Sanusi's Grandfather was dethroned as Emir Of Kano over Financial Impropriety, Will SLS follow the same fate? Must Read

Did you know that in May 1962, on the departure of the British colonial administrator and then Governor of Northern Nigeria, Sir Gawain Westray Bell (1909-1995), many people in the North and beyond including Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi, late Emir of Kano and grandfather of the former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, (who now become the Emir of Kano, felt that the Sardauna of Sokoto (1938-1966) and Premier of Northern Nigeria, Sir Ahmadu Bello (1909-1966) might follow the example of Chief Obafemi Awolowo (1909-1987), ppointing the then Ooni of Ife, Oba (Sir) Adesoji Aderemi (1889-1980), as Governor of Western Region, by recommending an emir to be Governor of the North?

Popular Yoruba Leader Killed in Kano; they Ripped his Stomach

Violent crimes is gradually becoming order of the day. A prominent Yoruba leader, Alhaji Ganiyu Akanbi Bello has been found dead at his residence at Race Course general area of Nasarawa GRA in Kano metropolis after he was allegedly murdered by yet to be identified assailants in his sleep.

A strange situation of not seeing Alhaji Bello at his sitting room since dawn till about 11.00am made family his members raise the alarm and the eldest son, Nuru Bello to report to the police.
Armed officers were then sent over to the house by the police, who were said to have broken into his room on arrival and found Alhaji Bello in a pool of his own blood...

Sanusi could be next emir of Kano.

Good or Bad news for Jonathan ?
Things just got tighter for President Goodluck Jonathan: former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi (SLS), is a potential candidate to be the next emir of Kano after the death of Alhaji Ado Bayero.
Kano is considered strategic in the 2015 presidential election ─ in which Jonathan is expected to run ─ because of its voting population.
Even 25% of Kano’s 5.1 million registered voters ─ second only to Lagos’ 6.2 million ─ could make a significant contribution to the overall score of a presidential candidate.
