Barring any unexpected changes, President Muhammad Buhari has appointed Kano Emir, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Amirul Hajj and leader of the Federal Government delegation to the 2015 pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia.
The Emir was notified of the development when he recently visited the Presidential Villa in Abuja, where he met with the President.
The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, had previously held that position for several years. It was not clear why he was dropped for the Emir of Kano.
