Less than 24 hours after the Kano House of Assembly passed the bill seeking to establish four additional first class Emirate Councils in the state, the governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has given assent to the bill.
The state assembly had earlier Wednesday passed the bill for the creation of four additional first class Emirates to be situated in Rano, Gaya, Karaya and Bichi. This will whittle down the influence of Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi.
Passage of the bill follows the approval of the amendment of the local government and chieftaincy affairs law by the lawmakers, during their sitting on Wednesday.
Also on Wednesday Ganduje while speaking at a media briefing ahead of the 136th state executive council meeting, said he would sign it into law immediately he receives it.
“We heard about a bill sent to the state house of assembly, requesting them to make a law for the creation of four more emirs in Kano,” he said.

“We believe the petitioners did it in good faith. And they want the development of the state. I hope the legislative arm would work on it and forward to me for assent of which I am ready to sign into law without any waste of time.
“That is the popular wish of our people. This will also go a long way in hastening growth and development for the state.”
Ganduje said the idea had been on for many years, adding “With the creation of more emirates, all sectors of the society would improve.
“It will also lead to more concentration on our health, education and other equally important sectors of the society. That is why I said there will be no waste of time in signing the bill into law.
“That is the popular wish of our people. The people of Kano state. This will also go a long way in hastening growth and development for the state.
“The efforts didn’t get through many years ago but now we are happy to see that the idea would come into fruition.”
