Kaduna State Government has appointed Chiefs of Chikun, Fadan Ayu and Kudaru Chiefdoms, signifying the first set of appointments since the new Traditional Institution Law was passed.

A statement on Monday, signed by Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication, Mr Muyiwa Adekeye, disclosed that Mr Ishaku Yari has been appointed as Esu Chikun while Alhaji  Ibrahim Ayu Halidu is the Chief of Fadan Ayu and  Mr. Yakubu Iliya Sauri in now  Chief of Kudaru.

Adekeye said that the appointments “follow the vacancies created by the demise of their Highnesses Dr. Danjuma Barde (Esu Chikun), Alh. Yahaya Mamuda (Chief of Fadan Ayu) and Dr. Ishaku Sabo Damina (Chief of Kudaru).”

According to the statement, Governor Nasir El-Rufai has congratulated the new Chiefs on their appointments and has wished them peaceful and successful reigns.
