Awe:El-Rufai Visits Dethroned Emir Of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II

The governor of Kaduna state, Governor Nasir El-Rufai has paid a visit to the dethroned Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II in Awe Local Government of Nasarawa State.

 Awe town was where the dethroned Emir of Kano was vanished to, after his dethronement by Governor Ganduje of Kano State a few days ago. 

The solidarity visit by the Governor of Kaduna, is coming a few days after the Kaduna State government announced two job offers to the dethroned Emir of Kano, with one being that of the Chancellor of the Kaduna State Unversity, and the second, is the Vice-Chairman into the board of Kaduna Investment Promotion Agency, KADIPA.

El-Rufai in a statement released on Wednesday 11th March 2020, by his Special Adviser, Muyiwa Adekeye, said the statement from Sir Kashim Ibrahim House announced the new appointment. The statement from the Sir Kashim Ibrahim House as released by Muyiwa reads:

“On behalf of the government and people of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufai is delighted to appoint His Highness, Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Chancellor of the Kaduna State University. In public life, His Highness has demonstrated a strong commitment to education.

“The Kaduna State Government has no doubt that as Chancellor, His Highness Muhammadu Sanusi, would provide symbolic and substantive leadership in raising the profile of KASU as an emerging centre of learning on the national and global level.

“This appointment of the new chancellor comes at an exciting moment for KASU which is transiting to a multicampus structure with presence across the state.

“HH Muhammadu Sanusi II replaces the pioneer Chancellor, HH Malam Tagwai Sambo, the Chief of Moro’a, who has served in that role since 2005.

Governor El-Rufai has conveyed the profound appreciation of the government to HH Malam Tagwai Sambo for the long years of distinguished service to KASU and the state.

“Malam Nasir El-Rufai welcomes with gratitude the consent of His Highness Muhammadu Sanusi to serve as Chancellor of KASU and as Vice-Chairman of the board of KADIPA.

“The Kaduna State Government is grateful that HH Muhammadu Sanusi II continues to support and assist the realisation of the governance objectives of the Kaduna State Government.”

Governor El-Rufai shared some photos from his visit to Awe on social media, as pressure continues to mount on the Federal Government, especially the police to free the dethroned Emir of kano, who is allegedly being held in Awe against his wish.
