From Edwin Olofu, Kano

The Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, has directed 36 out of 44 local government district heads not to attend Daushe Durbar at the palace of Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II.
The government countered an announcement from the Kano Emirate Council on local radio inviting all district heads to attend the grand Daushe Durbar, which usually holds a day after Sallah
A statement by the governor’s spokesman, Abba Anwar, on Sunday, said Ganduje directed the district heads not to heed to the emir’s directive but go to their respective emirates for their durbar “Against some calls circulating in the social media, that all District Heads were directed to attend Hawan Daushe
at Kano Emir’s palace, the Kano state government has directed all Hakimai to attend Hawan Daushe at their respective Emirates.
“It is therefore directed that District Heads from Bichi Emirate should attend their Hawan Daushe with the First Class Emir of Bichi, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, District Heads from Rano Emirate should attend Hawan Daushe with their First Class Emir Alhaji Dr Tafida Abubakar (Autan Bawo).
“All District Heads from Karaye Emirate should attend Hawan Daushe with their First Class Emir, Alhaji Dr Ibrahim Abubakar II, all District Heads from Gaya Emirate should attend Hawan Daushe with their First Class Emir, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdulkadir and those District Heads from Kano Emirate are also directed to attend Hawan Daushe with their First Class Emir, Muhammadu Sanusi II.
“While directing all Hakimai to comply with this directive, the state government wishes all Muslims fruitful, peaceful and prosperous Sallah celebration. As all measures to have smooth, peaceful and hitch-free celebration are put in place,” the statement reads.
However, earlier in the day, Ganduje and Sanusi had participated in the Eid-el-Kabir prayers held at the Kofar Mata Central Eid ground in Kano township, and led by Sanusi.
On May 8, the governor assented to a controversial law establishing four additional emirates with first class emirs in Rano, Bichi, Karaye and Gaya.
