The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Monday said the deposition of Emir Muhammad Sanusi II by the Kano state government, is a clear sign of taking insensitivity too far amid deplorable security situation in the course.
The party said, removing the Emir “at the time that the nation is battling worsening insecurity challenges,” shows the insensitivity and poor appraisal of core national stability issues by the All Progressives Congress, APC-led administration.
This was contained in a statement issued by the party’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan.
The party said “without prejudice to the issues, the PDP describes the timing of the action of the Kano state government, particularly as it relates to a very sensitive traditional institution like the Emir of Kano stool, as a big political blunder coming at a time our society is wobbling under the siege of insecurity, especially in a state such as Kano.
“The PDP calls for calm and circumspection from all quarters, especially, given the security and political stability concerns in our nation.”
The Emir was dethroned in the early hours of Monday after a protracted battle with Kano state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje who accused him of insubordination.
