Drama as Sanusi’s daughter represents him... first time a lady will represent an Emir

This action by Emir Sanusi has generated some ripples. Shahida Sanusi, daughter of Muhammad Sanusi II, Emir of Kano, represented him at the inaugural Chibok Girls’ lecture held by the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) group on Friday.

Shahida, who delivered Sanusi’s speech at the event in Abuja, said her representing the emir would be the first time a non-title holder or woman would do so in the north.

Earlier, the Emir, in a video message to the group, said he chose his daughter to represent him at the event because of her passion for gender issues.

He said his daughter once slapped a boy for disrespecting her.

He also lampooned those who are opposed to his views, saying they would have to contend with his children who are more progressive and radical.

Hmmm...no be small radical.
