Sanusi clarifies report on Peter Obi

The 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi ll, has debunked a statement making the rounds endorsing the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.

The viral post had Sanusi blasting the All Progressives Congress presidential candidates (APC), Bola Tinubu, and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Atiku Abubakar, describing them as unfit to be Nigeria’s next president.

But, the Chief of Staff to the deposed Emir of Kano, Munir Sunusi Bayero, in a statement on Monday said Sanusi did not write the viral post.

The statement read: “Our attention has been drawn to an article circulating the online media space analysing the motives of the three presidential candidates in the 2023 elections.

“We would like to emphatically state that this was not authored by His Highness, Khalifa Muhammad Sanusi II as is being widely attributed.” Bayero noted that the former CBN Governor does not bear Sanusi Lamido Sanusi anymore.

“Consequently, given the need to set the records straight, we hereby state for the benefit of those unaware that the Khalifa is not officially called Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, but as HH Muhammad Sanusi II.”

He admonished readers to scrutinise any information on social media to avoid false and misleading information.

“While we restate that we have no affiliation to the article itself in any way, we staunchly continue to place our faith and trust in Allah (Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala) to continue guiding His Highness Sanusi as an elder statesman in his socio-economic Advocacy for all Nigerians, Africans and humanity in general,” the statement concluded.
