Ramadan: Emir of Kano tells traders to reduce food prices


The Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado-Bayero, urged essential commodity traders to lower the prices of foodstuffs and goods, facilitating an affordable Ramadan for the masses.

He emphasized this appeal during the launch of the book ‘Dauloli a Kasar Hausa’ in Zaria, urging wealthy Nigerians to assist the less privileged during the holy month.

Ado-Bayero commended the publisher for detailing the Hausa Kingdoms in areas like Kano, Katsina, Zamfara, Kebbi, and Zazzau.

“They offered a clear explanation of the administrative system of governance deployed by each kingdom, their trades, norms and values,” he said.

The book reviewer Ahmed Zaria of the Kaduna State University said the 356-page book has seven chapters.

Mr Zaria said the book provides a clear narrative and history of the Hausa kingdoms, their politics, administration, norms, and values from their inception.

He added that the book is a must-have copy for students and researchers in linguistics and history.

The don, who advised academics not to relent in research activities, lamented that some academics abandon research upon reaching the professorial cadre.

The publisher, Mr Gusau, said the book was an attempt to harmonise the written history of the Hausa Kingdoms, adding that most of the research at the universities was on a few kingdoms and not all.

Mr Gusau added that the book also attempts to support harmony and strengthen unity among the Hausa kingdoms and other Nigerians.
