He added that after Lamido Sanusi left Kano he became the Khalifa Tijjaniya Nigeria and World President Tabital Pulaku International (Hoorejo Fulbe Duniyaru). He was also made the Chancellor of Kaduna and Ekiti States Universities stressing that all these are not unconnected to his worth and intellectual prowess.
