Former Military Head of State and Chieftain of the All Progressive Party (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari yesterday congratulated the new Emir of Kano, Alh. Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as he tasked him to fear Allah in his leadership.
In a personal letter sent to the new Emir General Buhari further urged the new Emir to apply his wealth of experience to revive the economic growth of the State and the country.
The 2011 presidential aspirant also reminded the Emir that he was chosen by Allah and therefore, he should fear God and treat all the people of Kano as those under his care and supervision.
“I am forwarding my congratulations to you for assuming the office of emir of this historic land, a position once occupied by great historical figures such as Muhammadu Rumfa, Ibrahim Dabo, Abdullahi Bayero and Muhammadu Sanusi. I hope you will be worthy successor to those great men.
“After attending the burial of the late emir, Alhaji Ado Bayero, I am renewing my condolences to the new emir, Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Sanusi and the people of Kano and the country on the death of Alhaji Ado Bayero,” he said.
