CUPP To Donate N3m To Sanusi’s Legal Team, Describes Dethronement As Barbaric

The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has stated that it has set aside the sum of N3m for the legal team of the dethroned Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido if he decides to seek redress in the law court. Speaking to newsmen on Tuesday, the spokesman of the group, Ikenga Ugochinyere further described the removal as barbaric and unconstitutional.

“The Nigerian opposition coalition received with shock, the news of the illegal and arbitrary dethronement and purported banishment of the Emir of Kano Muhammad Sanusi II by the APC led Government of Umar Abdullahi Ganduje. “We wish to state that the dethronement and banishment which had the tacit support of the APC-led Federal Government was barbaric, illegal, unconstitutional and a grave assault against our constitutional democracy and the fundamental rights guaranteed under sections 34,35, 36, 38, 39, 40,41, and 43 of the I999 Constitution as amended and a bold move to desecrate an ancient revered traditional institution,” it said in a prepared text read to newsmen.

 The text read further: “The Emir was not given right to be heard which renders the action of the Kano State Executive Council illegal, arbitrary, unconstitutional and null and void.
