The Oba Yoruba in Kano, Murtala Alimi Otisese, has appointed a new caretaker committee to manage the affairs of the executive council of the Yoruba Community in the state.

This followed Kano High Court Number 5 presided over by Justice Usman Na’abba order restraining the leadership of the community from parading themselves as executives of the community pending hearing and determination of a suit.

The court ordered the Oba Yoruba Kano to appoint a caretaker committee to manage and exercise all powers within the ambit of the constitution of the community for a period not more than six months.

Addressing journalists at the Yoruba Community House on Sanusi Road in Sabon Gari, within Kano Metropolis, the new Chairman of the committee, Abduljaleel Shoga, said the committee was inaugurated in compliance with the court order in Suit Number: K/S94/2022: Hon Seyi Samuel Olorunshola versus Abdullateef Faisu and 12 Others.

He said, “The head of the Yoruba Community in Kano, Alhaji Murtala Alimi, mandated the new caretaker committee to embark on holistic reconciliation of pockets of all misunderstandings among the Yoruba families in Kano, review of the community constitution, set in a very robust and well-articulated means of building a befitting Yoruba edifice housing the Palace of the Oba Yoruba Kano, offices of council members and a cultural heritage learning centre and conduct an all-inclusive election of Yoruba community executive council members.”

He urged all relevant institutions to give the new committee maximum cooperation that will ease their task.
