Kano Govt kicks as court ruling sacks four new emirs

Following the Court’s decision to nullify the newly created emirates in Kano, the State Government has maintained its stance and vowed to recognize the sacked emirs.

This was made known in a statement issued by the state’s information commissioner, Muhammad Garba.

Recall that the four new emirates created by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje named first-class emirs in May are Bichi, Rano, Karaye and Gaya, were nullified by the Kano high court.

Protests erupted in some of the affected emirates after the ruling.

Mallam Garba expressed regrets that the court does not recognize the constitutional authority conferred on the state government on matters such as this.

Accordingly therefore, the statement adds, the Government will not fold its arms and concedes such constitutional power in the interest of the wellbeing of the people and general development of the state.

He submitted that the government still recognizes them as First Class Emirs and will continue dealing with them as such irrespective of the court’s decision.

It says the state government therefore advised people to be calm, law abiding and await further action.
