Ganduje’s plan materialises, as Kano Assembly passes bill to create 4 new emirates in the state


The insistence of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje to create four additional emirates in Kano State seems to have started yielding expected result.

This was especially as the state House of Assembly, on Thursday, passed the new emirates bill presented to it by the government.

The approval of the bill by the state lawmakers was revealed at plenary by the Assembly speaker, Alhaji Abdulaziz Garba Gafasa.

The four new emirates in council include Bichi, Gaya, Rani and Karaye.
The bill was adopted by the legislators after it made first, second and third readings.

The state government led by Ganduje had returned to the state’s lawmakers after a Kano High Court presided over by Justice Usman Na’Abba, on November 1, annulled the establishment of the four emirates, earlier created in May 2019.

The court had based its ruling on the claim that the Assembly failed to follow due process in the creation of the emirates.

Now that the fresh bill had been passed supposedly following due process, Governor Ganduje is expected to give his assent to it.
