Former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Muhammadu Sanusi II, has been appointed as the leader of the Tijjaniya sect in Nigeria.

Sanusi’s appointment was announced in Sokoto State at the ongoing conference of the sect.

His appointment comes a year after he was dethroned by Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano State, as the Emir of Kano.

Sanusi takes over the mantle of the sect from late Sheikh Khalifa Isyaku Rabiu who died in 2018.

It has been reported that Sanusi’s late grandfather, the Emir of Kano Muhammad Sanusi I, was a leader of Tijjaniyah, a Sufi order.

This appointment follows Sanusi’s emergence as the vice-chairman of the Kaduna Investment Promotion Agency (KADIPA).
