Tijjaniyya sheikhs say Sanusi’s emergence as leader ‘a blessing’

Leaders of the Tijjaniyya Islamic sect have described the former Emir of Kano, Mohammadu Sanusi II’s emergence as Tijjaniya leader a blessing to Nigeria.

The clerics who disclosed this when they paid an allegiance visit to his Kaduna home also said  all their followers in Nigeria and  Africa are proud of him.

The representative of the leader of Tijjaniyya Worldwide,  Sheikh Abdul-Ahad  Nyass who paid glowing tribute to the former emir said it was a  unanimous decision to have the former emir as the leader in Nigeria.

He added that the leader of the Tijjaniyya worldwide Sheikh Mahi Nyass was proud of the former emir’s achievements both in public life and as a monarch.

He described the large gathering of their followers who had converged on Kaduna in honor of Sanusi, as a testimony of how the former emir was still accepted and cherished by their adherent who have absolute confidence in his leadership qualities.

Also, Sheikh Mukhtar Adhama expressed the belief that Sanusi as leader of the Tijjaniyya Islamic sect would encourage learning and deep scholarship amongst their followers.

In his remarks, former emir Sanusi recalled that long before he ascended the throne in Kano, he had visited great Tijjaniyya sheiks in Kaulaha, Senegal who had prayed and rightly predicted he would become emir of Kano.

He recalled that even the present leadership of the Tijjaniyya bestowed on him, 80% of those who endorsed him were Sheikhs not known to him.

He further prayed for peace and tranquility in Nigeria and admonished citizens to be patient and law-abiding by the authorities.

He said even though things might not be rosy, it’s a matter of time as normalcy may return as the year progresses.
