Emir Muhammad Sanusi II was born 31 July 1961, serving since 8 June 2014. He was crowned as Emir of Kano after the death of his grand uncle Emir Ado Bayero (who died on 6 June 2014). Emir Muhammad Sanusi II was a successful banker and was a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
Emir Muhammad Sanusi II is the grandson of Muhammad Sunusi (The 11th Fulani Emir of Kano). He was a career banker and ranking Fulani nobleman, and also serves as a respected Islamic Scholar. The global financial intelligence magazine, The Banker, published by the Financial Times, conferred on Sanusi two awards, the global award for Central Bank Governor of the Year, as well as for Central Bank Governor of the Year for Africa.
The TIME magazine also listed Emir Muhammad Sanusi II in its TIMES 100 list of Most Influential People of 2011. In 2013, Sanusi was also awarded a Special GIFA award at the third Global Islamic Finance Awards held in Dubai, for his advocacy role in promoting Islamic banking and finance in Nigeria during his stint as Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.

Please don't use our Emir to perfect your errors or illegalities. The leadership and outgone Chief Scout of the Scout Association of Nigeria has faulted the selection of Emir Sanusi as the Chief Scout of Nigeria because those behind the selection were trying to cover their evil deeds which I know our Emir will not want to be part of.

Kano State Scout Council is part of the Scout Association of Nigeria and we are not aware of the selection prior to the announcement or illegal AGM where the announcement was made. We only got to know via a whatapps group that our Emir will be named as the Chief Scout of Nigeria. We approached the palace to notify the Emir about the fake AGM in Lagos and gave him the reasons why he should not be part of the fraud, at that point our Emir called back his representative to the venue of the failed AGM. How can you appoint the Emir Kano without informing the Kano State Scout Council? Happening at an illegal venue which was not attended by Kano State Scout Council. Please don't mess up with our Emir, he is a man we hold in high esteem and you should not role him in the mud.

These power drunk group are mostly located in the South West of Nigeria, led by dictator Olusoga Sofolahan, a fraudulent and power hungry scouter who was denied opportunity to contest an election at the World Scout level due to his low skill in scouting, inability to manage his subjects and mismanagement of scouting fund meant for GSAT via WOSM.

The Lagos failed AGM breached section ARTICLE VI 3. (a) of the approved WOSM Constitution of the Scout Association of Nigeria. "RULES OF THE COUNCIL The Council shall meet at least once a year. Extraordinary meetings may be called by the Chairman or by the National Secretary at the request in writing of any fifty members of the Council." By this, the AGM must be called by the CS and HNS.

The Scout Association of Nigeria is a movement protected by the government of Nigeria and has not endorsed Emir Sanusi as the Chief Scout of Nigeria in any of its meetings, The Association has an Acting Chief Scout in person of Father Mathias Opara from Owerri, who later appointed Acting Chief Commissioner in person of Chief Kusimo Adewuyi from Ogun State after Mr. Olusoga Sofolahan has been suspended for gross misconduct and financial issues at the AGM. Other officer elected were Dr Ibe Sunday from Anambra as the Honorary National Secretary, Mrs Nyamehj Bridget as the Honorary National Treasurer and Mr Zubairu Sambo Faruq as the auditor of TSAN.

Our Constitution provides that only the Chief Scout (chairman) and Honorary National Secretary can convene the Association AGM, the duo did and about 27 State Councils met in Abuja where a lot of decisions were made. In any meeting of delegates, the quorum is a majority of the number of delegates who have been registered as attending. The AGM in Abuja was well attended, formed quorum and was chaired by Deputy Chief Scout after the Chief Scout gave his valedictory speech.

Let me borrow from the speech of Eng. Rufai Muhammed, the outgoing CS of TSAN "Decisions of the Council are stage managed within the dictate of the Chief Commissioner. The best practices in the whole world make the decisions of Council supreme and are expected to be carried out and report back. The way our operators have abandoned decisions of Council through personal interpretations has turned the Council to a rubber stamp. Here also, anyone that kick against jettisoning of the decisions of Council is termed an opposition and is met with usual threats and condemnation."

Lastly, every decision made in the Lagos Failed AGM is null and void because Lagos Scout Council organized an Annual General meeting without Chief Scout, Deputy Chief Scout or Honorary National Secretary or representatives from 31 states of the nation, what type of AGM is that?

I know our Emir has refuted this by force selection by withdrawing his representative from the event in Lagos and will never give you any response of acceptance because he is a man of honour.

Take your time to answer these 5 questions.

1. Who has right to call the Annual General Meeting?
2. Who presided over your failed Lagos AGM?
3. Can you appoint Emir of Kano as CS without notice of Kano Scout Council?
4. Is Chief Scout position elective or appointed?
5. Can 6 states decide for the whole nation?

The authentic AGM of the association was done on Saturday 8th July 2017 and it was attended by about 27 states and also our National Headquarter Commissioner for Scout in Diaspora in person of Dr. Philip Soneye flied down to Abuja from the USA to monitor and guide.

Yours In Scouting
