The Emir of Rano in Kano State, Alhaji Tafida Abubakar Ila, is dead. The emir died Saturday in a hospital in Kano at the age of 74.
He died at a hospital in Kano on Saturday, almost one year after the Kano State Government created four new Emirate Councils and made him a first-class emir in Rano.
A member of the House of Representatives and Turakin Rano, Alhassan Rurum, confirmed the death of the emir.
The lawmakers said the Emir died at a hospital after a brief illness. He is survived by 17 children and two wives.
President Buhari Condoles With Kano State Gov, Emirate Over Death Of Emir Of Rano
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.
