Emir Sanusi denies attacking Buhari

According to reports, the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, has denied quotes attributed to him on some social media platforms, which denounced President Muhammadu Buhari’s government and All Progressives Congress, APC, as failures.


Sanusi, in a message yesterday, said: ‘’The quotes were fabricated and attributed to me to create misunderstanding and disharmony between myself and the President. I do not know who is behind these quotes.

“But they seem to be part of a new and insidious strategy where quotes are attributed to individuals in order to mischievously score cheap political points and plant disaffection between persons.

“These so-called reports never state exactly where my statements were made and in what forum or in whose presence, nor do the faceless cowards behind them have the courage to write their names.”

Sanusi said while he believed that “all intelligent and well-meaning Nigerians” could immediately discern that the quotes were maliciously fabricated, “it is only proper if I formally disassociate myself from them.

“It is a well known fact that I was illegally suspended from my position as CBN governor precisely because of my role in exposing the massive looting of our national treasury by the last administration, and that I have since shown my total support for the war against corruption being waged by the current administration.

“I am also convinced that everyone recognises the remarkable improvement in the security situation in the North, the greatest evidence of which was the incident-free celebration of Eid el Kabir throughout the country.”



  1. Those who actually know sanusi should expect this from him, being the spineless coward that he is. Learn to stand as a man, stick to your words.

    • @David, so being a brave man and not a coward is to accept what one did not say but attributed to him. U must then have a queer sense of judgement!

  2. This veiled chameleon, no need to be scared, mumu-made bum-hari has be told repeatedly by concerned, patriotic citizens, groups, and watchdogs how his unprepared, political journey has put miseries in people’s lives time without number.

  3. ED, if you are your true self and are on the side of truth , write your real name. because, your contributions towards every comment shows so much of your real self.

  4. If you ever expect a fulani oligarch to condem one of his own publicly , that means that you believe that jesus christ is a woman.
