The embattled former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Shehu Sani, on Monday, said those behind the dethronement of the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, displayed “the intolerance and toxicity of the liquor of power”.
Sani said the Northern Elders Forum had waded into the misunderstanding between the deposed Emir and the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, but failed to make the two parties reach a truce.
He tweeted, “The removal of Emir Sanusi represents the incompatibility of the crown and conscience, the consequences of dissent against established norms and the heavy price of holding principles in our north. It also revealed the intolerance and toxicity of the liquor of power.”
The Northern Elders Peace keeping force led by General Abdulsalam sent to enforce a ceasefire and restore peace in the Civil war between the Forces of the Emir and that of the Governor failed in their mission;And they quietly withdrew unannounced,leaving behind an escalation.

If Governor Tambuwal has not been re-elected,the relatively mildly outspoken Sultan too could have been sacked.
