The President’s relationship with the Emir of Kano takes a new, positive turn
President Goodluck Jonathan and a former Central Bank Governor, Lamido Sanusi, on Wednesday met for the first time since he (Sanusi) became the Emir of Kano.The former CBN boss was one of the northern traditional rulers who joined Jonathan in the Presidential Villa, Abuja for the breaking of Ramadan fast.
The traditional rulers were led by the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III. Sanusi led others in a special prayer for peace during the short event held inside the President’s residence, Punch reports.
Jonathan later took turn to shake hands with all the traditional rulers in attendance, including Sanusi to the admiration of his aides.
Both the president and Emir of Kano have had past feuds. This is a good move.
