Emir Sanusi’ll Support my Appointment, Ado Bayero Boasts


The newly appointed Emir of Bichi, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, on Thursday said Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II will surely support his undertakings following his appointment.

Bayero who spoke at a press conference noted that he never accepted his new appointment to spite Sanusi, the erstwhile paramount ruler of Kano.

Furthermore, he noted that he did not lobbied to become the Emir of Bichi and many other post he had held until his new appointment.

He said, ”Sanusi is my brother. He has respect for me and I have respect for him. l am from a royal family. When he was appointed Emir, I was among the first set of people that paid homage to him and l gave him my support and l will continue to support him.

“So, because I am appointed Emir, l don’t think he will not support me to succeed in all my undertakings. l have no grudges against him whatsoever and I don’t think he has any against me, he stressed.”

Speaking on his past antecedent, the new Emir said, “Let me give example with myself. l was appointed Danmajen Kano I 1990 by my late dad; I later became Danburan Kano, then Turakin Kano to Sarkin Tsakar Gida and finally to Wamban Kano it may interest you to know that l have never gone to anybody asking for any of these appointments.

“Again from the time my late dad became emir to the time he died, he saw a lot of changes and he accepted them in good faith. Historically the Police, Prisons, customs, Judges and schools were initially under the emirates, but as time went by, they separated and our forefathers had accept the changes.

“For me, having five Emirs in Kano will not affect its development. lf the Emirs have the concern about development of Kano, they can work together and move the state forward. There is no difference between all of us” he noted.
