Mr. Usman also revealed that a grand Durbar would be staged on Saturday to commemorate the event.

“As you know horse Durbar is a tradition identified with not only Kano, but the entire Northern part of the country.

“There will be a grand Durbar for the entertainment of the Emir and his subjects on Saturday,” he said.
