For The First Time, Post-Ramadan Activities Suspended Over Emir’s Health


Kano emirate, yesterday, announced the suspension, for the first time, the 700 years tradition of post-Ramadan festivities because of the ailing Emir, Alhaji Ado Bayero.

A senior Councilor in the emirate council, Alhaji Abbas Sanusi, said the 15th Fulani emir would only attend the Eid prayers on Sallah day.

Sanusi, who is also the Wambai Kano, said: “All other celebrations, from Sallah homage, visit to the state governor and the traditional Hawan Nassara-wa, Hawan Daushe and Hawa Dorayi, where the emir interface with his subjects, have been canceled in view of the health condition of the emir.”

Post-Ramadan festivities were made popular by late emir of Kano, SarkinYaji Dan Samiya, who ruled between 1349 and 1385, before the invasion of Fulani Jihadist in 1804.

The Wambai Kano said: “The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, has directed me to inform all District Heads and traditional title holders that the traditional Sallah activities have been canceled.”

Vanguard gathered that the announcement by Wambai followed marathon session by all the District Heads, including Danmajen Kano and Central Bank Governor, Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.
