President Buhari and Governor Ganduje’s aides have reacted to a cartoon on Sanusi’s dethronement which showed a Ganduje-like character in a cage captioned ‘Kano’.
The cartoon drawn by Mustapha Bulama of Daily Trust showed a Ganduje-like character locking up the cage, while another character representing Sanusi walks away saying ‘you can stay there.’
However reacting to the cartoon, Director-General of Media and Communications for Kano state government, Salihu Tanko-Yakasai stated that the cartoon is a mockery and insult to the entire people. He added that Kano is not a cage, but a state with a thousand year old history.
I see this as a mockery & insult to the entire people of Kano. Kano is NOT a cage, its a state with a thousand year old history, that has engaged in trade & commerce with the entire world for centuries, that has produced great leaders & scholars, Kano will continue to be GREAT.
President Buhari’s media aide, Bashir Ahmad who also reacted to cartoon, questioned the depiction of Kano as a cage.
The entire Kano not the throne as a cage? Maybe I don’t understand the message
