The Kaduna government has appointed chiefs for Chikun, Fadan Ayu and Kudaru chiefdoms, signifying the first set of appointments since the new Traditional Institution Law was passed in the state.
This is contained in a statement issued by the Special Adviser to the State Governor on Media and Communications, Mr Muyiwa Adekeye, on Tuesday in Kaduna.
It will be recalled that the new law specifies rotation amongst ruling houses as the succession pattern, except where there is a sole ruling house.
According to a statement by the special adviser to the governor on media and communications, Muyiwa Adekeye, Ishaku Yari has been appointed as Esu Chikun, Ibrahim Ayu Halidu is the chief of Fadan Ayu and Yakubu Iliya Sauri is now chief of Kudaru.
It pointed out that the appointments follow the vacancies created by the demise of their highnesses Danjuma Barde (Esu Chikun), Yahaya Mamuda (chief of Fadan Ayu) and Ishaku Sabo Damina (chief of Kudaru).
“The Ministry of Local Government Affairs will communicate the dates for the formal installations of the new traditional rulers,” the statement said.
