Ex- Kano Emir, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi made his first visit to Kaduna in his Rolls Royce more than five months after he was deposed by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State.
With a euphoric excitement, residents of Kaduna came out en mass to welcome the former Emir of Kano, as he paid a visit to the state.
Other cars that accompanied Sanusi are GMC Terrain, Renault Duster, Toyota Fortuner, Toyota Hilux, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Toyota Land Cruiser amongst others.
When the monarch was deposed on 9th March 2020, El-Rufai appointed Sanusi as Pro-Chancellor of Kaduna State University and Vice Chairman of the State Investment Promotion Council.
A close aide of the monarch, Dr Suleiman Shinkafi, said the former emir would be in Kaduna for a week. He’ll use the moment to receive visitors who had wanted to come to see him.
“Since his dethronement, many people have indicated their intentions to visit him in Lagos. But the monarch decided to relief them from the stress of travelling as far as Lagos,” he stressed.
Shinkafi also said the monarch will visit Sokoto to greet the Sultan Muhammad Sa’ad. Afterwards, he’ll move to Azare, Katagum where his late grandfather, Muhammad Sanusi I stayed when he was deposed by late Sardauna of Sokoto, Sir Ahmadu Bello.
Sanusi arrived at the Air Force base around 10.40 am. He can be seen alighting from a private jet with his fans waiting to welcome him.
Some traditional title holders from Kano and Kaduna were at the Airforce base to welcome him.
Immediately, the monarch entered his waiting Rolls-Royce. He was then conveyed to Government House where he is expected to meet with the Governor.
