Full Text of Acceptance speech by Dethroned Emir of Kano Sanusi
“The throne of an emir is not permanent,every king and leader should know this.
If it was a permanent throne,I wouldn’t have been the emir of Kano.
Before I came someone was emir and before him someone else was there.
Whenever God says your time on the throne is over,if you don’t leave with your legs,people will carry your body out of the palace.
It is God that gives power and it is God that takes power”
