The recently dethroned Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, may have lost his title after being deposed and exiled by the state government, but he is still receiving support and recognition
The Kaduna state government on Wednesday, March 11, honoured the former traditional ruler with another appointment. The dethroned monarch was announced as the chancellor of the Kaduna State University (KASU) by the state government.

Sanusi is taking over from Tagwai Sambo, the Chief of Moro’a, the pioneer chancellor, who was appointed back in 2005.
The statement confirming Sanusi's new appointment reads in part: “On behalf of the government and people of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufai is delighted to appoint His Highness, Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Chancellor of the Kaduna State University. In public life, His Highness has demonstrated a strong commitment to education.
“The Kaduna State Government has no doubt that as Chancellor, His Highness Muhammadu Sanusi, would provide symbolic and substantive leadership in raising the profile of KASU as an emerging centre of learning on the national and global level.
“This appointment of the new chancellor comes at an exciting moment for KASU which is transiting to a multicampus structure with presence across the state.
“Malam Nasir El-Rufai welcomes with gratitude the consent of His Highness Muhammadu Sanusi to serve as Chancellor of KASU and as Vice-Chairman of the board of KADIPA. The Kaduna State Government is grateful that HH Muhammadu Sanusi II continues to support and assist the realisation of the governance objectives of the Kaduna State Government.”
