FG to return Sanusi's impounded Passports, Seized Salaries

According to The NATION, The Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi is to have his seized travel passport and withheld salaries returned.
Besides, the Kano Central Prison is to be relocated for better security at the Emir’s palace. It is all as part of last Thursday’s reconciliation with President Goodluck Jonathan.
The Presidency is believed to have decided to have what is known as “total reconciliation with the Emir”.

Although the Presidency is aware of the closeness of the Emir to the leaders of the APC Political Party, the olive branch is meant to ensure his “neutrality” during next year’s elections.
A Government source while speaking, said “After the open meeting last Thursday, the President and the Emir met at the inner recess of the Presidential Villa for about five minutes.
“Some political leaders from Kano, who witnessed the session, were all excited that there is a new 
understanding between the President and the Emir.
“Prior to the meeting, there had been apprehensions on likely hostile crowd against the President in Kano during the 2015 campaign.
“With the rapprochement, the Emir’s travel passport and his withheld salaries and allowances will be paid. These are some of the gains of the meeting”. Continue..
“If the traveling documents are released, the Emir will be able to travel abroad for check up and to meet his international friends who are desirous of investing in the Emirate,” the source said.
The State Security Service (SSS) had in February seized Sanusi’s passports.

The SSS on May 14 prevented the former CBN Governor from boarding a Turkish Airline flight to Saudi Arabia for the lesser Hajj.
Justice Ibrahim Buba of the Federal High Court, Lagos had on April asked the Federal Government, the police and the SSS to release Alhaji Sanusi’s passport unlawfully seized from him in February.
