Mujahid Asari Dokubo shared this picture on his face book page he wrote:

''So a dog can become an Emir? Congratulation Rabi'u Kwankwaso''

Alhaji Mujahid Asari Dokubo, the leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force, (NDPVF), and former militant warlord, has taken his support for President Goodluck Jonathan to another level by embarking on name calling, insults and outright slight on the revered and religious throne of the Kano Emirate.
This he did by calling Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, the former Central bank of Nigeria Governor who is now the Emir of Kano, a dog and even posting a picture of a turbaned dog

He also tweeted a congratulatory message to the All Progressive Congress, APC on their new Emir while also wondering if the late Emir died a natural death.
Asari is one of the supporters of President Goodluck Jonathan's government, which Sanusi is at loggerheads with.

On the same wall where he uploaded the pictures, he was insulted and slammed by his Facebook friends for disrespecting Islam and the Emir.

For those who do not know, Asari  believes that the country will be at war if Jonathan do not win the 2015 elections and has been vocal in his support of the president, often picking fights with anyone he sees as the president's enemy.



Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi Has been crowned as the Emir of Kano, he has subsequently chosen the name  Muhammadu Sunusi II. The presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) as well as the party leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, led other dignitaries whose presence to the colorful mini ceremony.
Meanwhile, the colourful coronation was successful even without the presence of any federal government delegations, nor, the attendance of Kano indigenes serving in top federal government positions.
Malam Sanusi was before his coronation taken through the rigorous process of the oath of office. The Chief Imam of Kano, Prof. Sani Zaharadeen, while administering the oath of office on the new emir, accompanied by the kingmakers, presented him a copy of the Holy Quran.
Sanusi, who was also adorned with the royal regalia, was eventually regularised by the kingmakers of the Emirate Council. This was followed by the paying of homage to him by other royal personalities who took turns to do him the customary honour.
The new Emir, in his acceptance speech delivered after the coronation, appreciated all those who contributed to his becoming the 14th Emir of Kano in the Fulani dynasty, adding that it was Allah that gives power to whoever he wishes and takes away power from whoever he so wishes.
“I will not stop without praying for the repose soul of our late Emir Ado Bayero, who was humble, industrious, humane and respectful. May Allah grant him Jannatul-fir-daus and his ancestors alike. It is instructive to know that out of the many years of Kano Emirate rule, our late Emir took about one over four of the years, he spent about 51 years on the throne,” Sanusi noted.
He further assured that he would do his possible best as the Emir of Kano to strengthen the peaceful co-existence between all adherents of different faith and ethnic nationalities in the country.
While praying that God should give Nigeria the best leaders as elections draw nearer, the monarch called on politicians to ensure that the forthcoming election is peaceful and credible.
In his remarks, Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of Kano State described the appointment of Sanusi as the Emir of Kano as a collective decision of the people, noting that he was appointed to ascend the exalted throne on merit.
He maintained that his decision to appoint Sanusi out of the names presented to him was borne out of the conviction that the former CBN governor was equal to the task, saying his vast array of experience was enough to propel Kano to greater heights.
Kwankwaso, who used the occasion to pay glowing tribute to late Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, emphasized that the late emir had firmly stood against all forms of injustice and persecution.
Other APC big wigs that attended the ceremony that saw Emir Sanusi receiving the staff of office include Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi; Speaker, House of Representatives, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal; and Yobe State Governor, Ibrahim Geidam.
