Jonathan Condoles Emir Sanusi II And People Of Kano On Death Of Galadiman Kano


President Goodluck Jonathan has
commiserated with the Emir of Kano, Alhaji
Mohammed Sanusi II and the people of Kano
on the death of the Galadiman Kano, Alhaji
Tijani Hashim.
Alhaji Hashim, who was considered one of
the most powerful members of the Kano
Emirate Council, died early hours of Monday
in Abuja at the age of 79. He was also the
oldest prince in the emirate.
In a statement yesterday by his Special
Adviser on Media and Publicity, Reuben
Abati, the president joined people of the
state in mourning Alhaji Tijani, who he said
served his people admirably over many years
as a regional minister in the first republic and
very senior member of the Kano Emirate
Council.
The statement reads in part: “The president
believes the eminent Kano prince and highly
revered community leader will always be
remembered and honoured for his laudable
contributions to peace, stability and progress
in his community and country.
“President Jonathan prays that God Almighty
will receive the late Galadima’s soul and
grant him eternal rest”.
The president also prayed God Almighty to
bless the good people of Kano with a worthy
successor to the late prince.
