The New Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, ‘Manages’ To Gets Turbaned In Kano

  Former CBN Governor Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has arrived for his turban ceremony in Kano today, against all odds.
 As Emir of the northern city of Kano, Sanusi becomes the second-highest Islamic figure after the Sultan of Sokoto in Nigeria. He replaces Ado Bayero, who died on June 6 at the age of 83 after reigning more than half a century. Gov Kwankwaso, while speaking as the turbaning process said:
The appointment of an emir is not a political issue. It is unfortunate that some enemies of 
Kano State attempted to politicise this process.”

Meanwhile, according to another report , Sanusi had on Sunday narrowly escaped being arrested by security operatives at his personal residence in Kano hours after he was appointed to the coveted throne
