Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Aminu  Sanusi was on Saturday in Kano conferred with the title of Dan  Majen Kano by  Emir of Kano, His Royal Highness, Alhaji Ado Bayero. Sanusi appeared in chieftaincy regalia in his office today to the charging of workers.

The history of Dan Majen Kano title in the hierarchical traditional titles of the traditional institution of Kano Emirate dates back to the 16th century, exactly in 1509 when the then Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Kisoki appointed the first Dan Maje, that is, Dan Maje Ummaru. This title continued to exist up to the time. Kano fell under the authority of colonialists after its invasion and from that time to date, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi is the 10th Dan Maje of Kano.

 
Dan Maje title is 21st in the hierarchy in the over 60 District Heads and title holders in the Kano Emirate after the Magajin Gari title and followed by of Dan Kadai who is the 22nd in the hierarchy. It is believed that since 1882 Dan Maje title was the 17th title in the order of office precedence, following the Barden Kano title which is the 16th and followed by Dan Makwayo.
