The Kano State Government Tuesday appointed Alhaji Muhammad Kabir Inuwa as the New Emir of the Rano Emirate.
Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Usman Alhaji made the announcement..
According to Alhaji, Emir Kabiru was selected out of three candidates submitted.
Meanwhile, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has urged the new emir to continue to discharge his duties in accordance with tradition.
This appointment comes days after the death of the former Emir, Tafida Abubakar-Ila.
Recall that Abubakar-Ila died at a hospital in Kano on Saturday, almost one year after the state government created four new Emirate Councils and made him a first-class emir in Rano.
A member of the House of Representatives and Turakin Rano, Alhassan Rurum, confirmed the death of the emir.
The lawmakers said he died at a hospital after a brief illness.
He was survived by 17 children and two wives.
