New Emirates: Kano Govt carpets court ruling, insists on recognizing Emirs





Kano State government says it is studying the ruling of Kano High Court on the creation of four new Emirates in the state with a view to taking immediate appropriate action.

A Kano High Court presided over by Justice Usman Na’Abba, had dissolved the four additional Emirates and first class Emits created by the State government.

But a statement signed by the state Commissioner of Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, regretted that despite the constitutional power and authority conferred on the State Assembly on such progressive and important issue, the court ruled otherwise.

The statement added, “The government will not fold its arms and concedes such constitutional power in the interest of the wellbeing of the people and general development of the state.”

Malam Garba said that despite the ruling, the government still recognized them as First Class Emirs and will continue dealing with them as such.

The government advised people to be calm, law abiding and await further action.
