SANUSI | Court Orders Ganduje To Dissolve Newly Appointed First-Class Emirs

Share This

A Kano State High Court has quashed the appointment and installation of four new first-class emirs by the Kano State Governor, Umaru Ganduje.

The court also ordered the governor to withold all actions regarding the division of  the centuries-old Kano emirate pending the hearing of the suit against the appointment of the emirs file by one Rabiu Salihu Garwzo.

Ganduje installed the four emirs over the weekend having signed the Kano State Emirs Appointment and Deposition Amendment 2019 last Thursday with a rare speed.

The moved to balkanise the Kano emirate has been widely criticised as a personal vendetta against the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II who has remained an ascerbic critique of his administration and for opposing his reelection as governor of the state last March.

But the governor insisted the future of the state was taken into consideration before Kano Emirate was divided into five smaller units.

“For easier local administration as Kano state moves in a new direction to deliver community-based growth, we have decided to create 4 new Emirates for our great state,” Ganduje said on May 10.

Governor Ganduje signed the Kano State Emirs Appointment and Deposition Amendment 2019 into last Thursday and the emirs were given their letter of appointment on Friday.

A court order barring the governor from appointing and installing new emirs was issued by Justice Nasiru Saminu on Friday. But the state government claimed the order came after the persons appointed as emirs had accepted their appointments.

The governor is also facing another suit brought against him and state government by four kingmakers – Madakin Kano, District head of Dawakintofa, Yusuf Nabahani; Makaman Kano, District head of Wudil, Abdullahi Sarki-Ibrahim; Sarkin Dawaki Mai Tuta, District head of Gabasawa, Bello Abubakar and Sarkin Ban Kano, District head of Dambatta, Mukhtar Adnan.

The Kano House of Assembly, the Attorney General of Kano State and the new emir – Tafida Abubakar-Ila, Ibrahim Abdulkadir, Ibrahim Abubakar ll and Aminu Ado-Bayero – were also named as defendants in the suit.
