The principal private secretary to the deposed emir of Kano, Mujtaba Abba, has resigned from the Kano emirate council.
Mr Abba, a half brother to the recently deposed Kano emir, Muhammad Sanusi, also voluntarily relinquished his traditional title of ‘Falakin Kano’.
According to our source, he tendered his resignation on Tuesday in a letter written to the secretary of the Kano emirate council, and copied the councillor, finance.
Mr Abba was appointed by Mr Sanusi, and subsequently elevated to the position he held when the former monarch parted ways with his uncle, Isa Sanusi, who was the first person to hold the post in Kano emirate.
