The new Emir of Kano, Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, on Monday pledged to carry everybody along in the affairs of the ancient northern city.
He also commiserated with the family of his predecessor, late Alhaji (Dr) Ado Abdullahi Bayero, who died on Friday, promising to continue with his legacies.
The new Emir made this known in a chat with journalists shortly before the presentation of letter of appointment to him by Governor Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso at Government House, Kano.
Sanusi called on people of Kano to espouse peace and harmony in order to move the state forward.
“I urge the people of Kano to always have the fear of God in all their undertakings so that peace and harmony would continue to reign in the state”, he said.
He also called for unity amongst the Emirate Council and the people of Kano, stressing that he has no problem with his co-contenders that lost out in the race to the traditional tool as according to him, “there is always a winner and a loser”.
During the new Emir’s first public outing at the Government House, members of the Emirate Council, Districts Heads, including sons of the late Ado Bayero, came to pay him traditional homage and pledge allegiance.
In his speech, Governor Kwankwaso thanked the people of the state for their understanding and cooperation in the selection of the new Emir
