President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the Kano State Government and Council of Chiefs over the passing of Emir of Rano, Alhaji Tafida Abubakar Ila Auta Bawo.
According to a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media & Publicity), Garba Shehu on Saturday, Buhari urged the family of the late Emir to find solace in his good works.
The statement read: “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.”
