The newly installed Emir of Kano, His Highness, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, the 15th Emir of Kano, has been described as a leader, whose elevation to the exalted position of an Emir, would bring about peace and development in Kano in particular and Nigeria as a whole.
Minister, Niger Delta Affairs Ministry, Senator Godswill Akpabio stated this while speaking with newsmen at the Sanni Abacha Stadium in Kano, shortly after the installation and presentation of staff of office to the new Emir by the Kano State Governor, Alhaji Umar Ganduje.
A release signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Jackson Udom, quoted the former Senate Minority Leader as saying, “the newly installed Emir is a chip off the old block and I know he will do his best to maintain the peace his late father stood and lived for. His installation today, is a watershed in the history of the Emirate and Kano State.”
” We know the late Bayero, who was the father of the newly installed Emir, lived for his people and built bridges across the country. I also expect the newly installed Emir, to continue in that way, consolidate on his father’s achievements and break new grounds for the people of Kano and the nation generally”, he said.
He prayed God to give the new Emir, long life in good health on the throne of his forebears, saying” It is my prayer that the new Emir will bring to bear, in this new responsibility, his experiences garnered over the years in his public and private lives, in the handling of the affairs of the emirate and the state. God will grant him good health and long life on the throne of his fathers.”
