Mosque, praying for Allah’s protection and guidance for Ganduje’s administration, also said: “You should endeavour to forgive and forget what happened”.
Emir Sanusi took more than an hour explaining why it was necessary for forgiveness in anything that has to do with governance and social relationship, insisting that “Misunderstanding is sometimes caused by sycophants. It is, therefore, necessary for us to always pray for Allah’s protection from such elements.”
Sanusi made it clear: “It is not bad for anyone to hold on to his or her opinion about happenings in the society. But what is necessary and paramount is the fact that after the election, all people should come together and see to the successful tenure of government in power.”
Who doesn’t fear power should fear death at least.
