President Muhammadu Buhari, on Saturday in Bichi, Kano State called on emerging leaders in the country to rid the nation of divisiveness and unite the people.

KANO FOCUS reports that in an address to the Emir of Bichi, Nasiru Ado Bayero and his people at his inaugural ceremony read on his behalf by Ibrahim Gambari, the Chief of Staff, the President said the prevailing circumstances of the nation impose a demand on leaders to “display their qualities and work earnestly for continued peace and unity.”

The President said:

“Your turbanning at a providential time like this in the history of our country when the prevailing social and socioeconomic conditions have created an opportunity for emerging leaders to display their qualities and work earnestly for continued peace and unity.

‘‘Your father, my friend the late Emir of Kano, Ado Bayero, was a symbol of unity, not only within his Kingdom but also within Northern Nigeria and the whole country.”

Going down the memory lane, President Buhari said when we remember Ado Bayero, we remember unity, we remember simplicity and good leadership, a leader who devoted his life to unify the nation.

“I remember with nostalgia, the passion and commitment he always exhibited in the pursuit of anything he believed in, a distinctive character that almost cost him his life prematurely on 19th January, 2013 because of his vociferous stand against the Boko Haram terrorists.”

President Buhari expressed optimism that the new Emir will exhibit similar qualities and “even much more, as he has begun to exhibit” within the few months of his reign.

The President, who extended his “deep and wholehearted congratulations”, said he will continue to pray for the success of the Emir and looks forward to his contributions ‘‘to uplifting the people of his emirate and Nigerians in general.”

The leader of the Presidential delegation, Gambari, who is an uncle of the Emir, Nasiru Ado Bayero from his mother’s side, reaffirmed his loyalty and affinity to the Emir.

Gambari described the recreation of Kano’s additional four emirates by the Abdullahi Umar Ganduje administration as ‘‘wonderful, historic and innovative.”

In his address governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje said, the creation of 4 additional Emirates in the state, demonstrates how committed and determined his administration is in the promotion of traditional institutions in the state.

“The creation of four additional Emirates, Bichi Emirate inclusive, has demonstrated our practical commitment to the promotion of traditional institutions in Kano state….with this, development can easily go down to grassroots.

“We are grateful for this show of friendship and for honouring our invitation.”

“I am so over-joyed to take part in another historic event of the coronation of another First Class Emir in Kano state, in the person of Alhaji Nasiru Ado Bayero. The Second Emir of Bichi Emirate Council. The son of the 13th Fulani Emir of Kano, the late Alhaji Ado Bayero.

“Distinguished guests, His Highness the Emir of Bichi is a distinguished technocrat, a Banker per excellence and a successful entrepreneur,” Ganduje said.

TheGovernor recalled that, prior to the appointment of the Emir, he served as the District Head of Nassarawa and Tarauni local government councils, adding that “He even held the title of Turaki and Chiroma of Kano. Selecting him to serve as Bichi Emir is apt, considering his royal pedigree and extraordinary leadership qualities.”

He said he was optimistic that, “Bichi will experience extensive transformation under the stewardship of Nasiru Ado Bayero. Kano state government appreciates tremendous contribution of traditional institutions in promoting peace and harmonious coexistence among the people of the state.”

The celebrant, the Emir, thanked President Buhari and the Governor for their support to him. He called on people to plant trees for healthier environment, adding that, “We will do our best in the security of our society.”

Police in Kano said they have rescued a one day old baby abducted at Muhammad Abdullahi Wase Teaching Hospital, Kano.

KANO FOCUS reports that Abdullahi Kiyawa, a police spokesperson in Kano revealed this in a statement issued on Friday.

He said the baby was abducted by a couple Abubakar Sadiq and his wife Maryam Sadiq all of Rijiyar Zaki Quarters, Kano.

It was gathered that the couple were desperate to get a male child.

The statement recalled that on Wednesday one Rabi’u Muhammad of Gayawa quarters, Ungogo local government area reported that on the same day one of his newly-born male twin was found missing at Muhammad Abdullahi Wase Teaching Hospital, Nassarawa.

According to the statement the baby was taken from Muhammad’s sister in-law who was looking after the babies at the corridor of the Maternity ward while she was sleeping.

Kiyawa said upon receiving the report, the Commissioner of Police, Sama’ila Dikko, mobilised a team of detectives to rescue the baby and arrest the culprits.

“The team immediately stormed the scene and launched a search. The Hospital was sealed off and thoroughly combed, but the child could not be found immediately.

“Sustained efforts coupled with intelligence sharing led to the arrest of one Maryam Sadiq, ‘f’, 22 years old, and her husband one Abubakar Sadiq, ‘m’, 50 years old, all of Rijiyar Zaki Quarters, Kano.

“The Child was recovered from them in their home.

“On preliminary investigation, Maryam confessed that the child was taken away from Muhammad Abdullahi Wase Teaching Hospital Kano and that she carried out the act under the influence of her husband who has been longing a male child,” Kiyawa said.

The Police spokesperson said the new born baby has been re-united with his parents and the Commissioner of Police has ordered the transfer of the case to Criminal Investigation Department for discreet investigation.

He said suspects will be charged to court upon completion of investigation.

Mrs Sadik told journalists that her husband Mr Sadik was the masterminder of the abduction, the accusation he promptly denied.

ASUU condemns DSS brutality against Prof Muhammad, threatens legal action

Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Bayero University Kano (BUK) Branch has condemned alleged brutal and uncivilized assault on union’s Kano Zonal Coordinator, Abdulkadir Muhammad, by some operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).

KANO FOCUS reports that a statement jointly signed by chairman and Secretary Haruna Musa and Yusuf Umar respectively described the attack as ”unfortunate, tragic, despicable and embarrassing.”

ASUU considered the attack as the highest form of gross violation of fundamental human rights and has exposed the lack of professionalism on the part of those who perpetrated the cowardly act saying “the attack was unfortunate, tragic, despicable and embarrassing to say the least.”

The statement recalled that “the incident happened on August 18, along the Eastern by-pass in Kano metropolis around 2 pm while Muhammad was driving when these DSS operatives, driving on a high speed and harassing commuters with siren, unprovokedly singled out and stopped him, damaged his car and assaulted him repeatedly.”

“Alas, DSS operatives are notorious for crass violation of fundamental rights of innocent Nigerians through torture and assaults.

“We recall that sometime in 2012, they invaded ASUU-BUK Secretariat at Old Campus and assaulted our then ASUU Kano-Zone Coordinator and Immediate Past Branch Chairperson in their attempt to abduct him.”

ASUU therefore urged the Department of State Services to investigate the matter and bring the perpetrators to book in order to stop the anarchy, torture and harassment of innocent Nigerians.

The Union said it is ready to deploy all the available legal and legitimate instruments to ensure that justice is done on the matter.
