APPOINTMENT OF EMIRS IS ILLEGAL_Ehiabhi Femi

A Kano state high court has sacked four emirs appointed by Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of the state.

Usman Na’Abba, the presiding judge, gave the order on Thursday. His judgment averred that the creation of the Emirates and appointment of four first Emirs was illegal.

In may, the governor created four additional emirates in Kano — Bichi, Rano, Karaye and Gaya — in a bid to whittle down the influence of Muhammad Sanusi II, emir of Kano, though he said the move was for administrative convenience.

He said the challenges of the Kano emirate are “too weighty” and that the new ones will bring development closer to Kano citizens.

The creation of the new emirates was said to have been targeted at Sanusi who reportedly worked against his reelection.
