President Muhammadu Buhari has sent a message of condolence to the people and government of Kano State over the death of the Emir of Rano, Alhaji Tafida Abubakar Ila Auta Bawo.
Buhari urged them to accept the death of the traditional ruler in good fate and ensure the legacies he left behind are not truncated.
Naija News recalls the Emir of Rano passed away on Saturday at a hospital in Kano at the age of 74.
The President’s condolence message was contained in a statement on Saturday by Mallam Garba Shehu, his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity.
He said: President Muhammadu Buhari commiserates with Kano State Government and Council of Chiefs over passing of Emir of Rano, Alhaji Tafida Abubakar Ila Auta Bawo.
The President joins the family and Rano Emirate in mourning the royal father, whose 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.
President Buhari urges his family and the Emirate to find solace in the good works of the deceased and ensure his legacies are carried on.
The President prays that the almighty God will forgive the shortcomings of the Emir, remember his good works and grant his soul eternal rest.
Meanwhile, it will be recalled Rano Emirate Council is one of the four newly created emirates in Kano state by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje after the old Kano Emirate was balkanized.
