Kingsley Moghalu Reveals Why Ganduje "bastardized” Emir Sanusi’s throne

The presidential candidate for Young Progressive Party ( YPP) has lend his voice to the power tussle going on in Kano state.

While speaking at the Sikiru Kayode Adetona third annual professorial chair lecture, held on Friday at Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, Kingsley revealed that Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje interference in a traditional setting was to silence an independent voice speaking for the people.

“We have seen something happened recently in
Kano state, that is the emir of Kano’s throne has been balkanised and bastardised. We know why; it is to quash an independent voice, so this raises the question of the roles of traditional rulers.

“The government should no longer appoint traditional rulers. Let the traditional rulers be selected by their community and recognised by the government.

“In a restructured Nigeria, with a new constitution, traditional rulers should have a formal role, that is, advisory roles. This is what we should do. We cannot make traditional rulers errand boys for politicians and when they refuse to play that role we begin to play around with them,” Moghalu said
