According to Ganduje, Sanusi, a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), was given a marching order because “he doesn’t understand the responsibilities of a traditional ruler.”
He said: “The real story is that the deposed emir of Kano did not understand the responsibilities of a traditional ruler especially for a strong institution like that of Kano. “You see, the deposed emir of Kano was a social critic, a celebrated social critic.
And that was nothing wrong with that. He is an educated person, he has freedom of speech.”

Recall that Sanusi, a 14th Emir of Kano from the Fulani Sullubawa clan, ascended the throne on June 8, 2014, following the death of his grand-uncle late Ado Bayero. But he was dethroned on March 9, 2020, by Governor Ganduje over insubordination and alleged abuse of power before he was banished to Nasarawa state.
Sanusi later contested his banishment in the court of law.
He later relocated to his house in Lagos after the court ruled that his banishment was unconstitutional and illegal.
