‘Take heart’ – Obasanjo consoles dethroned Sanusi

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, has consoled Lamido Sanusi, the dethroned emir of Kano State.

Mr Sanusi was booted out from office today by the Kano State Executive Council headed by Umar Ganduje, the state governor.

The traditional ruler is accused of insubordination.

In a letter signed by the former president on Monday, he advised the former Central Bank Governor to accept what happened to him in good faith.

He described the development as sad and good.

“It is said because it was underserved. It is good because you have paid the price,” Obasanjo said in the epistle.

“My prayer is that God should give you the fortitude and the courage to continue on the part you have chosen for yourself in the best interest of our country and humanity.

“Please accept, Your Royal Highness, the assurance of my highest consideration,” Obasanjo wrote.
