Dethroned Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, has been offered a fellowship programme at the Oxford University in the United Kingdom.
This followed the approval granted by the Management Committee of the African Studies Centre, University of Oxford.
Sanusi, who is also a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), had requested for a Visiting Fellowship (Academic Visitor) at the Centre for the 2020-2021 academic year.
The programme will commence from October this year.
Oxford University’s African Studies Centre is one of the world’s leading Centres of African Studies.
The Centre disclosed that Sanusi intends to use the period of his affiliation to write a book around the theme: ‘Central Bank Response to Global Financial Crisis: A Case Study of the Central Bank of Nigeria 2009-2013.’
This will be based on his experience as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and as a banker and public intellectual.
