The ‘chief singer’ of Kano emirate council, Naziru Ahmad popularly known as Naziru Sarkin Waka has decided to throw in the towel days after his boss Sanusi Lamido Sanusi was deposed as the Emir of Kano.
Naziru Ahmad in a letter announcing his resignation addressed to the Secretary, Kano emirate council, on Wednesday, expressed appreciation for the opportunity to have served with the Emirate council for the past one year.
The singer whose resignation comes after the principal private secretary to the deposed emir, Mujtaba Abba also resigned, added in the letter, that he humbly appreciates his appointment and expressed his loyalty not only to the council, but the state as well.
“I write formally to inform you that from Monday March 13th, 2020, I have voluntarily resigned my appointment as ‘Sarkin Wakar San Kano’ with effect from 13th March 2020.
“This is to humbly appreciate my appointment and express my loyalty to not only the council, but the state as well.
“I wish to express my sincere gratitude for the said appointment and the opportunity to serve with the Emirate council for the past one year has been a rewarding experience that I will cherish for the rest of my life,” the letter added.
Naziru Ahmad’s letter comes after the Kano State Government gave reasons for the dethronement of Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Emir of Kano.
A statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Usman Alhaji, indicated that some of the reasons were alleged insubordination, refusal to attend official meetings and breach of Kano Emirate Law.
The statement further revealed that Sanusi’s removal was a unanimous decision of members of the State Executive Council.
