The Kano State governor Ahdullahi Ganduje has defied court order to appoint new Emir in Kano.

The Kano State governor Ahdullahi Ganduje has defied court order to appoint new Emir in Kano.

The governor on Saturday said he had issued appointment letters to the new Emirs before the court issued a restraining order.

He added that the new emirs had accepted the appointments, adding that it was too late to obey the court order.

The domain controlled by the Emir of Kano, Emir Sanusi was further diminished after the state house of assembly passed a bill to break up the emirate in the state.

As a result, the emir of Rano, Gaya, Karaye and Bichi were appointed.

According to a statement signed by Abba Anwar, Chief Press Secretary to the governor, the restraining order was issued on Friday, May 10 but the appointment letters were issued on May 9 with reference number SSG/REPA/5/A/86/T to the new emirs.

He added that Tafida Abubakar 11, his Rano counterpart, and Ibrahim Abubakar 11 who is the new emir of Karaye have all forwarded their acceptance letter in the morning of Friday to 12pm before the court gave the order later on Friday the 10th.

“Letters of the notification of appointment were written from the office of the secretary to the state government, Alhaji Usman Alhaji, since Thursday, May 9, 2019, and were dispatched to the concerned emirs the following day Friday, May 10, 2019, in the very early hours of the day.”

“These four Emirate Councils existed for many centuries ago. We deemed it wise to revive them in order to fast-track our development agenda,” he said.
