The Second Republic politician, Alhaji Tanko Yakassai, has tasked the Kano Emir, HRH. Mohammad Sanusi II not to be shy over allegations of financial mismanagement levelled against him by the State government.

SECOND REPUBLIC POLITICIAN, MR. TANKO YAKASSAI

The Elder statesman, insisted that his refusal to submit himself to probe over the N4 billion would certainly not be helpful in this case as silence both in the Common Law and in Islam are deemed as consent.

Reacting to the reported query that was issued to the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi, on Thursday, the Yakassai observed that a query should not be a cause of worry or surprise as it is a normal process of establishing the truth in any matter.

He also urged him to respond to the content of the allegations against him and provide answers to the issues raised, saying that if someone raises a complaint against one, the correct thing to do is to give the respondent a chance to answer and defend himself.

Alhaji Tanko, who admitted that he read of the query in the media, recalled that part of the submissions of the Kano State Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Commission in its interim report was that the emir was not cooperating with their investigation.

But, the octogenarian, dismissed the suggestions that the Emir of Kano should resign at this stage, saying that it would surely not solve the problem as the accusations leveled against him would still be there even if he is no longer there as the Emir of Kano.

He also urged him to be objective and impartial in the discharge of their responsibilities irrespective of hoopla the scandal had generated.
