Kano residents, friends and relatives and traditional rulers across Nigeria and beyond converged on Kano Government House on Saturday for the official coronation of the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II.

Emir Sanusi was selected the 14th Emir of Kano following the death of his predecessor Alhaji Ado Bayero in June 2014.

At the coronation ceremony, the Emir promised to serve the emirate with the fear of God and in accordance with Islamic teachings.

The occasion was to officially turban Muhammadu Sanusi II and hand over a staff of office to him.

The Emir was sworn-in by the Chief Imam of the Kano Central, Professor Sani Zaharadden, witnessed by the former Heads of State, General Yakubu Gowon and General Muhammadu Buhari, Governors of Niger, Zamfara, Yobe, among others.

The occasion was also attended by the Sultan of Sokoto, Oba of Lagos and the Emir of Damagaram in Niger Republic, among other traditional rulers.

Receiving the staff of office from the governor, the Emir promised to rule in accordance with the tradition.

“I thank everyone for attending this occasion, especially the governor for selecting me. I assure you that I will lead you in accordance with Islamic teachings and with the fear of God irrespective of your tribe or religion,” he said.

The Kano State Governor, Rabi’u Kwankwaso, who described the Emir as a man of humility and justice, said that his selection followed a series of consultation with kingmakers and other concerned authorities who authenticated that the Emir was a kind and generous man.

After the Emir was kitted, he was shown to the people of Kano Kingdom.

It is a major activity that follows the coronation and it gives the District Head and other traditional rulers the opportunity to pay homage to the Emir.
