The Global News reports that the 16th Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi has approved the appointment of Hamisu Sani as the new Ward Head for Kofar Mazugal, Dala Local Government area of the state.

Emir Sanusi called on the new ward head to ensure peaceful coexistence among his subjects in the area and contribute his quota towards the development of the state as a whole.

Meanwhile, more district heads and members of the Tijjaniyya Shura Council, a council of Islamic Sect, have affirmed their loyalty to Emir Sanusi.

Other prominent individuals, such as Khalifa Sayyadi Bashir, Khalifa Abdullahi Uwaisu, Sheikh Ibrahim Shehu Maihula and Habibu Dan Almajiri, also endorsed Sanusi.

During his initial court session on Sunday, Sanusi received the fealty of 40 district heads and prominent individuals within the council.

The development came as calm returned to the city of Kano, following the tension created by the emirate tussle.

The News Agency of Nigeria, which monitored the situation in Kano on Thursday, observed that many residents of the city were going about their normal activities.

Although security agencies were seen at the emir’s palace and guest house where Bayero currently stayed, the residents of the city seemed undisturbed by their presence.

Alhaji Kabiru Abubakar of Dakota Quarters said most Kano residents were more concerned about their livelihoods than who became the Emir of Kano.

He expressed confidence in the political and religious leaders in the state to resolve the matter very soon.

Hajiya Aishatu Danlami of Brigade Quarters commended the state government for banning protests, which she said prevented miscreants from taking advantage of the situation to cause mayhem.

“Allah has spoken, and Sanusi is now in the palace, piloting the affairs of the Emirate. May Allah continue to guide him to bring about the progress we desire,” she told NAN.

Alhaji Abdullahi Yakubu said the return of Sanusi was a reflection of the desire of the people of the state.

Alhaji Musa Isa of Dala in the Dala Local Government Area called on Bayero to accept the situation as the will of God.

Isa said there could only be one emir at a time and urged Bayero to move on with his life as “Allah has spoken through the installation of Emir Sanusi.”

NAN reports that the Kofar Kudu palace of the emir had been a beehive of activities with people from various parts of the city trooping to witness royal displays and performances.

These include traditional gun salutes for the emir and the riding of well-decorated horses by palace aides.

Hawkers of various wares also took a position in front of the palace, selling foods, drinks, textile materials, shoes and prayer mats, among others.

Praise singers and drummers were at the palace daily, entertaining guests who came from various parts of the country to pay homage to the re-appointed emir.
