The 15th Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero, on Saturday, said he has shelved the planned Sallah Durbar activities for peace to reign in the state.

Bayero stated this while delivering his Sallah message broadcast at the Nassarawa mini palace on Saturday.

He said the durbar ceremonies earlier scheduled were shelved following recommendations of the security and for peace to continue to reign in the State.

He seized the opportunity to felicitate with President Bola Tinubu and Kano State Governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf, on the Sallah celebration occasion.

In his words: “On this day when all Muslim faithful are observing the day of Arafat, we felicitate with all during this important occasion.

“Eid is practised and we are taught by our holy prophet to sacrifice animals if we are opportune to. For those who cannot afford it, we pray to Allah to grant them what to sacrifice.

“We therefore felicitate with the President and the Governor on the occasion of Sallah and we pray that God gives them the courage and strength to deliver.

“We call on them to continue to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people, protection of their lives and properties while also the people should pray for their leaders.

“We have lifted all durbar activities following the recommendations of security operatives for peace to continue to reign,” Bayero stated.

Meanwhile, Sarkin Dawaki Babba, Aminu Babba Dan’Agundi also announced that the Emir will be observing his Eid prayer at the Nassarawa mini palace on Sunday by 8 am.
