Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi set to wed 17 years old Bride

Sanusi-lamido-sanusi1The Emir of Kano, Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi (Muhammadu Sanusi II), is set to take his fourth wife, next month July 2015. His new bride is the 17-year-old beautiful daughter of the Lamido of Adamawa, Alhaji Muhammadu Barkindo Aliyu Musdafa.

Sanusi, the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, who became the 14th Emir of Kano last June, is a respected Islamic Scholar, and his decision to take a new wife is in line with Islamic injunction, which prescribes a maximum of four wives for those who can treat all of them equally.

Already, Sanusi has three beautiful wives – Sadiya, Maryam and Rakiya.

Like in ancient times when bonds between empires were deepened by marriages among royals and nobles across boundaries, the betrothal of the Adamawa princess to Emir Sanusi II may also be a move to deepen royal bond between Adamawa and Kano. Historically, both emirates have similar origins in the 19th century Usman dan Fodio’s jihad.

The source hinted that all is set for the marriage rites and the invitation card is already in circulation as at the time of this report.The event has been slated to hold inside the Emir’s Palace. Many dignitaries have been penciled to honour the invitation from the highly influential Emir.
