El-Rufai and Sanusi
A report by Daily Trust has shown that the Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai has declared dethroned Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II as a global citizen who is well connected and known all over the world.
El-Rufai, who was in Awe on Friday, said he came to show solidarity to the deposed emir.
He attended the Friday prayer in Awe, which was led by Sanusi II.
“His Highness Sanusi is a global citizen. I am here to show solidarity,” he said.
El-Rufai and Sanusi II left Awe for Lafia on Friday.
The dethroned Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II regained his freedom, few hours after a Federal High Court in Abuja ordered his immediate release.
It will be recalled that the deposed Emir was taken to Awe in Nassarwa state after his dethronement by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano state.
He was dethroned over alleged disrespect to the office of the governor and other government agencies.
