Sam Amadi, the Director of the Abuja School of Social and Political Thoughts, has reiterated his stance on traditional leadership in Nigeria. During his gubernatorial campaign, Amadi made it clear that he would not acknowledge any form of traditional ruler.

This declaration was shared in a post on his official X handle(formerly known as Twitter) on Thursday, following the reinstatement of former Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido. In his post, Amadi criticized the ongoing subordination of traditional institutions under colonial-era practices, perpetuated today through gubernatorial recognition. He asserted that traditional rulership in Nigeria has lost its dignity.

He wrote on his page;

“When I was running for Governor, I said I will not recognize traditional rulers in any form. Each community should be free to elect/appoint its traditional ruler according to its tradition and maintain it. The state should have not role at all. Its autonomy should be guaranteed. The subordination of traditional institution under colonial rule continues today with gubernatorial recognition. If Sanusi is appointed then he can be removed tomorrow. There’s no more dignity in any traditional rulership in Nigeria….DÍSCOV£R MOR£
