A Kano High Court has nullified the creation and appointment of four new Emirates by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

KanyiDaily recalls that in May, Governor Ganduje appointed the four emirs as first-class chiefs and upgraded their domain into emirate councils, a deliberate attempt to reduce the influence of the Emir of Kano Mohammadu Sanusi.

Those presented with the letters of appointment by the governor include Aminu Ado Bayero, the son of Late Emir of Kano, Ado Bayero, as the Emir of Bichi; Ibrahim Abulkadir as the Emir of Gaya; Tafida Abubakar as the Emir Of Rano and Abubakar Ibrahim II as the Emir of Karaye.

The creation of the new Emirates was however met with controversy as four Kano State kingmakers filed a suit against Ganduje and the State Assembly.

During its ruling on Thursday, November 21, 2019, the presiding Judge, Justice Usman Na’Abba insisted the additional four emirates and their first-class emirs created by Kano State Government were not properly constituted and thereby render invalid.

The court invalidated and ordered the immediate dissolution of their emirate councils established alongside the emir’s appointment.

Justice Usman also ruled that the Kano State House of Assembly had violated the provision of Section 101 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended), which allows the assembly to make laws, insisted the law creating the emirates were null and void.
