President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday congratulated Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, the Emir of Kano, on the conferment on him, the highest honour of the Republic of Senegal, the “National Order of Lion.”

The honour was conferred on the emir by President Macky Sall at the Presidential Residence in Dakar in the course of the emir’s recent visit to the country.

Buhari, in a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, said the honour on the emir was richly deserved and commended his Senegalese counterpart for spotting the inherent qualities of the traditional head of the most populous northern city.

He said the Senegalese honour award upon the emir was a recognition “for his exceptional services in promoting peace, harmony and the well-being of his people and as well as his promotion of the friendly and strategic partnership between Nigeria and Senegal.”
