His nomination takes effect one year after he was dethroned by Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano state.

The sect has not appointed any leader since the death of Sheikh Khalifa Isyaku Rabiu back in 2018.

It was gathered that Sanusi’s late grandfather, the Emir of Kano Muhammad Sanusi I, was a pacesetter of Tijjaniyah, a Sufi order.
