The emir of Kano, His Royal Highness, Muhammad Sanusi II, has revealed that he was slapped for exposing stealing when he discovered that a matron at his school, Saint Ann Primary School, has been stealing from his school box and confronted her.
He said his boldness to confront her earned him a slap from the angry matron.
Emir Sanusi stated this on Sunday in Kano. He recalled his past experiences most especially at his alma mata, Saint Ann School, and disclosed that he was about seven or eight years old when he and his colleagues discovered that their biscuits and other provisions repeatedly kept on missing. He added that he and his colleagues came to the conclusion that the matron who had access to their belongings must be stealing from them.
Sanusi said that he had one day discovered that his box was emptied by unknown person and pledged to confront the school matron. He recalled that he led the first demonstration at the age of seven at Saint Ann, School, Kaduna, Kaduna State.
According to him, the school was initially a girls only school until it incorporated boys. The school authority permitted the boys students to use the school dormitory to keep their belongings and a matron was appointed to supervise and took care of the boys’ boxes.
Emir Sanusi described himself as the person who always talks about missing items. He said that it has been difficult for him or any other person to express the enormity of what Allah has done for him. It would be recalled that since he became emir of Kano, Sanusi had made it clear that the position comes from God.
According to him, it is not because one is clever or connected, that he is favoured with appointment but at the prerogative of the Creator to give to whoever He so wishes.
On the question of his knowledge of the Bible, Sanusi II responded that he was the best in Bible Knowledge and had scored a distinction in Bible Knowledge in his common entrance examination.
