Tambuwal Mourns Ado Bayero
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.
