From Ado Abubakar Musa, Jos
The Jasawa Community Development Association (JCDA), in Jos, yesterday said that the death of the late emir of Kano Dr. Alhaji Ado Abdullahi Bayero, was a great loss to the entire people of Kano state and Nigeria at large, describing him as a custodian of peace and moral values.
The condolence was contained in a statement, issued by the association and signed by its national president, Alhaji Shehu Ibrahim Masalla, yesterday in Jos.
The issued release stated that the death of the Bayero was “a great vacuum that will take longer time to be filled up. He has gone with an ambition of a peaceful united nation that had not been achieved as he wished.”
It added that, “We, on behalf of the entire Jasawa community, commiserate with the government and good people of Kano State, the Kano emirate council in Particular as well as the entire immediate Bayero family in general, may Allah console your hearts and grant you the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
“We further specially commiserate with the new emir Malam Muhammad Sanusi Lamido Sanusi over the death of his predecessor, the Late Ado Bayero; may Allah’s rahama be with him and grant him Jannatul Firdaus,” the statement added.
In furtherance of that, the associationcongratulated the new emir, adding that the choice of Sanusi as the Kano emir came when his service was seriously needed.
“It is our firm belief that your enthronement onto the exalted position of the emir of Kano, will not only serve as the train of continuity from where your predecessor had stopped on the quest for a well enlightened, well educated, prosperous and united people of Kano”, the community enthused.
