The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, has commended the governor of Cross River state, Ben Ayade, for appointing a Kano indigene as a commissioner, and others as aides in his government, describing him as a detribalized Nigerian.

The Emir, who spoke on Wednesday during a courtesy call on the Governor, at the Executive Chamber of the Governor’s Office, Calabar, urged other governors to work towards national cohesion, by emulating Ayade’s nationalistic posture.

The Kano monarch was in Calabar, for his installation as the new Pro- Chancellor of the University of Calabar.

The Emir also thanked President Muhammad Buhari for the appointment as Pro Chancellor, saying that he is happy to be part and parcel of the institution, and pledged to work with the Vice Chancellor, Professor Florence Obi, “to take the great University of Calabar to a greater height”

Responding, Governor Ayade expressed optimism that the Emir’s tenure as Pro Chancellor of UNICAL will usher in a new dawn for the university, given his connections, pedigree and experience.
