Former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, said on Saturday in Kaduna that for electing a former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Malam Nasir el-Rufai, the people of the state had chosen a competent leader.

Sanusi led the Kano Emirate Council to congratulate el-Rufai, who he described as "competent and capable" on his victory at the April 11 governorship election in the state.

El-Rufai defeated incumbent governor Mulkhtar Yero at the poll.

The Governor-elect's spokesman, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, quoted the Emir in a statement to have commended the people of the State in their choice of el-Rufai, whom he said would take the State to the next level in terms of development.

Sanusi said the people of Kaduna had elected a competent and capable governor who would provide sound leadership to the state.

The ex-CBN governor was also quoted to have called on the people of the State, irrespective of religion, ethnic and political affiliation, to pray and support el-Rufai for peace and even development in the state.

The statement read: "The Emir expressed his confidence that el-Rufai will provide strong leadership, good governance and unite the diverse peoples and faith communities of Kaduna State.

"Sanusi further charged el-Rufai to focus on responsive and dedicated leadership and never to lose his connection with the people.

"The Emir, who recalled his decades of friendship with el-Rufai, said he is delighted 'that Nigerians with such ability and experience are stepping forward to offer themselves for leadership'.

"Sanusi prayed that God would grant el-Rufai a successful tenure and bless the people of Kaduna State."

In his response, El-Rufai thanked the Kano monarch for his visit and commended him for redefining the traditional institution.

El-Rufai told the Emir that his administration would not disappoint the people of the State.

He said he would operate an open door policy and would be ready to listen to the yearnings of the people, irrespective of their religion or ethnic background.
