Buhari didnt order El-Rufai to give Sanusi Appointments, i was just countering a false Narrative>>Presidential aide

The Presidential aide on Nee Media, Bashir Ahmad has cleared the air about the said order he initially tweeted that Buhari gave Kaduna State Governor,  Malam Nasiru Ahmad El-Rufai to give Dethroned Kano Emir, Muhammad Sanusi II Appointments.


Bashir said its not true, he was just using it to sarcastically counter a false narrative that Buhari Ordered Ganduje to Depose Sanusi.

Bashir Said in a Tweet

After few tweets on ‘Buhari ordered Ganduje’ and ‘Buhari ordered el-Rufai’ I want to put out this DISCLAIMER, BUHARI DIDN’T ORDER EL-RUFAI, I just used it sarcastically to counter the false narrative that HE ORDERED GANDUJE, which was untrue, malicious and politically motivated.

The President does not have a history of intervening in the affairs of any state in the country, unless the issue at hand is of national consequence. On such matters which impinge on national security, he has a duty of involvement as the law stipulates. – Presidency


As outlined in the Constitution, the appointment or removal of emirs and other traditional leaders is strictly within the jurisdiction of state governments. It is unfair and disingenuous of opposition politicians to try to link the situation in Kano to the federal government.
