El-Rufai departs Kaduna, to visit Sanusi

Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has departed Kaduna city for Awe Local Government, Nasarawa State to visit the dethroned Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi

El-Rufai stated this in his Facebook post on Friday accompanied by a picture in his car.


An unconfirmed report from the Kaduna State government house said the governor was to visit the former Emir of Kano yesterday but he did not. Nasir El-Rufai had left the government house early Thursday for an unspecified journey which some of the security details termed a visit to the deposed Emir.

The governor has been a friend of the emir for decades.

He appointed Sanusi as the Pro-chancellor of the Kaduna State University and also made him the Vice-Chairman of the state’s investment board after Sanusi was dethroned.


The governor was among those who went to receive Sanusi in 2014 when the latter was suspended as the Central Bank Governor by former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Meanwhile, the Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday ordered the release of Sanusi, who was banished to Awe, a town in Nasarawa State.
