A prominent Kano politician, strong ally of President Muhammadu Buhari and cousin to present Emir of Kano, Alhaji Bello Isa Bayero, is dead.

According to family sources, he died Thursday night at the age of 87 at the Malam Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital (AKTH) after a brief illness.

He was the National Chairman, APC Supporters Movement and onetime Chairman of the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON).

Alhaji Bello was born into the Kano royal family; his father was a brother to the late Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero.

He was a seasoned politician who held several positions in both the private and public sectors.

The late Alhaji Bello Isa Bayero aspired a number of times to represent Kano Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly.

Meanwhile, Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has commiserated with the Kano Emirate Council over the death of the elder statesman.

In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Abba Anwar, the governor said “We received, with deepest shock, the death of Alhaji Bello Isah Bayero, who died when the state and the nation needed him the most.

“He was a gentleman par excellence, whose political leadership helped in the restoration of our democracy”.
