The former Emir Of Kano, Sanusi was dethroned because of disrespecting the State Governor and his office, According to SA on Media to Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.
Salihu Tanko-Yakasai, says Sanusi’s dethronement as Emir had been long in coming because he had taken to disrespecting the governor and his office, shunning events organised by the Kano state government and that the Emir had brazenly displayed acts amounting to insubordination time and again.
“Emir Sanusi had direct access to Governor Ganduje…but preferred to take to every podium and forum to air his views and criticize the government,” Tanko-Yakasai says.”
Governor Ganduje couldn’t just stand the Emir anymore and the Emir had long gotten under the governor’s skin.
The relationship between the governor and the Emir took a turn for the worse after Sanusi all but openly endorsed the PDP candidate, Abba Kabir-Yusuf, ahead of the Kano governorship and rerun elections in March of 2019.
As an economist and reformer, Sanusi is the kind of public intellectual who wears his heart on his sleeves and who loathes politicians and politics to a degree.

However, In a BBC interview he granted immediately after his stint as CBN Governor, Sanusi swore never to become a politician.
“I am not ready, I don’t want it and I’m not interested (in politics). I feel that if I go into politics, it would destroy everything I have done.
I cannot survive one year in that space. I think it takes a particular type of skill to be a politician and I don’t have those skills,” he had said.
Meanwhile, The New Media aide of President Muhammadu Buhari, Tolu Ogunlesi said;
“a sitting governor can dethrone anybody because they have the power to. That is the way the system is set up. Nobody is above being dethroned.
Governors formally appoint them, present them staff of office, fund their offices. Whether this should be so is another matter entirely.”
