All Nigeria Latest News reports that Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, the 14th Emir of Kano State on Wednesday, paid a historic visit to Kano State.

Sanusi II’s visit occurred just three years after his removal from the throne. The former Emir was deposed on March 9, 2020, during the administration led by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

The leader of the Tijjaniyya Order in Nigeria, arrived at the Aminu Kano International Airport and moved straight to his mother’s residence which is located along the Ibrahim Dabo Road.

Video footage captured the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, adorned in full emir regalia, exchanging pleasantries with various delegations, including family members, traditional title holders, and well-wishers.

Upon clarification, the former Emir explained that he was in Kano on his way to Dutse. Due to adverse weather conditions preventing a direct flight to Jigawa State, he made a stopover in Kano.

“I couldn’t go directly to Jigawa State because of bad weather, and as I touched down in Kano, hundreds of people stormed the place and asked me to at least go and greet my mother which I did,” Sanusi said.

He, however, reminded that as a citizen he has the right to go anywhere in Nigeria. Furthermore, he said there was a court judgement that allows him to visit any state he wants in the country.

Recall that after the ex-monarch was deposed on allegations bordering on insubordination, Sanusi was “banished” by Ganduje to Awe in Nasarrawa State, an action that the Federal High Court in Abuja declared as illegal, unlawful and unconstitutional.

He has since returned to Abuja after the memorable visit.
