June 9, 2014 – PDP Confused: Party Congratulates Ado Bayero’s First Son Sanusi Lamido As New Kano Emir
On Sunday, Peoples Democratic Party of Nigeria wrote a congratulatory letter to the son of late Ado Bayero, Emir of Kano, Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Ado Bayero.
The statement signed by the Party’s PS, Olisa Metuh said it was happy with Bayero as the new Emir of Kano.
Metuh praised the kingmakers for their wise decision in choosing Alhaji Ado Bayero, the heir-apparent to the throne, adding that: “In so doing, the kingmakers have preserved the sanctity of the throne and the confidence reposed in the revered traditional institution.”
“Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Ado Bayero is a rare breed, a man of exceptional wisdom and humility. We have a new Emir who, like his father, remains a detribalised Nigerian with an unshaken belief in the unity and peaceful coexistence of our people as a nation.
“We have no doubt whatsoever that the new Emir will live up to his billing by building on the solid foundation and legacies left by his father to further the greatness of the Emirate where the welfare and prosperity of all are guaranteed.”
The ruling party commended the other sons of the late Emir for supporting their elder brother. “Others who nursed the ambition of becoming emir to learn from the nobility and understand that positions of authority are bestowed only by God and not something to be grabbed through political scheming or by force.”
After receving PDP congratulatory message, Kano state Governor Kwakwanso quickly took to Twitter to announce the appointment of suspended CBN Governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as the new Emir of Kano.
PDP secretary in turn said the former congratulatory message was issued in error. Metuh said his aide, Richard Ihediwa issued the statement without his permission.
The installation of Mallam Sanusi as the new Emir of Kano has sent wave of tension to Aso Rock and many Jonathan supporters are shaking, because they are aware of the intelligence and power of the new Northern majesty. The man that was removed three months ago has just been install into the life long powerful office in the North. #lobatan
