Kano Assembly dissolves four new emirates created by Ganduje

The Kano State House of Assembly has dissolved all the four newly created emirate councils in the state.

The dissolution of the affected Emirates was a sequel to deliberations on the floor of the House during plenary on Thursday.

The Kano State Emirates Council Amendment Bill was considered on the floor of the House after scaling second and third reading on Thursday morning.

Earlier, the Deputy Speaker, Muhammad Butu, explained that repealing the law would revive the lost glory of Kano as the division of Kano emirate to five reduced the capacity and dignity of the state at national level.

The Majority Leader, Lawan Dala, said that the emirate council served as a custodian of culture which was distorted by the creation of the four additional emirates.

With the amendment of the law, all four new emirate councils were abolished leaving only the Kano Emirate.

The House also adopted a motion to create a new second-class emirate council in the state.
