    The new Emir of Kano, HRH, Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, I hereby felicitate on the victory into the Throne of traditional rulers of Kano State. There is no doubt, even in the bible God said that the rejected stone become the chief conner of the building. You can take the look the life of Joseph in the bible when his 11 brothers gange against him at last He became their helper they even bowed before him. He that God lift no man can bring him down, they succeeded in selled their brother not kown that they sent him forth to a everlasting wealth that how life can be. But one thing I request of you that make sure the peace reign in our Great Nigeria through boko haram because traditional rulers are the most peace maker so far on earth. I kown you can do it for my dear country. Long Lives HRH Sanusi Lamido Sanusi!
    Long Lives Kano State!!
    Long Lives our great NIGERIA!!!.
