1min read

Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso has said after receiving the Kano Emirate’s kingmakers at the Government House on Saturday that a new emir would be announced tomorrow.

The kingmakers who visited the governor are the Madakin Kano, Yusuf Chigari; Sarkin Dawaki, Bello Abubakar; Makaman Kano, Abdullahi Ibrahim and Sarkin Bai, Mukhtar Adnan.

As is the custom, the kingmakers submitted a list containing four names to Kwankwaso who is to give final approval.

It is widely speculated that the names of the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi; the eldest son of the late emir, Ciroma Lamido Ado Bayero who is already the district head of Gwale local government area of Kano; the district head of Dala local government area of the state, Aminu Ado Bayero, and Nasiru Ado Bayero, make up the list.

Some palace watchers believe that Sanusi might be the chosen one due to his political affiliation with the All Progressive Congress, APC, which is the ruling party in the state.

The new emir would succeed the late Ado Bayero who died on Friday after ruling for 50 years.
