Emir of Kano, His Royal Highness Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, will on Thursday 27, August 2020 arrive the ancient city of Ilorin as part of his familiarization tours to emirates across the nation since his ascension to the throne.

“On arrival at the Ilorin International Airport, the monarch would be received by high and powerful traditional chiefs of Ilorin Emirate with horse riders ushering him into the city. The visiting Emir will participate in a special Jumat service and prayer session organised in his honour for a successful reign on the stool on Friday 28, August 2020.
“The visit is a home-coming for the monarch being a grandson to the late eighth Emir of Ilorin, Shehu Abdul Kadir Dan Bawa and cousin to the current and 11th Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji (Dr.) Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari CFR.”

While thanking members of the public for their anticipated cooperation, the statement appealed to security agents to be proactive and maintain adequate protection of lives and property as well as traffic situation during the visit.
