In a statement congratulating Sanusi, Atiku said the new Emir had worked strenuously to fulfill a life-time ambition, and that he should use his position to unite all the ruling houses of Kano State and its people behind his appointment.
According to Atiku, leadership is a test from God, and therefore urged Sanusi to use his position to do justice to all manner of people in his domain. The former Vice President noted that Sanusi’s greatest and immediate challenge was sustaining Bayero’s passionate commitment to tolerance, unity and peaceful coexistence.
According to him, the Emir should make the unity of his people a central focus of his administration.
Atiku told him to be tolerant and act in the best interest of the people of his domain at all times.
He prayed to God to bestow him with wisdom, a necessary tool in dealing with the challenges of his office.
