Accept my congratulations, Mr. Sanusi Lamido Sanusi. Leadership comes with responsibilities. There are personal sacrifices to make for the collective good. There are tough choices to make for the collective good. There are unlimited kindness to extend to the underprivileged so that they can survive.

I challenge our new Emir of Kano to look back and use that as a pedestal to move forward.
Kano has a long history. There was a time when Kano was central to everything called Northern Nigeria because of her socio-economic and cultural influences.

One of such times, I learnt, was when the late Othman Dan Fodio had to seek permission from the Emir of Kano to settle in the remotest part of the kingdom, Sokoto village. The journey to Mecca and Medina for spiritual cleansing and anointment, the trans-Saharan trade, etc remain part of Kano history.

There was a time when Kano State alone had more dams than all other States in Nigeria combined.
The political influence of the Emir of Kano has dwindled. The restriction of the Emir of Kano to his local government in the 1980s marked the beginning of unwanted history.

So also was the attempted attack on the late Emir by restive and aggressive group within kingdom. The groundnut pyramid has disappeared. Nature itself is turning another way. Sahara desert is fast encroaching. Flooding is more rampant. Socially, the series of bombings in Kano in recent years has created an impression that peace and security are flying away.

Restoring Kano to her old glorious state will be a Herculean task. But it is possible. It is possible if the leadership is committed to honesty, human kindness, accommodation of opposing views, and most importantly a deep trust in Allah (God). You will make history if Kano is restored. I challenge you to think in this light.

I leave the rest till another time. Once again, CONGRATULATIONS.
