Zamfara State governor, Abdulaziz Yari Abubakar has hit back at Emir of Kano, His Royal Highness, Sanusi Lamido 11 accusing the latter of hypocrisy.
Earlier Sanusi had condemned Gov. Yari after the latter traced Meningitis ravaging Zamfara State to alleged God’s anger on the people of the state for allegedly indulging in fornication.
Gov. launched a bitter diatribe against the emir in a statement released by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Enlightenment, Ibrahim Dosara, on Saturday, saying the former CBN governor is a hypocrite.
The statement read in part, ““Over time, we know our traditional fathers for their compassion.
“When their friends from far and near offer to assist them, they would rather the assistance was given to their people in cash or kind. But for a traditional ruler who identifies the problems of his people and utters these words: ‘We are in denial. The north-east and the north-west Nigeria are among the poorest parts of the world,’ and then when his friends bring help to his door steps, he asks for a Rolls Royce, there is a fundamental problem.”
