Shahida Sanusi, daughter of the recently-dethroned Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, had predicted her father’s dethronement.
She made the prediction in 2007 during a speech at the first Annual Chibok Girls Lecture in Abuja.
According to Shahida, she knew her father will not stay on the throne until death.
She said despite Sanusi’s desire, which is also the desire of all emirs, to remain on the throne for the rest of his life, his lifestyle would not let it happen.
Back then she described her father as a man of integrity, who would not trade his conscience for the throne.
“My father never fails to fight. He fights for progress, liberty, justice and equality. So those people that think they know my father should know that he will never be silenced by blackmail and intimidation,” she said.
“He lost his position once when he was suspended from CBN. I don’t know if you can remember the famous quote when he said you can suspend a man but you cannot suspend the truth.
