Immediate past Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, will from October this year start a fellowship programme at the prestigious Oxford University in the United Kingdom.

The Management Committee of the African Studies Centre, University of Oxford, recently approved Sanusi’s request for a Visiting Fellowship (Academic Visitor) at the Centre for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Oxford University’s African Studies Centre is one of the world’s leading Centres of African Studies. The Centre has trained graduate students who are now holding important positions in different spheres of social, economic and political life in Africa and the rest of the world. With strengths in the Social Sciences and the Humanities, the Centre enjoys a reputation for high quality, relevant research that plays a leading role in academic debates as well as public policy.

The Centre notes that Sanusi, who is also a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN),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.’

According to statement, this will be based on his experience as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, and as a banker and public intellectual. (Daily Independent)
