Sanusi Lamido’s First Wife Is Ado Bayero’s Daughter.. Late Kano Emir Is His In-Law

June 10, 2014 – Sanusi Lamido’s First Wife Is Ado Bayero’s Daughter.. Late Kano Emir Is His In-Law

During the turbaning ceremony of new Emir of Kano yesterday in Kano city, Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso explained that Sanusi’s experience and his connection with late Bayero’s family gave him an edge over other contenders.

“The new emir was appointed on merit. I must clarify that the six contenders to the throne are good friends and it remains a statement of fact (that) only one would emerge ,” the governor added.

Rabiu also urged the new Emir to provide an all inclusive cabinet just as he announced that his administration had provided an estate for the family of the late Ado Bayero at Sharada area of the city.

The governor also announced plans to rehabilitate the century old Kano Emir’s palace to make it comfortable for the new occupant.

In his acceptance speech, Sanusi expressed gratitude to Allah for making him the 57th Emir of Kano and the 14th Fulani emir of Kano Emirate.

He said he enjoyed the best support of members of the ruling House, stressing that there was no animosity between him and other princes and princesses.

The ex-CBN governor said, “I was closer to the late Emir than I was to my late father. My first wife of 20 years is Bayero’s daughter. I grew up under his care and shared bed with Turakin Kano, Nasiru Ado Bayero, for 10 years.”

    The late Ado Bayero was Sanusi’s grand uncle since he was a brother to the deposed Emir, who was Sanusi’s grandpa. In other words,Sanusi and his wife are some cousins. Ba haka ba?

    So this man is Fulani? Why are Hausa people weak in their social settings? Are these Fulanis not foreigners in Hausaland? O ga o!! In Sociology& Anthropology, this called Amensalism (complete inhibition of one population by another).

      Thanks for the enlightenment Fuzzy. I never knew Fulani culture permits blood relations to marry. Anyway, may God give him the wisdom to govern his people.
