Bauchi gov’t lifts suspension on Emir of Misau
Bauchi State government has lifted the suspension of the Emir of Misau, Alhaji Ahmed Suleiman and reinstated him to his throne.
The emir was suspended at the wake of a communal clash over land between farmers and herders which claimed 11 lives in the area about four months ago.
An administrative panel that investigated the clash indicted the monarch for dereliction of duty, which fueled and escalated the fatal crisis in his domain and recommended that the emir be warned, made to tender a written apology and be recalled back to the throne.
The emir was called back from the suspension on Monday via a letter lifting the suspension, which was presented to him in his Palace in Misau by the Secretary to the State Government, Sabiu Mohammed Baba, in the company of the Chief of Staff, Government House, Ladan Salihu.
Speaking after receiving the letter, the emir reiterated his loyalty to the state government saying that his subjects, who are peace loving will continue to live in peace with each other and support promotion of peaceful coexistence in the state.
When contacted, Senior Special Assistant to Governor Bala Mohammed on Media, Mukhtari Gidado, told Daily Trust that the emir had tendered the written apology to the state government as recommended by the investigative panel before he was reinstated to his throne.
