It explained that Ibrahim Abubakar II, the new emir of Karaye, forwarded his acceptance letter at about 12 noon on Friday, while Tafida Abubakar Il, his Rano counterpart, accepted around 10:15 am.

Aminu Ado Bayero, the emir of Bichi, and Ibrahim Abdulkadir, the emir of Gaya, accepted the appointment at 10am and 10:30am respectively.

“Letters of the notification of appointment were written from the office of the secretary to the state government, Alhaji Usman Alhaji, since Thursday, May 9, 2019, and were dispatched to the concerned emirs the following day Friday, May 10, 2019, in the very early hours of the day.”

“These four Emirate Councils existed for many centuries ago. We deemed it wise to revive them in order to fast-track our development agenda,” he said.

Published

on

Adamu Aminu, Kano.

The Hon. Abubakar Zakari Muhammad, immediate erstwhile member of Tarauni constituency in Kano Assembly has urged the Senator, Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso to look upon his fatherly status in the state and national political domain to desist from devaluing his personality, through making utterances capable of tarnishing his hard-earned calibre.

Hon. Zakari made the assertion while speaking exclusively to newsmen over the weekend in Kano.

He said, the erstwhile Senator seems to be taking pleasure out of sponsoring hour-long, simulcast live, program with various radio stations in Kano, backstabbing Ganduje’s and his laudable projects in the state.

” In view of the utterances been made by the Senator Kwankwaso in those radio programs, one would easily and clearly understand that the former governor is gripped with obscurity syndrome,” He said.

Hon. Zakari added that, it is unarguably known that Senator Dr Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso is a hard-baked and consummate politician of national repute,
but he said “the way and manner he is comically responding to questions put to him is utterly disappointing and not in conformity with the status of the man of his calibre, close to thirty years of having political experiences.

He assert that, the former governor who is formerly known for sternly and irascible disposition, feared by his subordinates, but it has become trending and subjected to stylishly ridicule by the teeming press men interviewing him, whereby he comically responds randomly to the lowest ebb of his personality.

Adding that, Senator, Kwankwaso was a successful politician in almost all ramifications, but his misguided utterances has surely shown that he’s discontented and fell-short of realizing that God made him what he used to be, and he should let his successor on the corridor of power to heaved a sigh of relief.

“But still yet, he fails to comprehend that anything comes with time, and elapsed when everything reach its peak period” He added.

Hon. Abubakar, the flamboyant politician, who was part of the defunct Kano eighth Assembly urged the former Darfur envoy, to take solace, been a sure-footed politician who knows the sweety taste of election victory and swallows the bitter pills of defeat, and urged his die-hard loyalist to follow suite.

Adding that losing grip on power at the state and national levels, should not be a matter of disorientation to the extent of losing hard-earned credibility through unwarranted statements.

At last, Hon. Abubakar Zakari Muhammad fondly called ‘Habu P.A.’ urged urged fellow politicians to recall that God gives power and takes it to whom he wishes at any appointed time.

Emphasizing that hard times are not forever, and life is always not a bed of roses.
