Valentine Chinyem



The Emir of Rano, Dr Tafida Abubakar Ila ll, one of the four emirs of the newly created emirates in Kano State, is dead.

A member of the House of Representatives representing Rano and Bukure, Alh Kabiru Alhassan, told journalists in Kano that the deceased died at Nasarawa Hospital in Kano.

However, President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with state government and Council of Chiefs over the death of the emir.

In a statement issued by Garba Shehu, Media Aid to President Buhari, the president said the late emir’s words of wisdom, nobility and decency will be sorely missed, especially at a time the government is relying on traditional rulers to sensitize citizens on directives for safety.

The President implored his family and the Emirate to find solace in the good works of the deceased and ensure his legacies are carried on.
