Special Adviser to the state governor on Kano Emirate Council, Alhaji Mailafia Sanka, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Kano on Friday.
“The state government has made special arrangements for the grand occasion as prominent personalities from all walks of life are expected to grace the coronation,’’ Sanka said.
Already, he said, dignitaries from within and outside the country had started arriving for the grand occasion.
“The occasion will be held at the newly-constructed Coronation Hall, located in the Government House,’’ he said.
