Kano was agog on Friday, as Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Buratai; Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Saddiq Abubakar; and Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, witnessed the conferment of Barade Kano on the Interior Minister, Gen. Abdulrahman Bello Dambazau (rtd).

Osinbajo also witnessed the conferment of the Zannah Kano on Dr Aminu Ahmed Sadiq, a retired Assistant Comptroller of Customs and Alhaji Habibu Bello Dankade as Fagacin Kano respectively.

Speaking shortly after the ceremony, the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, said the Emirate Council would ever remain consistent in giving honour to whom it is due.

Sanusi stressed that the conferment of the titles would serve as a source of inspiration to those who might wish to emulate them.

According to him, the three personalities were conferred with the titles considering the spectacular role they have been playing in promoting the ideals of the Kano Emirate Council over the years.

He said the three eminent personalities had proven their worth in contributing their quota towards the socio-economic and political development of the country in their respective field of human endeavour at the time when such contributions were most needed.

The emir also counselled the appointees to offer meaningful advice to the Emirate Council and government on issues affecting the wellbeing of the entire people of the state in particular and the country general.
