The Information Officer of the emirate, Babangida Jahun, in a statement on Thursday said the new title holder would be turbannd on Friday at the Emir’s palace.

Kari was appointed following the sack of Alhaji Muhammadu Bello-Kirfi on January 3.

He was ousted for “disrespect and disloyalty” to Governor Bala Mohammed and the state government.

Kirfi was Minister of State, Foreign Affairs, and Minister of Special Duties during the Shehu Shagari and Olusegun Obasanjo administrations.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned his removal, noting that the Jakadan Bauchi and the Wakilin Birni suffered similar treatment.

APC spokesperson, Sabo Mohammed accused the State government of undermining the traditional institution.
