President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, the Emir of Kano on the conferment on him, of 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.

In a congratulatory message by his media aide, Malam Garba Shehu, on Thursday in Abuja, Buhari said the honour on the Emir was richly deserved.

The Nigerian President commended his Senegalese counterpart for spotting the inherent qualities of the traditional head of the most populous northern city in Nigerian.

The President 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 as well as his promotion of the friendly and strategic partnership between Nigeria and Senegal.”

He, therefore, urged the Emir to continue to build on the good work he has been doing.
