Leave Kano for peace to reign — Group urges dethroned Emir Bayero

Leave Kano for peace to reign — Group urges dethroned Emir

The Arewa Social Contract Initiatives, a Non-Governmental Organization, NGO, has urged Aminu Ado Bayero, the dethroned Emir of Kano, to promptly relocate from Kano "in the spirit of peace and stability."

The request followed an emergency meeting held by the group's 19 Northern States chapters in Kano. 

The NGO expressed concerns that Bayero's sudden return, after having vacated the palace and left the state, could provoke civil unrest in Kano.

Sani Muhamud Darma, the National Chairman of the group, conveyed the organization's stance while reading the communiqué of the meeting on Saturday. 

He stated, "Aminu Ado Bayero's actions clearly negate the tradition of the Emirate Council to which he belongs.”

Darma cautioned Bayero, emphasizing that history would not look kindly upon him if he became a source of uncertainty and chaos, potentially leading to significant loss of life and property.

"Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, the dethroned Emir of Kano, should remember that the same person he is challenging today vacated the same seat for him and was even banished to a town far away from Kano, but he accepted what happened in good faith without causing any uproar. Why are you not replicating his actions?”

The chairman also advised Bayero to emulate his siblings and his brother, the former Emir of Bichi, Nasiru Ado Bayero, who left Kano quietly without causing any disturbances.

"Beautifully, look at the Emir of Bichi and other Emirs. Nobody heard anything from them. They respectfully left and vacated their thrones without causing any havoc. That is a clear love for Kano," he added.

It is gathered that Bayero still remains at the Gidan Sarkin Nasarawa Royal Guest House on the outskirts of old Kano City, under heavy guard by armed soldiers, policemen, and NSCDC personnel.

Meanwhile, reinstated Emir Sanusi is consolidating his authority at the Kano Emir's palace, conducting council meetings, and receiving homage from district heads, other traditional rulers, and ordinary citizens.
