Meanwhile, the state government said placing Sanusi’s portrait in Coronation Hall depicts the importance of the 14th Emir to the state, Daily Independent report confirmed.
The chief press secretary to the Governor, Sanusi Dawakin-Tofa, stated thus:
“History of the Coronation Hall is synonymous with the 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, because it was built for his presentation of staff of office when he was crowned to succeed the late Ado Bayero in 2014, during the administration of Kwankwaso.
