Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Uba Sani has said he will comply fully with the judgement of the court in restoring the Chief of Piriga Chiefdom, in Lere LGA, His Royal Highness, Jonathan Zamuna, back to his stool.

Governor Sani stated this while meeting with Kaduna State Council of Chiefs to rub minds on development and security issues, with a view to forging a united and coordinated approach.

The Governor, who stated this on his verified Facebook page, noted that it was imperative to effectively involve “our citizens in the decision making processes.”

He said traditional rulers were not only critical stakeholders, but key influencers that must be accorded all the attention and respect deserving of their exalted position.

While commending the Royal Fathers for standing strong as agents of moral rearmament, and helping to spread the values of honour, dignity and humanity, he appealed to them to continue to position local communities as building blocks for a resilient and progressive nation.

“I assured our Royal Fathers that under my watch, the traditional institution will retain its pride of place. I therefore sought their support and cooperation to enable us quicken the pace of development in Kaduna State,” he said.

Responding, the Chairman of the Kaduna State Council of Chiefs, the Emir of Zazzau, His Royal Highness, Amb. Ahmad Nuhu Bamalli commended the State Government for its infrastructural drive and sustained efforts in security management and peace building.

He pledged the loyalty and support of the Council of Chiefs to the realization of the government’s set goals and objectives.

DAILY POST recalls that the monarch was removed by the previous administration of Nasir El-Rufai on May 22, 2023, based on recommendations from the Ministry of Local Government Affairs.

Dissatisfied with his removal, the royal father sought justice through the court, which ruled in his favour on June 10, 2024.
