Governor of Kaduna state, Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai, is currently heading to Awe town, Nasarawa state, to visit the dethroned emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II.

El-Rufai had earlier visited Sanusi in Awe where he is presently residing after he was dethroned as Emir of Kano and banished from the city on Monday.

The governor left Kaduna on Thursday morning and headed to Awe, Daily Trust reported, quoting an unnamed security source.

Recall that Sanusi got two appointments from the Kaduna State Government led by el-Rufai less than 48 hours after his dethronement.

He was first appointed the Vice-Chairman of the Kaduna Investment and Promotions Agency (KADIPA) on Tuesday, before being appointed Chancellor of the Kaduna State University (KASU) on Wednesday.

Sanusi moved to Awe LGA from Loko community in Nasarawa LGA of Nasarawa State on Wednesday.

Both men share a great friendship, which the deposed Emir alluded to in 2017.

Taking to Instagram, he wrote: “It’s a great pleasure watching my friend and brother Governor @nelrufai (Nasir Ahmad Elrufai) talk to us about his vision for making ‘Kaduna Great Again.”
