Buhari, Others Pay Tributes To Maryam Ado Bayero

President Muhammadu Buhari On Thursday paid glowing tributes to the late Nana Maryam Ado Bayero, mother of two Emirs, saying she deserves recognition by the Guinness Book of World Records for her uniqueness and positive impact on humanity.

Speaking at the launch of the Biography on the mother of Emir of Kano and Emir of Bichi, entitled; “Maryam Ado Bayero: A Woman of Royal Virtue”, the President who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, described late Maryam as an extraordinary mother full of compassion and love for all who came her way.

The book chronicles the life and times of Hajiya Maryam Ado Bayero, Mai Babban Daki, mother of two First Class Emirs of Kano and Bichi, Alhaji Aminu and Alhaji Nasiru Ado Bayero.

President Buhari described the late Maryam Ado Bayero as an embodiment of tradition and modernity, a thorough-bred royal who lived a life of a trailblazer, compassionate, human, generous and warm.


Gambari who represented the President said; “As we celebrate this outstanding royal lady, the president asked me to convey to this audience his commitment to preservation of tradition and modernity. And nobody exemplifies that link between tradition and modernity than the lady we are honouring here today.

As a professor of political science and a student of history myself, I am yet to stumble on a more interesting personality such as my late elder sister, who in her life time had the good fortune of being the granddaughter of an emir, the 7th Emir of Ilorin; daughter of another emir (8th Emir of Ilorin) and wife to an outstanding revered Emir of Kano, late Ado Bayero and mother of two Emirs (Bichi and Kano). This should have entered the Guinness Book of Records. By virtue of this great piece of history by Ambassador Sani Hajo (author), we have captured and immortalized her life and works for future generation to rely on as a compass.”

Speaking on the achievements of the President as he prepares to leave office, Gambari said the Buhari administration is leaving the a foundation of free and fair election that has produced the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.


He said; “Mr President finishing his eight years term in office strong and well, leaving behind many legacies, which includes the foundation of free and fair election that has produced the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
