People Of Kano Jubilate As Sanusi Rides Camel

People of Kano went wild with jubilation last Saturday as their Emir, Malam Muhammadu Sanusi II, rode on a she-camel as against the usual horse, during a durbar, organised to mark the Eid-El-Kabir in arrears.

The event, which took place in the evening, became a talk-of-the town as youths and women in purdah rushed out to watch the royal father riding a camel.
Some of the women and youths, who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), described the royal father’s mounting of a camel “as a pleasant surprise to his people.”

They hailed the emir’s sense of “innovation”, saying he had been adding “colour” to the throne since he became the emir.

One of the women interviewed, Amina Kofar- kudu, said the emir had been creative in the administration of the palace.

She added that since his installation, a lot of changes had occurred, ranging from people’s welfare, to the display of the palace culture.

Malam Lawan Abdullahi, a resident of the palace, said history showed that the emir’s grandfather once rode on a camel to a durbar in Kaduna.

He praised the emir for adding value to the culture of the people through innovation.

A university student, Malam Farid Ahmad, said he was full of excitement to have witnessed the durbar.

“I have never seen live, an emir riding on a camel, so to me it is a new experience, “ he said.
