Buhari reacts to death of Abubakar Bawo, Emir of Rano

President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with Kano State Government and Council of Chiefs over the passing of Emir of Rano, Alhaji Tafida Abubakar Ila Auta Bawo.

WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that the Emir of Rano, Dr Tafida Abubakar Ila II passed away few hours after he was hospitalised over an undisclosed sickness.

Meanwhile, a statement on Saturday by Garba Shehu, Buhari's Spokesman said the President joins the family and Rano Emirate in mourning the royal father.

He described the emir as someone, 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."

It added that "Buhari urged 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."
