Why I Can't Interfere In Gov. Ganduje & Emir Sanusi's Fight - Buhari

Gov. Ganduje & Emir Sanusi
President, Muhammadu Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has finally come out to speak concerning the prolonged dispute going on between Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje and the Emir of Kano state, Muhammadu Sanusi II, giving reasons why he cannot interfere in the matter.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Emir of Ningi, Alhaji Yunusa Danyaya, had on Thursday pleaded with Buhari to intervene in the matter in other to avoid humiliating their traditional institution.

The royal father made this call while speaking with newsmen at his palace in Ningi.

He said: 

“I am begging the President as a father to all to please in the name of Allah to intervene in the problem happening in Kano and settle this dispute between the emir and the governor.

“I have high hopes that Buhari will not allow the traditional institution to be humiliated and bastardised.”

Responding to the statement, Buhari through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, said that the Nigerian Constitution had barred him from interfering in a dispute that has already gotten to the House of Assembly.

He said: 

“I know my role as the President of Nigeria.

“By the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Governor of Kano State has his own roles, once a matter is in the hands of the House of Assembly (like in Kano), the President has no constitutional right to interfere.

“I am here by the Constitution, I swore by it, and I am going to stand by it. But let me tell you the bottom line of my understanding of the constitutional role is that peace and security of all Nigerians must be guaranteed, where the people are threatened, then I will use my constitutional powers.”
