Presenting a letter of appointment to the new Emir

Oct 30 2014

Kano State Governor, Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, announced the selection of Sanusi as the new Emir on Sunday following the submission of the list of nominated candidates for the post to him by the kingmakers the previous day.

The turbaning ceremony took place amid tight security at the Africa House, Government House, Kano, in the presence of the kingmakers and Sanusi’s major rival, Alhaji Lamido Sanusi Ado Bayero, who is the eldest son of the late Emir, Alhaji Ado Bayero.

Lamido and other sons of the late Emir have since paid homage to the new monarch.

Presenting a letter of appointment to the new Emir, the Governor described his appointment as an act of God.

“The selection procedure is not like that of an election in our today political arrangement where you put ballot boxes at the polling units,” the Governor noted.

He debunked the rumour that the ex CBN Governor’s name was not on the list of those forwarded to him for final approval by the kingmakers.

“The name of our new Emir was among the list. In fact he is the first on the list,” Kwankwaso revealed.

In his remarks, Sanusi said the unrest sparked by his announcement as the new Emir on Sunday was not caused by any of his relatives, referring to the sons of late Emir Ado Bayero.

Meanwhile, Chairman of the Northern States Governors’ Forum (NSGF) and Governor of Niger State, Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu, has congratulated Sanusi on his selection as the new Emir of Kano.

In a statement in Minna on Monday, Aliyu advised the new Emir on the need to deploy his wealth of experience to carry everybody along and to follow the footprints of his forefathers by being non partisan and without any form of religious biasness.

The statement signed by Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to the Governor, Israel Ebije, challenged the new Emir to emulate the examples of his predecessor, late Ado Bayero, who had endeared himself to all Nigerians in the emirate regardless of their ethno religious background.

Ascension of the new Emir marks a beginning of a new era, Aliyu said, adding that “Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, the (14th Fulani dynasty), is indeed stepping into a shoe he must learn how to properly and speedily adapt to”.

Former President, Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, also described as the new Emir of Kano as a lesson to the holders of transient power.

The legal icon spoke in a statement in Ibadan on Monday in which he said “the announcement of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi (SLS), the erstwhile Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, by the Kano State Government, as the new Emir of Kano after the demise of the great Alhaji Ado Bayero, confirms the axiom that nobody can prevent the sun from rising.

“The fact that this is coming immediately after tenure of office of SLS as governor of CBN, officially, should be a lesson to the ephemeral holders of transient power.

“If the power to choose had resided somewhere here else we are sure someone else would have been preferred to this ebullient personality.

“We must, however, hasten to admonish the new Emir to join other well meaning Nigerians in the current fight against the Boko Haram insurgents who are bent on wrecking our collective peace.

“He must cast aside bitter recriminations and destructive anger against his persecutors. His new position must be used to achieve an unprecedented level of peace in the ancient city of Kano and Nigeria.

“We congratulate the Emir and pray that the Almighty should grant him a peaceful reign and long life,” Akeredolu added.

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar similarly advised the new Emir to build on the enviable and positive legacies of the late Titleist AP1 714 Irons Emir Ado Bayero.

In a statement congratulating Sanusi, Atiku noted that the new Emir had worked strenuously to fulfil a life time ambition, and that he should use his position to unite all the ruling houses of Kano State and its people behind his appointment.

According to Atiku, leadership is a test from God, and therefore urged Sanusi to use his position to do justice to all manner of people in his domain.

The new Emir reportedly narrowly escaped being arrested by the security agents at his personal residence hours after he was appointed to the coveted throne.

A source who declined to be named said the Kano State Government hurriedly sneaked Sanusi out of his personal residence after receiving intelligence that the Federal Government was plotting to TaylorMade SLDR Driverarrest him to stop him from being turbaned.

“It is true his royal highness did not sleep in his house after information came that there are moves to arrest him for reasons we don’t know,” the source said.

These were the same issues that sparked a 17 day strike eight months ago that left 12 dead.

The government claims it making progress on the agricultural front. After last year strike, it banned the importation of potatoes for two years, reiterated a promise to subsidize coffee farmers and raised the 2014 agriculture budget to historically high levels, among other measures.

know that the countryside and its inhabitants here face numerous difficulties, Santos said during a campaign event on Monday in Bogot where he laid out his vision for the next four years. difficulties are not new, but come from decades, I would even say from centuries, of state neglect. said his administration was building a national plan to make sure farmers are part of Colombia economic resurgence.

Cuba, where the FARC and government negotiators are trying to hammer out a lasting peace agreement, the guerrillas said they support the farmers claims but denied they were infiltrating the protests.

are farming organizations telling the state up to your promises from last year, FARC Commander Ricardo T said in a statement Monday from Havana. story about linking the protests to the guerrillas is a pretext to use violence to suppress the protests. Tunja, Benavides said farmers simply want to make a living at what they do. He said banks are still confiscating land and local onion farmers are being undercut by cheap imports.
