The Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has denied insulting President Buhari on social media.
The monarch debunked posts attribute to him on various platforms on the internet, where he alleged said Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) are failures.
Sanusi also said that he will continue to support the current administration and offer constructive criticism when the need arises.
He said “My attention has been drawn to a set of quotes attributed to me attacking the government of General Buhari and his party and praising opposition party, I do not know who is behind these quotes,” the monarch said.
“But they seem to be part of a new and insidious strategy where quotes are attributed to individuals in order to mischievously score cheap political points and plant disaffection between persons.
“These so-called reports never state exactly where my statements were made and in what forum or in whose presence, nor do the faceless cowards behind them have the courage to write their names.”
Adding that “It is a well-known fact that I was illegally suspended from my position as CBN Governor precisely because of my role in exposing the massive looting of our national treasury by the last administration, and that I have since shown my total support for the war against corruption being waged by the current administration.
“I am also convinced that everyone recognizes the remarkable improvement in the security situation in the North, the greatest evidence of which was the incident-free celebration of Eid el Kabir throughout the country.”
Sanusi Lamido Sanusi had earlier criticised the economic policy of President Buhari because of the recession.
