Former NPA MD, Ado Bayero Gets Second Sack In 2 Months

Ill-luck seems to be hunting the many ambitions of Alhaji Lamido Sanusi Ado Bayero, Ciroma of Kano, following a repeated trend of dismissal from office trailing him in the past two months.
On August 13, Ado Bayero was sacked by President Muhammadu Buhari after serving for barely three months as Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), a position he occupied on appointment on April 29, by former President Goodluck Jonathan.
He was then appointed by Jonthan to replace the incumbent, Mallam Habib Abdullahi.
Again, Ado Bayero has been sacked by the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II after he refused to pay homage to the emir.
The Emir has appointed the District Head of Dala, Alhaji Nasiru Bayero to replace him as the new Ciroma.
Bayero’s sack was contained in a statement signed by the Galadiman Kano and Senior Councillor in the Emirate, Alhaji Abbas Sanusi, made available to newsmen in Kano on Wednesday.
According to the statement, the former Ciroma, who was also the District Head of Gwale, was removed following his refusal to pay homage to the Emir, since he was appointed on June 8, 2014.
The statement read, “It is against the Sharia and the traditional institution for any District Head and member of the Emirate Council to refuse to pay homage to the Emir.
“The former Ciroma was a district head and a member of the Emirate council, hence the decision to remove him.”
The statement added that all district heads and other traditional rulers in the state had since paid homage to the Emir with the exception of the former Ciroma.
