Jonathan mourns Kano emir Hashim

30 September 2014, 07:57

Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan has commiserated with the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, and the people of Kano on the death of Alhaji Tijani Hashim, one of the most powerful members of the Kano emirate council, the Galadiman Kano.

He was 79 when he died in Abuja on Monday from an undisclosed ailment.

According to a statement by Reuben Abati, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Jonathan joined them in mourning of the deceased, who 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 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.”

Abati said President Jonathan prayed that God Almighty would receive the late Galadiman’s soul and grant him eternal rest.

He also prayed that the Almighty blessed the good people of Kano with a worthy successor to the late prince.
