Kano: “It is too late!”: Sanusi mocks Gawuna, after Supreme Court reverses sack of Gov. Yusuf

Muhammadu Sanusi II, the immediate-past Emir of Kano, has said it was too late for Nasir Yusuf Gawuna, the All Progressives Congress (APC) flag-bearer, to accept the Supreme Court judgment.

According to Sanusi, a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), said it was too late for the APC candidate to accept his defeat at the Supreme Court as the will of God, a fate he had refused to accept soon after the poll.

The veteran economist said: “A faithful Muslim is expected to accept the fate of whatever befalls him or her at the first instance and not when there is no way out of his condition”.

Recall that Gawuna and the APC lost the legal battle to take over Kano’s governorship seat at the Supreme Court on Friday, January 13, after securing victory at the tribunal and Court of Appeal.

In his reaction, Gawuna described the Supreme Court verdict as God’s will. However, the former governor of the CBN said Gawuna was funny by describing the ruling as the will of Allah after he had failed in all he could to get the victory of the election from the right winner.

The former emir reportedly expressed happiness in the judgment of the Supreme Court, stating that he had called on the apex court to ensure that the people of Kano State get justice. His comment reads: “We have always been saying that since we are practising democracy and not dictatorship, it is the right of the people to elect their leaders and representatives”.
