The former Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has announced the addition of a baby girl to his family through his fourth wife, Saadatu.
One of the deposed Emir’s son, Ashraf confirmed the birth of his step-sister on Instagram.
He added that the newborn girl will be named Halimatu Saadiyya following a plea by the ex-Emir’s second wife who pleaded that Sanusi name the baby girl after his first wife, who took care of Saadatu while she was pregnant.
“Whenever people asked me about my mothers, I’d say I have 3 (now 4) because all of my father’s wives are my mothers. In that spirit, I want to share something that warmed my heart with you. My first mum, Yaya (Giwa) has basically taken care of the 4th, especially through this trying period.
My second mum, (Goggo) Mamie, seeing this pleaded with my father to name the new baby after her (Yaya). And Masha Allah the new baby is named Halimatu Saadiyya (Rafeeqah). This is the spirit of family and peace that makes me happy.
May that peace continue to reign. Here she is with her elder siblings that In Shaa Allah won’t bully her , MashaAllah. Please say allahumma barik, or MashaAllah Tabarakallah for my little sister.”
