New Emir of Kano, Sanusi finally moves into palace

The new emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido, was led into his new home on Friday by a retinue of armed policemen, palace guards, friends and other well-wishers.

Sanusi, who was driven into the palace in the official vehicles of the emirate successfully entered into the palace for the first time since he emerged emir close to a week ago through brand new gate, specifically erected for his entry as part of an age-old tradition.

Upon arrival at the palace, the new emir conducted the late afternoon Asr prayer inside the palace mosque and was received by hundreds of joyous subjects in the palace who watched in admiration as palace guards gave him traditional gun salute.

In his Friday sermon to the congregation, the new emir called on all Muslims to fear God in all their dealings.

Sanusi promised to be fair, just and transparent in the discharge of his responsibilities.

The new emir said that Allah gave power to whom he wanted and that he might not be the best among the candidates, but God had.chosen him to lead.

Sanusi also appealed to Muslims to always return to God in time of difficulties for divine intervention.

The emir said "I urge Muslims to draw my attention to whatever wrong I have committed, for I know that to err is human, but to forgive is God."
