While presenting appointment letters to the new Emirs, Ganduje said the Bayero brothers have indeed inherited the good work of their late father.
“This is the first time in Nigeria or anywhere in Africa where two brothers are receiving appointment letters as first-class Emirs in the same state. They have indeed inherited the good work of their late father, Alhaji Ado Bayero, who served as Emir for 53 years.”
In reaction to Ganduje’s comment, the new Emir of Kano promised to be respectful, loyal and obedient to constituted authority
“We trust in God’s judgment, we believe everything has its destiny and time and today it has come to pass.
“I recall my late father instructed us to embrace patience, loyalty to constituted authorities and be dependent on Allah for everything.
“He also told us to be just and fair to people so that God will be just and fair to us in the hereafter.
“On this historic day, I will say these wishes of our late father have come to materialise.”
