President Muhammadu Buhari hosted on Monday broke his fast with traditional rulers, including Muhammadu Sanusi, emir of Kano.
The traditional leaders who joined the president in the Ramadan breakfast were Sa’ad Abubakar, sultan of Sokoto; Adeyeye Ogunwusi.
Others were Yahaya Abubakar, the Etsu Nupe, James Ayatse, the Tor Tiv, and other prominent rulers from the south south and south-east regions of the country.
Government officials, including Abba Kyarit, chief of staff to the president, as well as some presidential aides were among those at the event.
This is the first time that Sanusi would be seen publicly with the president since Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano, broke the emirate into five.
The move was believed to be targetted at the monarch who didn’t support his reelection.
