The 16th Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, has expressed indifference toward the possibility of being dethroned again, emphasizing that his fate lies in God's hands.

Sanusi's tenure has been marked by political turbulence, notably when former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje dethroned him in 2020 due to a personal dispute. However, Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf reinstated Sanusi, while the 15th Emir, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, is contesting his dethronement in court.

In an interview with *Saturday Sun*, Sanusi remarked on the uncertainty of his position. "For me, even now that I am here, only God knows how long I will be here. I can die tomorrow. Another governor can come tomorrow and say that he has removed me, it doesn’t matter."

Sanusi expressed satisfaction that the emirate's historical legacy remains intact despite the political upheaval. "I am happy if he does not touch the emirate. I am happy that I will not leave a history that it was during my time that these 1000 years of history was destroyed. So, I am grateful to this government, grateful to this Assembly that they have corrected that, that we have the emirate restored to what it was and Insha’Allah that when I die or when I leave, the person who inherits will inherit what we had. It’s about the system, not about me or about any individual."

Reflecting on his four-year absence from the throne, Sanusi shared insights on personal growth and resilience. "Life is always a continuous process of learning and relearning. And for me, I had always believed, as they say, that we should not waste a crisis. So, anytime I have a crisis, it’s an opportunity to do something else."

During his time away, Sanusi was far from idle. "In the last four years, I’ve not been idle. In fact, I had just completed writing a PhD Thesis at the University of London, a week before I returned to Kano. I will be going back next month to conclude some things because I will be graduating in September."

Sanusi's statements underscore his commitment to the emirate's enduring legacy and his pragmatic approach to the uncertainties of his role.
