He made this known while appearing as a Guest on Channels Television Sunrise Daily programme on Tuesday,
“They (government) wanted it to be a quiet thing. That is the standard, the law. A deposed emir has to leave the state as it was done in the past but I don’t know what happened in the palace that caused the delay.
“At the initial stage, the emir wasn’t willing to leave the palace and that was why you saw what we saw with the security forces and what have you. If he had left willingly, I don’t think you would have seen such a reaction from the security apparatus,” he said.
He said though the situation was tense, normalcy has been restored in the state.
Speaking on why Mr Sanusi’s removal became necessary, Mr Yakasai said no government in power would condone his criticism.
“The emir had access to the governor and could have advised him if he wanted to, but unfortunately, he only finds podiums and stages as the only means to advise the government, which is not right.
“So, you can portray it as political or whatever, but the fact remains that no one would allow such disrespect and open criticism when you have access to him,” he said.
