Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna state, says Muhammadu Sanusi II, the deposed emir of Kano, can go anywhere, including Kano.

After his dethronement, there were reports that he would not be allowed into Kano for at least three months.

But fielding questions from journalists in Awe, Nasarawa state, on Friday, the governor said a federal capital territory high court has ruled that Sanusi can go anywhere.

“As you know the federal high court in Abuja today declared his detention illegal and unconstitutional and his banishment also in violation of the constitution, so he is free,” el-Rufai said.

“He can live anywhere he wants including Kano city, if he wants. But we are on our way to Abuja. It is quite likely that the emir proceeds to Lagos which was his preferred destination from day one.

“From the day he was informed of his deposition, it was his wish to go to Lagos because part of his family is now in Lagos. And by the grace of God we’re on our way to Lagos.”

Explaining why he appointed Sanusi vice-chairman of Kaduna Investment Promotion Agency (KADIPA) after he was dethroned, el-Rufai said as emir his duty was to bring investors to Kano.

El-Rufai added that with Sanusi free from the throne, he can help bring investors and investment to Kaduna.

He also said Sanusi has been with him from his teenage years and has never left him, stating that he also cannot leave the ex-emir at this time.

    Certainly that practice of banishment is archaic , hence should be stopped henceforth. Thanks to the court order restoring the fundamental rights of the deposed emir. We are eagerly waiting for him to unfold his plans for freeing the country especially the North from the shackles of underdevelopment, poverty and lack of patriotism.

    El Rufai shows his credentials as a true friend; such persons are few in this world.
