The invitation of Malam Muhammad Sanusi II, the estranged Emir of Kano, to the inauguration ceremony of the Kano state governor-elect Abba Yusuf has been confirmed.
As reported by Punch, the governor-elect formerly invited him to the historic event slated for Monday, May 29.
Sanusi's invitation is on the heels of speculations that he might be reinstated as the one true monarch of Kano state, thereby removing the controversially installed Emir, Aminu Ado Bayero.

Tinubu's Presidency: Sanusi to Return As CBN Governor, Fresh Permutation Emerges
In another development, there are strong indications that Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, the dethroned Emir of Kano state, may return as governor of Nigeria's apex bank, CBN.
Sanusi served as the governor of the CBN between 2009 and 2014, where he displayed strong discipline and independent leadership to sanitize the banking and financial system.
During his reign as CBN governor, the naira was able to retain a stabilised position of N155 to $1 for four years.
