Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, is on his way to visit the dethroned Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, in Awe, Nasarawa State.
A tweet by the media office of the Kaduna Governor shows a picture of the governor inside a vehicle said to be heading to Awe village in Nasarawa State.
The deposed Emir is a close friend of Governor El-Rufai.
The Kaduna governor recently appointed Sanusi as the Pro-chancellor of the Kaduna State University and also made him the Vice-Chairman of the state’s investment board.
This was after Sanusi was dethroned and banished by the Kano State government.
Also, on February 16, 2020, Sanusi delivered a thought-provoking speech on the socio-economic challenges confronting the northern region during the 60th birthday anniversary of El-Rufai in Kaduna State.
