Emir Sanusi denies attacking Buhari

30 September 2016, 23:17

Kano - 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 sent to online publication, Premium Times on Thursday, 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.

The statement read: “My attention has been drawn to a set of quotes attributed to me attacking the government of General Buhari and his party and praising opposition party, I do not know who is behind these quotes,” the monarch said.

“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.”

 "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 recognizes 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,” he said.

Mr. Sanusi said he would continue to support the government in its efforts to address pressing national problems and to offer “constructive advice and criticism” as and when necessary.
“But this will be done in an open and transparent manner and not in the form of malicious statements on the Social Media,” he said.
