I was in Bichi, Kano State today, to witness the formal coronation of the Emir, His Highness Nasiru Ado Bayero.
I described his coronation less than 24 hours after he gave out his daughter, Zahra in marriage, as an uncommon grace and mercy from Almighty Allah.
The events of yesterday and today are clear indications of God’s grace and mercy upon the newly installed Emir.
I wish His Highness a fruitful and peaceful reign on the throne of his forebears. I pray that his tenure ushers in the most peaceful and productive era in the history of Bichi in particular and Kano State as a whole.
His late father lived building bridges across Nigeria and it is my prayer that he continues in that same spirit of fostering lasting unity and peace among Nigerians no matter their political or religious persuasions.
