One of my daughters wants to be the next emir of Kano – Sanusi

The second most ranked Muslim leader in Nigeria, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has disclosed that one of his daughters wants to succeed him as the emir of Kano.

The Cable reports that Sanusi made the disclosure in an interview with Financial Times at his Kano residence. “My daughter wants to be the next emir of Kano, and she’s disappointed I’ve not yet appointed a woman to the Kano emirate council,” Sanusi was reported to have said.

The monarch however did not disclose the identity of the particular daughter who wants to succeed him. When asked if his daughter could be the emir, he noted that perhaps his granddaughter or great-granddaughter could take the position.

“It’s got to be incremental, without necessarily turning the society on its head…That is the greatest challenge for us. How are you a custodian of a legacy, of a history, of a culture? And how do you also serve as a guide as that culture navigates its way in a modern world?” he asked.

The Emir also insisted that the $20 billion allegations of fraud he made before he was suspended as the governor of the apex bank remains unaccounted for and is never going to be found in one place.
