The deposed Emir of Kano, Mohammad Lamido Sanusi II, has emerged as the president of Fulani International socio-cultural organisation ‘Tabbital Pulaaku International’ (TPI).
The former Emir’s emergence was announced during TPI’s general assembly meeting with representatives from 16 African countries yesterday, in Abuja.
The representatives unanimously voted in favour of Sunusi, to be the next president of the organisation. The conference had representatives from Ghana, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger, Chad Republic, Liberia, Guinea Conakry, Cameroon, Senegal, Guinea Bissau, Gambia, Sudan, Cote D’Ivoire, as well as residents in Europe, Asia, and the United States of America (USA).
He succeeded the billionaire, El hadji Alpha Amadou Diallo from Guinea, Conakry, who served as President of the TPI for eight years.
Apart from being a former Emir, Sunusi is also the former Governor, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the present leader of the Tijjaniyya Sufi order in Nigeria.
In August, Malam Isah Yuguda, the former governor of Bauchi State, was elected head of Tabital Pulaaku in Nigeria. According to the ex-governor, Tabital Pulaaku has a great role to play in bringing lasting solutions to farmers-herders clashes which have persisted over the years in Nigeria.
