Demise Of His Royal Highness Alhaji Dr Ado Bayero (Emir Of Kano)
It was Kenneth Blanchard that said “The key to successful leadership today is influence not authority”. This statement depicts the person of His Royal Highness Alhaji Dr Ado Bayero, the Emir of Kano, who successfully ruled his subjects for 50 years but whose reign unfortunately ended in the early hours of this morning, June 6 2014 after his recent return from an overseas medical trip. He led with influence, he was a propagator of peace, an ambassador of goodwill and a leader full of wisdom.
We pray that God gives the Ado Bayero family, Kano Emirate Council and all his subjects the grace and fortitude to bear the loss. In a country bereft of moderate and genuinely socially accommodating monarchs, he was such a refreshing, peace-loving, approachable and extraordinary ruler and he will be sorely missed.
May his soul rest in perfect peace.
