The new Emir of Bichi, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, on Wednesday, May 15, explained why he accepted the appointment to become an emir.
While speaking with newsmen at a press conference, Bayero said he accepted to become the traditional ruler of Bichi because time changes things, Daily Trust reports.
The new emir said that from 1963 when his late father became the emir of Kano till now, a whole lot of changes have happened and would time will continue to change.
He said: “Let me give example with myself. I was appointed Danmajen Kano in 1990 by my late dad; later I became Danburan Kano, then Turakin Kano to Sarkin Dawakin Tsakar Gida and finally to Wamban Kano. It may interest you to know that wallahi, I have never gone to anybody asking for any of these appointments.
“So, the creation of new emirates to me is nothing but changes that always come from time to time. For me, having five emirs in Kano will affect its development if the emirs can work together in peace and harmony. If the emirs have concern about the development of Kano, they can work together and move the state forward. There is no difference between the all of us.”
Bayero also talked on his relationship with the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, saying they have mutual respect for each other and that his appointment will not offend him.
He also said: “Sanusi is my brother. He has respect for me and I have respect for him. I am from the royal family. When he was appointed emir, I was among the first set of people that paid homage to him and I gave him my support and I will continue to support him.
"So, because I am appointed emir, I don’t think he will feel offended and I don’t think he will not support me to succeed in all my undertakings. I have no grudges against him whatsoever and I don’t think he has any against me.”
