Breaking News: The New Emir Of Kano Emerges

Sanusi Lamido, son of Alhaji Ado Bayero, the deceased Emir of Kano and former CBN governor has been chosen to become the next Emir, according to a twitter account purportedly owned by former Central Bank of Nigeria Governor, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.

According to the tweet, the formal announcement will be made later in the day.

Although nothing can be substantiated until a formal announcement is made, earlier reports may lay credence to the announcement made on twitter.

The kingmakers who took the name of the shortlisted candidates to Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso; the Makaman Kano, Sarki Ibrahim, the Sarki Bai, Alhaji Adnana, the Sarki Dawaki Mai Tuta, Alhaji Bello Abubakar, and  the Madakin Kano Yusuf NaBuhari, were said to have recommended the son of the late Emir, who also doubles as the Chiroman Kano, to succeed his late father, stressing that the choice remains a stabilising factor for now.

The kingmakers were said to have told Kwankwaso that their nominee remained  the only choice to assuage the restive populace as the governor’s quarrel with the late Emir depressed him.

“We carefully assessed the situation and believe that the only way to avoid crisis is to honour the late Emir with appointment of his successor,” they were said to have told Kwankwaso.

An official announcement will be made later in the day to confirm whoever emerges as emir.
