Karaye Emirate to support NYSC, renames village
The Emir of Karaye, Alhaji (Dr.) Ibrahim Abubakar II has reaffirmed his Emirate’s continued support to National Youth Service Corp (NYSC).
The Emir made the statement while receiving the state NYSC Coordinator, Alhaji Bala Ladan in his palace.
Alhaji Abubakar II said the service is a programme that fosters unity and understanding among the multiple ethnic groups in the country.
He added that his Emirate would remain committed towards accommodating corps members.
Earlier, the state NYSC Coordinator, Alhaji Bala Ladan had told the Emir that so far 2,152 corps members from 36 states have registered in the camp.
The coordinator also announced that arrangements are on the pipeline for the corps’ medical team to commence medical outreach services in the area.
Gifts were later presented to the Emir in appreciation to his tireless support to the corps members, according to Haruna Gunduwawa, the Information Officer of the council.
Meanwhile, the Emir has changed the name of Unguwar Wawaye settlement in Kadana village of Rogo Local Government Area to Yalwar Kadana.
The Emir made the decision when the community presented Malam Habibu Auwalu to the Emirate to be appointed as the deputy Imam of their Friday Mosque.
He said the change became necessary considering the derogatory nature of the former name which sounded embarrassing to the people of the community, directing: “the settlement will henceforth be called Yalwar Kadana not Unguwar Wawaye.”
On the appointment of the deputy Imam, the Emir approved him after he was tested by the Chief Imam of Karaye, Ustaz Aminu Abdulkadir.
In related development, Alhaji Abubakar II has received the Director General of Kano State Agency for the Control of Aid (KSACA), Dr. Sabitu Yusha’u Shu’aibu Shanono in his palace.
