For allegedly breaching the laid down turbaning procedure, Bauchi Emirate Council has dismissed 55 traditional rulers.
The disengaged traditional rulers were selected for coronation in five different communities, Lushi Takololo, Yayirc, Baram-Gada Ta Kasa, Wuntin-Dada and Sabon-Garin Birshi Gandu in Miri District.
The hamlet heads of the five villages installed the ‘traditional title holders’ sacked without following due process.
The Chief Information Officer of the Emirate, Babangida Hassan Jahun disclosed this in a statement made available to reporters in Bauchi on Friday.
The Emirate Council arrived at the decision in its meeting, warning district and hamlet heads in the Emirate to shun reckless coronation without recourse to relevant superior authorities in line with the established coronation guidelines of the Emirate.
Similarly, the Emirate issued warning letters to the District Head of Miri who doubles as Danjikan Bauchi, Hussaini Abubakar Othman and the village head of Birshi, Muhammadu Lawal Ahmed for their inability to enforce full compliance with the turbaning procedure of the dismissed traditional title holders.
WikkiTimes recalls that six traditional rulers were suspended in the Emirate for alleged involvement in partisan politics. Their suspension followed the dethronement of Muhammadu Bello Kirfi as Wazirin Bauchi earlier this year.
