On behalf of himself, his family, the Federal Government and the people of Nigeria, President Jonathan commiserates with the Emir's family and all the people of Kano over whom the departed Emir presided illustriously as traditional ruler for more than half a century.

More when you continue..

 The President joins them in mourning the monarch whose uncommon leadership qualities and evident faith in the peace, unity, progress, and prosperity of Nigeria combined to make him one of the most respected traditional rulers in the country during his long and very successful reign.

President Jonathan believes that Alhaji Ado Bayero will always be remembered and honoured by the people of Kano and all Nigerians for his immense wisdom and competence as a traditional ruler, as well as for using his exalted throne to build bridges of unity, friendship and harmony across the nation.

The President reaffirms his declaration on the occasion of the Emir's 50th anniversary celebrations last year that the late Alhaji Ado Bayero was one of the most decent and respectable Nigerians he has had the privilege of interacting with, and he will always treasure pleasant memories of their last meeting earlier this year.

He prays that the Almighty Allah will receive the late Emir's great soul and grant the good people of Kano a worthy successor who will carry on his good works and wise rule for the well-being and benefit of all Nigerians.
