Hausa and Fulani: How Top 3 Nigeria’s traditional rulers are selected

Hausa and Fulani

The Hausa and Fulani succession process is quite transparent when compared to other ethnic groups in Nigeria. The succession process is anchored by Kingmakers in conjunction with the State government. A list is then drawn up of suitable individuals. The best among them is selected.

This was exactly the process that led to the emergence of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as the Emir of Kano on 8th June, 2014. Even before he became the emir, he already knew he would mount the throne. Perhaps other cultural groups in Nigeria should adopt this idea. There was little or no controversy in the process. Even the religious rites were largely based on the Islamic religion.
