A week after the emergence of the new Emir, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, the aggrieved children of the late Emir, Alhaji Ado Bayero, has finally paid homage to the new Emir during the weekend.
The appointment of the former CNB governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi resulted in anger and protest among the youths who felt the appointment was politicized, and the first son of Bayero who believed that the odds favoured him and got disappointed in succeeding his later father.
The armed security men placed the situation under control and siege the palace for a couple of days while the new Emir was moved to the State Government House.
During the protest and days Sanusi spent in the government house, the late children of Bayero stayed away, they were also absent on the day the new emir returned to the palace despite elders intervention who later made excuse on their behalf that they were still mourning their father.
The home paid on Sunday by the aggrieved children is an indication that the dispute is finally coming to an end.
Though the tradition says the emir does not wait to receive visitors, but tradition was waved on Sunday to receive the children of the late Emir, possibly to bridge the gap of indifference.
The children of the late Emir who visited Sanusi include Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, District Head of Dala; Alhaji Nasiru Ado Bayero, District Head of Nasarawa, Alhaji Mahmud Ado Bayero, District Head of Fagge, Alhaji Ibrahim Ado Bayero, District Head of Sumaila and Alhaji Aliyu Ado Bayero, District Head of Kunchi.
During the visit last Saturday, our correspondent learned that the Galadiman Kano, Alhaji Tijjani Hashim, was also at the palace to pay homage to the emir.
Alhaji Sanusi Ado Bayero and Ciroma of Kano initially thought to be the main contender was not there with his siblings but palace sources said he was outside the state for medical treatment.
Speaking with newsmen, Alhaji Sanusi Bayero urged the people of Kano to embrace peace.
He said “We are very much grateful with the outpouring, the concerns that the public has shown us over the demised of the Emir. We are very grateful for their sympathies and prayers that his soul may rest in peace.
“Also we want to express our gratitude for all the show of support after his death and the love they have shown to all of us his descendants. We pray that Allah will continue to support our people, keep the peace in our community and help us to forge ahead in this critical time we are going through. We thank you all and wish them peace,” he said.
Meanwhile a delegation of Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, was at the palace yesterday to pay homage to the new emir.
