The deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammed Sanusi II has been accused by former president Goodluck Jonathanâ€™s ex-aide, Reno Omokri of allegedly squandering state resources while his subjects lived in abject poverty.
According to Omokri, when Sanusi was still a traditional ruler, he expended 37 million naira on phone calls, 152 million on furniture and 200 million naira on cars.
While calling out the ex-royal leader over his alleged lavish lifestyle, Omokri also asked if he spent anything on the almajiriâ€™s for whom he has been advocating access to education.
The author and pastor taking to Twitter, blasted Sanusi for failing to build a single school to educate almajiriâ€™s and talakwas.
â€œSanusi talked passionately about educating almajiri and talakawas. Yet, whilst he was Emir, he built not even a single school for them.
â€œThis is even as he spent billions of Naira renovating his palace. Money that could have built 500 schools for the talakawa he â€˜lovesâ€™ so much!â€
â€œAs Emir, Sanusi spent billions renovating his palace, and â‚¦37 million on phone calls in 3 years. He furnished his palace with â‚¦152.6 million. Bought vehicles of almost â‚¦200 million. All at taxpayers expense. How much did he spend on almajiri he loved so much?â€
