“Sanusi Ado Bayero (Chiroman Kano) has been selected as the new Emir of Kano. Announcement to be made later,” the ex-CBN chief tweeted.
The formal announcement will be made later in the day.
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.
