If the former CBN Governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi becomes the next Emir of Kano, things will never remain the same again in the Nigerian political space as those who fought him will have no choice but to…!
Anyway, the race to succeed the late Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, has begun. Already, contenders for the respected throne have begun to emerge. They include Mallam Sanusi Lamido, who holds the traditional title of Dan-majen Kano; his uncle, Sanusi Abbas, who holds the title of Wamban Kano and Sanusi Ado Bayero, the late emir’s first son, who is the District Head of Gwale.
Kingmakers have begun a closed door meeting to pick three names out of the eligible contenders for Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso to pick Bayero’s successor…
Others are the Galadiman Kano, Tijjani Hashim and two other princes, Aminu Bayero and Nasiru Bayero.
Heavy security presence was noticed in major areas within the Kano metropolis as events get underway.
Recalled that the late Alhaji Ado Bayero, who is the longest-serving emir in Kano’s history, passed on in the early hours of Friday after an undisclosed ailment. He ascended the throne in 1963 and ruled for 51 years until his death and was buried in Kano few hours later.
