A prominent Kano politician, Alhaji Bello Isa Bayero is dead. Death is inevitable, it comes at an unexpected time and it doesn't respect age or status. A lot of great people have lost their lives in Nigeria this new year.

Alhaji Bello Isa Bayero died at the age of 82. He left behind two wives and eight children. May God comfort his family, friends and colleagues and grant his soul eternal rest.

His death has been described as a great loss to the APC family in Kano State.

According to a close friend, the burial of the politician will be held according to Islamic rights on Friday. He will be buried after Jumat service at the Emir's palace.

We have no option than to accept death as one of the characteristics of a living being. If humans have the ability to detect when death will come knocking, maybe some people wouldn't have died. Life sometimes looks empty and worthless to the living when they remember that an entity as death exist. But nature is something we can't cheat, humans can't question God's authority so we ought to accept life the way it is. May God grant his soul eternal rest, Amen.
