‘Sanusi’ll develop Kano’

Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi has expressed happiness on the emergence of former Central Bank Governor (CBN) Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as the Emir of Kano.

He said Sanusi’s reign would bring unprecedented development to the ancient city.

In a statement by his media aide, Dr. Festus Adedayo, Ajimobi described Sanusi as “a seasoned technocrat, accomplished administrator and an Islamic scholar, who will bring his wealth of experience from the corporate world and sound Islamic knowledge to bear in the running of the emirate”.

He hailed Kano State Governor Rabiu Kwakwanso for acceding to the request of the kingmakers on the choice of Sanusi.

Ajimobi condemned the violence that followed the announcement of Sanusi as the Emir, urging those behind it to sheath their swords. He urged security agencies to prevent a breakdown of law and order in Kano.

The governor described the late Emir, Alhaji Ado Bayero, as “an apostle of peace, who left his indelible footprints on the sands of time”.

Ajimobi acknowledged the late Bayero’s contributions to Kano’s growth and prayed for the repose of his soul.
