The Aftermath evacuation of dethroned Sanusi 200 million naira library is a must to see.
As the news of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi’s dethronement as Emir of Kano by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje still become a topic for discussion, his collection of over 40,000 books which worth 200 million naira still sound as a joke.
Sanusi principal private secretary, Mujtaba Abba, talked about how the Emir of Kano was greatly concerned about his books.
He wrote:”“His Highness’ greatest concern was the fate of his books, so my sister and I stayed behind to ensure that we evacuated all the books. It took us sleepless nights to accomplish the task in two days.
“I made most of the transactions for the purchase of the books, and I can tell you, in conservative estimate, they’re worth over N200m.”
Abba further revealed that Sanusi took only one horse out of his equestrian treasure and left the remaining to his successor.
He added; “Among his over 40 beautiful horses and over 100 choice saddles, he picked one each and left the remaining to his successor.”
Sanusi was really a book lover………
