The governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has begun reading the third book before he approves the appointment of the new emir of Zazzau.
The throne became vacant, following the death of the 18th Emir of Zazzau Shehu Idris on September 20.
Recall that in a Facebook post on Thursday, the governor said he had begun reading Prof M G Smith’s book on the selection of Zazzau Emirs centuries ago.
On Friday, the governor announced that he began reading Robert Heussler’s “The British in Northern Nigeria” to get an insight on the appointment of emirs.
But in a Facebook post on Saturday, Mr El-Rufai said he started reading the third and final book, which is Dr Hamid Bobboyi’s Principles of Leadership According to the Founding Fathers of the Sokoto Caliphate.
“While awaiting the review of the kingmakers’ report by the Ministry for Local Government, I am on my third and final book on the selection process – Dr Hamid Bobboyi’s Principles of Leadership According to the Founding Fathers of the Sokoto Caliphate.
“The recommendations of the Ministry & security reports on the aspirants will then be sent to me for final decision.
“Please continue to pray for me to choose the Emir that will prepare Zazzau Emirate firmly to flourish amidst the challenges of the 21st Century,” the governor said.
