The emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has come under attack from Fani Kayode for blaming the immediate past president, Goodluck Jonathan, for not supporting the independence of a Palestinian state during his administration.
Emir Muhammad Sanusi II, had on Wednesday, August 10 urged the federal government under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari to back the need for a free Palestinian state.
Speaking at a one-day international conference on Palestine with the theme, “Palestine question; Issues, Challenges and Actions, the former governor of the CBN said the immediate past president was to be held responsible for the failure of Palestinian state, which ought to have put an end to the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories at the UN security council. However, former minister of aviation, Fani Kayode, reacting to Emir Sanusi’s comments via his twitter handle called on the emir to shut up, insisting that the land in contention belongs to Israel and not Palestine.

“Would someone pl tell this man to just shut up. The land belongs to Israel and not Palestine. God bless Israel.”
In another development, Fani Kayode alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari plans to break up Nigeria if crude oil is found in the north. Recall that the president recently directed the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to begin the search for oil in the north-east. However, Fani Kayode reacting to Buhari’s directive via his twitter handle on Thursday, August 11, said if the president finds oil, he and the north will be the first to call for a breakup of the country.
