Sanusi reprimands Kaduna government official for calling him “former emir”


It was Muhammad Sani Abdallahi, who was Chief of Staff at the time of the event, who introduced Sanusi to the public as “the former emir of Kano.”

And Sanusi, who apparently knew a cabinet reshuffle of Governor El-Rufai was imminent, didn’t like the way he was approached.

“When I listened to the Chief of Staff … I’ll call him former Chief of Staff … you’ll understand why I call you ‘old’ later … Next time, don’t don’t call me ‘old emir’. ‘There is no such thing’, Sanusi snapped.

Abdullahi was one of many Kaduna political candidates redeployed on Monday, October 11, 2021 during a major cabinet reshuffle. He was redeployed to the planning and budget committee.

Jaafaru Sani, Thomas Gyang, Halima Lawal, Ibrahim Hussaini, Shehu Usman Muhammad, Muhammad Sani Abdullahi, Kabir Mato and Idris Nyam were assigned respectively to the ministries of the environment, works, education, agriculture, local communities, businesses, innovation and sports.

Balaraba Aliyu-Inuwa was appointed administrator, Metropolitan Authority of Zaria; Muhammad Hafiz Bayero as director, Kaduna Capital Territory; and Phoebe Sukai Yayi as administrator, Kafanchan Municipal Authority.
