Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has directed the Emir of Rano to sanction the district head of Bebeji, Haruna Sanusi, over his resignation.
He gave the directive during a condolence visit on Sunday to the Emir of Rano, following the death of the wife of Justice Wada Rano, Hajiya Khadija Wada Rano.
“If it is true that he resigned, the emir can just send a representative there before the appointment of a substantive district head,” the governor said.
Naija News recalls that Haruna Sanusi had resigned as the district head of Bebeji in protest against the new Emirates, but later withdrew the resignation letter.
Speaking, Ganduje assured that the new emirate councils had come to stay, insisting that they were created in good faith.
The governor recalled that as the son of a village head, he could not destroy or be involved in anything that would undermine the heritage of the traditional institution in the state.
His words: “As a son of a village head (Dagaci), how can I do something that would jeopardise the corporate existence of our long-standing heritage?
“If you count my ancestors, not less than ten of them were village heads up to my biological father. So I really don’t understand when people say my government is up for harming this noble institution.”
