The Katsina State Government, acting on the advice of the Katsina Emirate Council, has approved the retirement of Alhaji Abubakar Abdullahi Ahmadu, who held the title of Sarkin Kurayen Katsina and served as the District Head of Kuraye. This decision was reached following the allegations of misconduct and a breach of legal procedures related to the approval of marriages.
The official announcement was disseminated through a press release issued by the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the State and was endorsed by the Director of Press, Abdullahi Aliyu Yar’Daua.

This announcement underscores the state government’s unwavering commitment to upholding the rule of law and safeguarding the welfare of its residents. It serves as a reminder of the critical importance of adhering to established protocols and legal requirements, especially in the case of marriage contracts, particularly when public officials are involved.
