My Father Is Not Afraid To Give Up The Throne – Emir Sanusi's Daughter

Daughter of Muhammad Sanusi II, Emir of Kano, has said her father will gladly let go of the throne if it stands in the way of the truth.

Speaking in Abuja during the first annual Chibok Girls lecture, Shahida who represented her father at the programme, said her father who had always wanted to be the emir had dedicated his life to the truth.

She said:

“My father is not afraid of giving up his throne if it stands in the way of speaking the truth. Those who think that my father would keep quiet because he wants to hold on to his throne, I
think they don’t know my father. I know that he has always wanted to be the emir of Kano but to him, if it comes between what is right, what his conscience tells him and choosing the throne, he would happily give up the throne. My father has always been a part of one controversy or the other and it’s normal for us. We are not scared anymore.

“And honestly, he has been a source of inspiration and pride. He never fails to fight. He fights for progress, liberty, justice and equality. Those who think they know my father should know that he will never be silenced by blackmail and intimidation. He lost his position once as the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and I remember his quote that you can suspend a man but you can never suspend the truth. I know he does not mind being the most unpopular emir so long he speaks the truth.”

The emir in a video message to the Bring Back Our Girls, BBOG, group at the Chibok girls’ inaugural lecture, commended the group for its persistent demand for the rescue of the girls and said the abduction of the Chibok girls raised questions about governance.

Now we see why the emir said, ‘Those who think I’m a problem should wait for my children’.
