Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has presented the staff of office to the new emirs he appointed in the state last week. This was despite a court order which the governor said came after he had made the appointments.
According to a statement on Monday by his Chief Press Secretary, Abba Anwar, the governor presented the instrument to Aminu Ado-Bayero, the eldest son of the late Emir of Kano, as the Emir of Bichi. Others who received the Staff of Office were the Emir of Karaye, Ibrahim Abubakar II; the Emir of Rano, Tafida Abubakar-Ila; and the Emir of Gaya, Ibrahim Abdulkadir.
Mr Ganduje congratulated the new first class traditional rulers on their upgrade and urged them to always abide by what their Staff of Office represents which includes dedication and commitment to serve their subjects in the areas of security, health care delivery system, education and environment among others.
He assured that his government will work with the monarchs for the growth and development of Kano state in particular and the nation in general. The emirs assured the governor of their support in his bid to develop the state.
