Listen to article

Speaker of the House of Representatives,  Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has

described the passing away of the Emir of Kano,  Dr. Ado Bayero, as a

monumental loss to the entire country, saying he received the news of the

passage with great sense of sadness.
In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs,

Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal described the deceased as a strict

disciplinarian who led an exemplary life characterised by honesty,

fairness, generosity and service to God and humanity.

He said the late Emir treasured knowledge and the search for knowledge.

'Under his long and glorious reign,  Kano witnessed unprecedented boom in

all spheres of human endeavour. It's eminent status as a trading point and

centre of commerce in sub Saharan Africa was not only reaffirmed, but

'People of Kano and indeed all Nigerians will miss his advice and

reassuring presence. It is gratifying however that he has left behind

towering legacies for posterity and this should serve as comforting to us

all,' Tambuwal added.
While extending his condolences to the Kano Emirate and the state

government,  the Speaker prayed to Almighty Allah to grant his immediate

family the fortitude to bear the loss.
