Ado Bayero lived for justice, unity, PDP says

Late Emir of Kano, Ado Bayero

“He was the longest serving and unarguably one of the most respected emirs in the history of Kano Emirate.”

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said it has received the news of the passage of the Emir of Kano, Ado Bayero with great shock and intense sadness.

“Indeed, this is a sad day. Our nation and the world have lost an uncommon personality; a great African and a quintessential monarch,” PDP said in a statement by its spokesperson, Olisa Metuh, Friday.

The statement also said Mr. Bayero lived like a legend, a detribalized Nigerian and statesman who sacrificed the greater part of his life for the stability, oneness and development of Nigeria. It said the late Emir personified dignity and finesses.

“Till death, he was the longest serving and unarguably one of the most respected emirs in the history of Kano Emirate. A devout Muslim who, despite his exceptional attainments left us great lessons as a very strong symbol of godliness, tolerance, justice, honesty and service to our dear father land.

“He was an excellent administrator and entrepreneur who played key roles towards the political and economic development of our country while his contributions to national discourse remained pivotal to the sustenance of democracy and good governance in Nigeria.

“We mourn with our National Chairman, Ahmadu Adamu Muazu CON, as he grieves for the loss of his adoptive father, the Emir, who nurtured him and many other prominent Nigerians to greatness. Indeed, we are particularly pained that the Emir left us at a time like this when his wealth of experience, valuable fatherly advice and guidance are needed the most.

“Our hearts also reach out to the Bayero family even as we condole with the Kano Emirate, the good people of Kano state and the entire nation for this very huge loss,” PDP said.
