Former Kano State governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, said his successor, Abudllahi Ganduje felt inferior to dethroned Kano Emir, Sanusi Lamido.
Kwankwaso averred this via a statement entitled, ‘Ganduje and the blabbering of an impostor’, his Principal Private Secretary, Muhammad Inuwa, released.
Recall that it was during the ex-governor’s time in Kano saddle that Lamido was made the emir. Then, Ganduje was the deputy governor.
Kwankwaso’s diatribe against the governor was in response to the statement by governor that he removed the former Central Bank of Nigeria governor as Emir to save the traditional institution at an event in Abuja where he added that Sanusi was in the first place not appointed on merit.
Responding via the said statement, Inuwa released, Kwankwaso hurled vitriol at Ganduje saying the governor was beneath Sanusi in terms of knowledge and progressive ideal and usually felt small in the midst of the ex-CBN governor.
The statement reads partly: “Certainly, everyone that knows Governor Ganduje will attest that he is not a progressive and hence that was why Kwankwaso deliberately refused to consult him on the choice of Muhammad Sanusi II as new Emir.
“We know that Ganduje is averse to everything that Emir Sanusi II represents (knowledge, wisdom, experience, progressive ideals, and the love for the common man), and we know that Ganduje always feels diminished and inferior in the presence of the Emir, and we know that Ganduje harbours a pathological hatred for the Kano traditional Institution, and we know that Ganduje was madly obsessed with reversing everything that Kwankwaso did in the state.”
