Sen Ida supports Emir Sanusi, says even Prophet Muhammad SAW was persecuted by people close him
A one-time Senator of Katsina state Central and also the Danmajen Katsina Senator Ibrahim Ida has in an interview with Premium Times throw his back behind the currently embattled Emir of Kano HRH Muhammadu Sanusi II.
In the said interview, the former senator who recently decamped from PDP to the ruling party APC said “He (Emir Sanusi) is intelligent, educated, focussed and a great revolutionary.”
He further stated that “revolutionaries were first rejected and persecuted by people very close to them. Prophet Muhammed (Peace Be Upon Him) was persecuted by his relatives.”
“With the kinds of problems we have in the north, you can’t expect somebody like Emir Muhammadu Sanusi to sit down and keep his mouth shut. This man is performing his role as a leader. Gone were those days when our leaders will see something bad or any social ills and yet keep their mouth shut. I wish all other emirs will emulate him. Let them talk about the realities of today and tomorrow, not the realities of yesterday.” He said.
