Ex-President, Olusegun Obasanjo, has reacted to the dethronement of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as the Emir of Kano.
Sanusi, a former governor, Central Bank of Nigeria, was on Monday dethroned and subsequently replaced by the Kano State government.
In a letter addressed to Sanusi, Obasanjo expressed shock at the manner the economist was replaced.
According to the former military ruler, Sanusi’s plight is good and sad at the same time.
His words, “I woke up this morning and after my morning exercise, devotion and my morning meeting with my staff, I heard the sad and good news of your removal by the Executive Council of the Kano State Government. It is sad because it was underserved. It is good because you have paid the price.”
“My prayer is that God should give you the fortitude and the courage to continue on the path that you have chosen for yourself in the best interest of our country and humanity.
“Please accept. Your Royal Highness, the assurance of my highest consideration.”
