The Kano state governor-elect, Abba Kabir Yusuf, better known as Abba Gida-Gida, has invited the deposed Emir of Kano and former Governor of the central bank; Muhammadu Sanusi II, to his inauguration.
In the invitation letter personally signed by Yusuf, which was dated May 26 ,but sighted by Daily Trust on Friday, the governor-elect said the presence of Sanusi would not “only significantly add colour to this important event, but also serve as a major boost and support to us”.
“As you are aware that the 2023 election into the Office of the Governor was conducted in Karo State on 18th March 2023, to which by the Grace of Almighty Allah SWT I emerged as the winner and subsequently issued with certificate of return by INEC. It is, therefore my great pleasure to invite you to my swearing-in ceremony along with my Deputy, Comrade Amin Abdussalam Gwarzo.
“It is my belief that your presence will not only significantly add colour to this important event, but also serve as a major boost and support to us, as we embark on a journey that aims at restoring the lost glory and reputation of our dear State, by returning it on to the path of progress and development in all fields of human endeavour, In sha Allah,” the letter read in part.
Sanusi was deposed by the outgoing governor, Ganduje in 2020 after a long political misunderstanding
