My reinstatement as the Emir of Kano is preordained by Allah — Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II


The Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II has described his reinstatement as divine and predestined by God.

It would be recalled that the former CBN governor was reinstated as the Emir of Kano on Thursday, May 23, and received his appointment letter a day after following Governor Abba Yusuf’s signing of the Kano State Emirate Council (Repeal) Bill 2024 into law.

Sanusi, stated this while speaking on Friday at the government house.

He said:

“The Arabians used to say that in everything we witness, there is a lesson that shows us that God is there.

Whatever happens to an individual is preordained by Allah, and for those who are sensible enough, it’s a lesson.

God is one, and whatever He does, nobody can change, and what He doesn’t do, nobody can.

About 10 years ago, in this same place, former Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso gave me my appointment letter as the Emir of Kano.

Today, after 10 years, I am here again receiving a reappointment letter from Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf.

Time will not permit long talks.

Whatever we needed to say, we said when we were leaving.

We made it clear that God has preordained the time and cause for everything and everyone.

He gives leadership to whom He wants and at the time He wants.

When He gives, no one can take it away, and when He takes it away, nobody can bring it back.”
