He loves reading, playing squash, travelling, farming and horse-riding ─ welcome to the world of Alhaji Lamido Sanusi Ado Bayero, who lost to Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi in the race for the emir of Kano.

The man addressed as Chiroman Kano (that is his traditional title) is not your typical Nigerian royal; he is on facebook.

Who knows, he could have even made his BB pin available to his subjects for easier pinging. This is the era of the modern kings who carry iPads and read news on their smart phones.

He joined facebook on March 9, 2011 and implored his followers to drop their messages in English for the sake of those who do not speak Hausa. He appears to be a bridge-builder.


He wrote: “I say Barka da zuwa to everyone… As long as I love your comments concerning Chiroman Kano, I will also appreciate it if you can translate your comments in English for the sake of people who are outside the Northern region and Nigeria who do not understand Hausa, since it is all about declaring a man of purpose and integrity to the world… Long live Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Ado Bayero… Thank you all.”

For a man who speaks four languages ─ English, French, Arabic and Hausa ─ fluently, he can afford to open four different facebook accounts if he wants.

His facebook profile reads thus: “He is the first child and Son of Emir of Kano – Alhaji (Dr.) Ado Bayero. Sanusi Lamido Ado Bayero, a well known Philanthropist and a historical instrument of change. As a member of the Royal Family of the ancient City of Kano State, He understands that it is imperative to know the need to be an upright citizen of Great Nigeria which he is and a good example of subjects to follow.


“As a man of culture and vast experience in different cultures, the Chiroman Kano, is a member of the Doha Conference on Inter-Cultural and Civilization Dialogue. He speaks fluently 4 languages: English, French, Arabic and Hausa.

“He is a Benchmark for performance, dependable partner, a formidable and fantastic achiever. He is also a firm believer of Religious tolerance; is a member of the Inter-Faith Conference Faiz, Morocco.

“As a Legal Practitioner, he believes in Civil Right, Justice and rule of Law which is of essence to him. Currently, he is a Principal Partner at a Law Firm – Lamido & Co. and also sit on the Board of several Companies and Financial Institution as a Director.”

Born on April 1, 1956, he attended Rano Boarding Primary School, Kano, from 1963 to 1969, Rumfa College, Kano from 1969-1973 and Government College, Birin Kudu from 1973-1975.


He earned a Diploma in French from Ecole International De La Langue Francoise, Paris, in 1979, and did his A Level at the College of Arts & Science between 1975–1976.

He bagged a Diploma in Law in 1979 from the Institute of Administration Kongo, Zaria, and went on to to Ahmadu Bello University for his Bachelor’s Degree in Law (BL) which he finished in 1983.
