Jeremiah Useni, a senator from Plateau state and friend of the late Sani Abacha, who removed Ibrahim Dasuki as sultan of Sokoto, says the late traditional ruler believed in ‘I chop, you chop’, a slangy expression for fairness.
Useni, a retired general and former minister of the federal capital territory, said it was unfortunate that Dasuki was removed as sultan of Sokoto by the administration in which he served.
He said the late sultan was his friend, and that he was a good man.
At a session to honour the deceased at the senate on Wednesday, Useni said: “I remember Dasuki for one thing, he once said: ‘If you chop, I chop, no problem, but if I chop, you don’t chop, there is problem’.
“Unfortunately, he was removed by our administration, but I don’t want to go into the details of that?.”
