The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) on Thursday called newly appointed Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi to uphold sanctity of the emirate and unit the royal family members.
They urged HRM Sanusi to consider his appointment as a rare opportunity to serve his people in this new capacity.
The statement reads: “May Allah give the new Emir the wisdom and courage to see this new position as the father of Kano people and by extension Northerners and Nigeria at large. The new Emir should therefore bring his wealth of experience, competence and exposure to bear in uniting the royal family members and people of Kano for a peaceful transition and continuation of the good legacies of [the] late Ado Bayero.
“ACF has an unflinching regard and respect for the traditional institutions as peace stabilizers, custodians of our core values, culture and customs. We therefore call on HRH Sanusi Lamido Sanusi to uphold the sanctity of the institution and consider his appointment as a rare opportunity to serve his people in this new capacity. We pray that Almighty Allah will protect and guide him and also bless his reign with peace, unity and development.
“The traditional institution of Kano is highly revered and respected not only by Kano people (Kanawas) but [by] all Nigerians and even beyond our shores because of its rich cultural heritage and accommodation of all manners of people irrespective of their religious, political and tribal inclinations.”
The ACF advised people of Kano to support Emir Sanusi, urging them to seek dialogue rather than violence, describing the appointment of the new emir as something “decreed by Allah.”
The group called for peace and tranquility to reign, adding that violence and destruction have never solved problems, while urging Nigerians to always seek peaceful and acceptable ways of resolving disagreements and grievances.
