About 48 hours after the emergence of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as the REAL Emir of Kano, President Goodluck Jonathan has yet to congratulate him on his emergence as the usual protocol demands.
Jonathan’s plan to travel to Kano to pay condolence to the family of the late Emir and members of the emirate on Monday was put off abruptly. Sources say the trip was aborted because of Sanusi’s emergence.
The combination of Sanusi as Emir and Governor Kwankwaso, who defected from PDP to APC would indeed spell doom for Jonathan’s electoral misfortune in Northern Nigeria in 2015 and he is very angry.
Sanusi’s emergence, according to sources, is seen in the Presidency as a big blow to Jonathan’s fortune in 2015 and this could mean that Jonathan can’t win the Presidential election.
Sanusi is still contesting his suspension and his probe in court as of the time of his emergence as the Emir.
