Kano Assembly abolishes 5 emirates, deactivating Emirs in the state

The Kano State House of Assembly on Thursday, May 23, repealed the law establishing the five newly created Emirate councils in the state.

Following the development, Lawan Hussaini Chediyar Yan Gurasa, the Majority Leader and sponsor of the Amendment Bill, said there is no active Emir in Kano at the moment.

“The bill has been sent to the governor for assent, now there is no longer an active Emir in Kano in all the five Emirates; Kano, Bichi, Gaya, Rano and Karaye.

“The law now provides the Governor to call on the traditional kingmakers to choose a new king.”
