2.15pm – Ceremony over with closing prayers. Have paid homage to the new Emir and on my way back home.
The Emir’s Palace is still completely surrounded by the Police that are refusing all entrance or exit. It appears that Federal coercive power is being deployed to interfere with a 200 year tradition… Sad… Kano has a new Emir. End of the story. God Bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria. – Nasir El-Rufai
