Emir Sanusi spent N37m on telephone calls in 3 years - Emirate Council says

The Kano state Emirate Council says the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II spent N37 million on telephone calls since he ascended the throne three years ago. The Walin Kano and spokesperson of the emirate council, Mahe Bashir, disclosed this to newsmen while reacting to reports that the Emir has spent as much as N6 billion since he was enthroned in June 2014.

According to Mahe, the monarch paid N37 million to Airtel to enable him make calls which most times are international.

“It is true that the sum of N37,054,196.06 was paid to Airtel due to the fact that the emir has been identified with only one local mobile phone which he uses within and outside the country. Majority of the charges are that of roaming, which is normal. The telephones charges of the palace are paid by the council, particularly when it comes within the provision of the budget.”

Mahe also disclosed that on the advise of the state government, N142.8 million was used to purchase the Emir's bullet-proof cars. “This was as a result of the attack on the late Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, on his way back from Murtala Muhammed Mosque to the palace. The sum of N108 million was paid to the children of the late emir by the council, in respect of the late emir’s personal cars inherited by the present emir.

The cars now form part of the emirate council’s fleet in the palace” he said The Walin Kano also disclosed that about N152 million was spent to purchase furniture for the palace because those used by the Emir before Sanusi were removed and given to his children according to Islamic injunction. “The sum of N152,627,723 was paid to Dabo Gate for the procurement of furniture for the palace. After the demise of the emir, all his belongings, including the furniture, were removed and given to his children in accordance with Islamic injunction,” he said

The emirate spokesperson also dismissed allegations that the council spents billions of naira on chartered flight, adding that the council only chartered flight twice for the emir’s movement to Sokoto and Benin City. "The council chartered an air flight twice for His Highness for the following trips: In September 2014 to Sokoto, when the emir paid a traditional homage (Mubaya’a) to the Sultan of Sokoto after his turbaning as Emir of Kano and the council spent N4,651,000.

In January 2015 for the trip to Benin for his installation as chancellor of the University of Benin and it cost N9,071,000. All the trips were made a as a result of lack of scheduled flight at that time and it cost the council the sum of N13,722,00 as against alleged N9,071,000.”

These our leaders are all the same. They only raise alarm when they are not getting anything. Why chatter a flight when you must have been notified weeks before the event. Why won't you book in advance? May God save Nigeria

But he is the King of Kano. Tbh i dont see anything wrong in his spending. I mean the alleged N6 billion is just ridiculous. However, i dont see any supporting evidence to that allegation. So im ignoring that part. But, the bulletproof cars, the official private jet trips etc. if you dont expect a ruler to protect himself and be comfortable enough to perform his best during official matters then na wa for you.BTW how much do you think buhari has spent on official travels, armored vehicles, security, etc.?

I AM HONESTLY NOT SURPRISED WHAT IS HAPPENING TO HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS SANUSI. IT IS EXPECTED BECUASE OF HIS ENLIGHTENED STANCE ON ISSUES AND IGNORANT STATEMENTS MADE BY SUPPOSED NORTHERN "ELITES"......... IF A PROBE IS BEING DONE ON SANUSI THEY SHOULD ALSO PROBE THE SULTAN OF SOKOTO AND OTHER EMIRS CURRENTLY ON THE THRONE!!!! THE POOR MASSES IN THE NORTH ARE DELEBERATELY KEPT IN IGNORANCE AND FED WITH BULL-CRAP EVERYDAY FOR A REASON ....... TO KEEP THE UNDEFINED CASTE SYSTEM PREVALENT IN THE NORTH GOING!!!!!!! EMIR SANUSI ID NO SAINT BUT THE HYPOCRISY IN THE EMIRATE COUNCIL AND THOSE WHO HAVE INSTIGATED THIS PROBE IS LAUGHABLE AND RATHER COWARDLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
