A former representative of Kaduna Central senatorial district at the Senate, Shehu Sani has advised deposed Emir of Kano, Mohammed Sanusi II, to avoid partisan politics, at least for now.
The former lawmaker gave the advice in a post on Twitter on Saturday while reacting to rumours that Sanusi may replace President Muhammadu Buhari as the number one citizen of Nigeria.
Shehu Sani wrote on Twitter, “Rest well in the comfort of your family without the burden and the lice of the turban and the gown.
“Avoid individuals and groups trying to drag you into partisan politics and avoid being used as a ladder.
“It’s enough being a hero, they should look for a martyr elsewhere,” he added.
The comments by Shehu Sani come hours after Sanusi, said on Saturday he had put his recent travails behind him.
Sanusi, however, said he can return to the throne if he so desires, because of Kano State government’s poor handling of his last Monday’s removal as the 14th Emir of the ancient city.
The deposed monarch, who stated these after receiving his dethronement letter, blasted the government for the poor quality of the document.
