Sanusi didn’t inherit N4bn –Emirate Council

Sanusi Lamido Sanusi

The Kano Emirate Council on Monday dismissed as false the  reports that the  Emir of Kano, Mallam Muhammadu Sanusi (11) inherited N4bn  on ascending the throne.

It said the monarch inherited the sum of N1.8bn not N4bn.

Prior to ascending the throne, the council said it had in its coffers the sum of N2.8bn in different banks.

Walin Kano, Alhaji Mahe  Wali, who addressed reporters  on behalf of the emir in Kano on Monday,  said out of the said amount, the council withdrew N981, 784, 503.79 for the payment of the late Alhaji Ado Bayero Royal City project, leaving a balance of N1.8bn.

Other expenditures, he explained,  were  the payment of  N152m for the procurement of furniture for the palace, adding that after the passing  of Emir Ado Bayero, his furniture were removed and distributed to his heirs in accordance with Islamic injunction.

He also  said N108m  was paid to the heirs of the late emir by the council in respect of his personal cars inherited by Sanusi.

Wali added  that the payment of N15,458,60.00 was  not for travel expenses but rather for the payment of  the construction and renovation of the   Fadacin Dare wing of the palace.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
