Reacting to the news, Bello stated that Kano has lost a golden king.
“The North has had many dark days. In fact, it continues to have very dark days thanks to every metric on the human development index.
“This very sad news from Kano is as dark as it gets. Every reform minded Northerner that is devoid of partisanship is in mourning today.
“I’m still in shock. One must commend the Governor of Kano for his strides in infrastructure. The world class Cancer Centre being built and his recent moves in education. In particular, banning street begging. Security remains intact too but Kano and Arewa has lost a golden King.”
