BY OUR CORRESPONDENT – Reprieve has come for a repentant Emir of Misau, Alhaji Ahmed Suleiman with his immediate recall from suspension by the Bauchi State Government.
The government had slammed an indefinite suspension on the embattled traditional ruler following the deadly clash between the farmers and herds men that claimed 11 innocent lives, with property worth several hundreds million Naira destroyed in his domain.
And against the backdrop of government’s White Paper on recommendations by the Panel of inquiry that investigated the immediate and remote causes of the crisis, Alhaji Suleiman was ordered to tender a public apology for alleged dereliction of duty and inaction that escalated the unfortunate incident.
However, following what competent sources described as “high-powered” intervention from eminent and respected personalities across northern Nigeria, the State government was forced to reconsider its initial hard stance.
Consequently, the Emir’s was conveyed in a letter presented to him on Wednesday, October 14, 2020, by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Sabiu Baba.
With the development, ofgicial government sources confirmed that the royal father has now resumed his rulership of the Misau Emirate, comprising both Misau and Dambam Councils.
On receipt of the letter lifting his suspension, the Emir assured the government of unalloyed loyalty and support, pledging to work hard in ensuring unity and peaceful co-existence within Misau Local Government Area of the State.
