His royal Highness, Emir Sanusi Lamido is known by his religious title as Khalifa, He is the spiritual leader of the Tijanniyah Sufi order in Nigeria. He is a member of the Dabo dynasty and was the former emir of the ancient city-state of Kano. He was born in Kano in 1961 into the royal family as the grandson of Muhammadu Sanusi I.

He succeeded his great-uncle Ado Bayero to the throne on 8 June 2014, and spent most of his reign advocating for cultural reform in Northern Nigeria, until his dethronement on 9 March 2020 by the state government.

Just recently, the gentle man and his entourage travels to Senegal ahead of eid maulud which will hold tomorrow.

Sanusi will be addressing millions of people who are present to celebrate the birth of the holy prophet Muhammad

I want to use this medium to wish him success in his future endeavors.
