DAILY COURIER – Dethroned Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido, and Kano Governor Abdullahi Ganduje have met for the first time in two years after the tmonarch was dethroned.

Sanusi was dethroned in March 2020 by the Kano government, citing “total disrespect to lawful instructions from the office of the Governor”.

The duo in the now-viral video seen by The Nation, met at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.

Checks by DAILY COURIER showed it was the first time the Governor and dethroned Emir would be seen together since 2020.

In a short clip capturing their meeting, the former Emir and Ganduje could be seen shaking hands at a lounge in the airport.

The clip has since generated mixed reactions on social media.
