Former Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido is scheduled to start a fellowship programme at the African Studies Centre of Oxford University.
Sanusi will be enrolling there as a Visiting Fellow (Academic Visitor) at the Centre for the 2020-2021 academic year.
According to the Centre, Sanusi intends to use the fellowship to write a book around the theme: ‘Central Bank Response to Global Financial Crisis: A Case Study of the Central Bank of Nigeria 2009-2013.’
This will be based on his experience as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, and as a banker and public intellectual. Sanusi served as the Governor of the CBN from 2009 to 2014.
Muhammadu Sanusi II was the 14th Emir of Kano from the Fulani Sullubawa clan. He ascended the throne on 8 June 2014, following the death of his grand uncle Ado Bayero. He was dethroned on 9 March 2020 by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje. Prior to his accession, Sanusi was an economist and banker.
