It has been a thrilling day of maneuvering worthy of an episode of “House of Cards”.
Earlier today, erroneous news reports were distributed to media outlets including BellaNaija stating that the new Emir of Kano was the son of the late Emir, Sanusi Ado Bayero.
It has now been confirmed that former Central Bank of Nigeria Governor Sanusi Lamido Sanusi is the new Emir of Kano.
