A former Head of State, who is also a national leader of the All Progressives Party, Maj-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd) on Monday wrote the new Emir of Kano, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, asking the monarch to support the Federal Government’s war against terrorism in the country.
Buhari, in a congratulatory letter he personally signed and a copy of which was made available to newsmen in Kaduna, urged the new emir to bring to bear his wealth of experience in assisting the economic revival of the state and the country as a whole.
The former military leader, who was also a presidential candidate of the defunct Congress of Progressive Change in the 2011 presidential election, reminded the former CBN boss to fear God and to treat the people of Kano with justice and fairness, saying his choice as the emir was purely an act of God.
Buhari said, “You should cultivate all and exclude none. After attending the burial of the late emir, Alhaji Ado Bayero, I am renewing my condolences to the new emir, Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Sanusi and the people of Kano and the country on the death of Alhaji Ado Bayero.
“I am forwarding my congratulations to you for assuming the office of emir of this historic land, a position once occupied by great historical figures such as Muhammadu Rumfa, Ibrahim Dabo, Abdullahi Bayero and Muhammadu Sanusi. I hope you will be a worthy successor to those great men.”
