” It is probably the first in Sokoto. Danmaje is expected to be a very close Prince to the Sultan and someone who leads other Princes in assisting him in the day to day affairs of the Sultanate”, the Sultan said.

The position of Durbi held by Khadir Dasuki started in Katsina before the Danfodio’s Jihad and was occupied by a member of the Royal house of Katsina Dikko Dan Gidado, the first Emir appointed by the British.
