SANUSI Lamido Sanusi, deposed emir of Kano, is to go on a fellowship programme at the prestigious Oxford University in the United Kingdom, UK, from October.

The Oxford University’s management committee of the African Studies Centre,  approved Sanusi’s request for a visiting fellowship (Academic Visitor) at the Centre for the 2020/2021 academic year.

The centre in Oxford is one of the world’s leading centres of African studies and  has trained graduate students who are  holding important positions in various spheres of social, economic and political lives in Africa and other parts of the world.

Sanusi during his stay in Oxford will write a book on the theme: “Central Bank Response to Global Financial Crisis: A Case Study of the Central Bank of Nigeria 2009-2013” based on his experience as the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, between 2009 and 2014, and a banker and public intellectual.

He was named the Central Bank Governor of the Year by The African Banker magazine in 2010 because of his reforms and leading a radical anti-corruption campaign in the sector, the first of its kind during the financial crisis.

Realnews reports that Sanusi, born July 31, 1961, was the 14th emir of Kano from the Fulani Sullubawa clan. He ascended the throne on  June 8, 2014, following the death of his grand uncle Ado Bayero. He was dethroned on March 9, by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State.
