The 14th emir of Kano and former Central Bank Governor, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has discredited viral whatsApp broadcast attributed to him analysing three of the presidential contenders of the 2023.

Munir Sanusi Bayero (Danburam Kano), the Chief of Staff to Khalifa Muhammad Sanusi II denied the message in a statement he signed.

“Our attention has been drawn to an article circulating the online media space analysing the motives of the three presidential candidates in the 2023 elections. We would like to emphatically state that this was not authored by His Highness, Khalifa Muhammad Sanusi II as is being widely attributed.

“Consequently, given the need to set the records straight, we hereby state for the benefit of those unaware that the Khalifa is not officially referred to as Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, but as HH Muhammad Sanusi II.

“We also take this opportunity to encourage readers to scrutinize the information they find online to identify false and misleading information purported to have come from eminent personalities and thought leaders. While we restate that we have no affiliation to the article itself in any way, we staunchly continue to place our faith and trust in Allah ( Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala) to continue guiding His Highness as an elder statesman in his socio-economic Advocacy for all Nigerians, Africans and humanity in general.”
