The Kano Emirate Council has debunked rumors that the Emir of Kano has sacked the Majasiddi of Kano Alhaji Auwalu Maja. Speaking with newsmen, Chief of Staff to the Emir, Alhaji Mannir Sanusi, Danburam Kano, said that Majasiddi is still in the Emirate’s Service and exercising his responsibility as provided.
“The Emir has no hand in the reports that filtered last week, if anyone does wrong, the Emirate Council can dismiss him, so in the case that such happens, an official sack letter should be issued to the person, but who did so? Majasiddi knows that his predecessor was sacked outrightly about 30 years ago, but he isn’t”
When asked if the Majasiddi is being punished for welcoming Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje from his trip last Wednesday, Danburam Kano replied that there is no reason for that because the Governor is a friend of the Emirate.
“The Governor is our friend and brother, this rumor was just created by some devilish individuals within the palace to cause discord between the Kano Emirate and Late Ado Bayero’s family”.
