Politics Shema, Emirate Councils Mourn Late Emir of Kano



Governors, Emirate Councils and other Nigerians have joined in mourning, Alhaji Ado Bayero, the 13th Emir of Kano, who died in #Kano on Friday at the age of 84.

Gov. Ibrahim Shema of Katsina described the late Bayero’s death as a tragic loss to the country.

Shema, in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Press Affairs, Malam Lawal Matazu, said Bayero died when his wisdom was needed to achieve peace and stability in the country.

He condoled with the family, the Sultan of Sokoto, Northern Emirs and the Federal Government, and prayed God to give them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

Similarly, the Gwandu Emirate Council in Kebbi has described Bayero’s death as a great loss to national unity and traditional institutions.

The Wazirin Gwandu, Alhaji Abdullahi Umar, made this known in an interview with NAN at the Abdullahi Fodio Palace in Birnin Kebbi on Friday.

Umar said, ``the Emir of Gwandu, Alhaji Muhammad Bashar, and the state council of emirs condole with the nation and people of Kano State over the irreparable loss.

``The deceased was an amiable, peace loving, caring leader who championed the cause of his people, the traditional institution and a bridge builder who believed in the unity of the nation.

``He was easy going traditional ruler who de-emphasised materialism and encouraged the worship of God through numerous Islamic religious engagements that he spearheaded in his life time,’’ Umar said.

He called on the next emir to emulate the attributes of the late Bayero.
