Second Republic lawmaker, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, says Kano Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, did the right thing by approving the splitting of the state Emirate.
According to him, the development was in response to the age-long desire of majority of the people of Kano.
“If the governor does not create Emirates, who will do so,” he quipped in a chat with Vanguard.
“Governor Ganduje is simply responding to the age-long and popular demand of the people of the state.
“He should be applauded for this bold and courageous action, which has been widely accepted by the broad spectrum of our people.
“Ganduje has not breached any known law by his action”, he added.
The appointment of the new emirs – Aminu Ado-Bayero (Bichi); Tafida Ila (Rano); Ibrahim Abdulkadir (Gaya) and Ibrahim Abubakar ll (Karaye) – means the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi now controls only 10 local government councils of the 44 in the state.
All Emirs would have equal powers and are to be on same first class status as Sanusi.
