Sanusi Lamido Dethronement: Three Untouchable Kings In Nigeria


Ever since Sanusi Lamido Sanusi was ousted as the emir of Kano, by the Kano State Government, I have been reading comments in here like…

“they can never try this with (Inserts the name of one compound chief from a remote village)”


“the government will never attempt to uninstall (inserts the name of a family chief)”

Bla Bla Bla…

See, there is Royalty and there is Royalty. There are momentous levels to this game that goes beyond our 50 kobo sentiments…

The aura and charisma a traditional stool oozes, together with its historical progression and significance is how it will be treated…

Apart from these SS3 boys below:

Ooni of Ife
Oba of Benin (this particular one is nobody’s mate)
Sultan of Sokoto


Your traditional ruler is at the mercy of the state government. The government will install and uninstall him like a mobile app and nothing will happen�… It is a very bitter pill to swallow. I know that. But let’s resist the urge to argue about “realism” and “idealism” today… On this discourse, please ignore what is ideal and rather talk about what is obtainable.
