Emir Sanusi Lamido: Court stops Ganduje from splitting Kano Emirate
A High Court sitting in Kano on Friday, stopped the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, the Kano State House of Assembly, the Speaker, Clerk of the Assembly, including the Attorney-General and the State from implementing the splitting of the Kano Emirate.
The exparte motion dated May 10, 2019, was filed by the plaintiff, Hon. Sule Gwarzo, before Justice Nasiru Saminu, seeking the court to restrain the respondents from taking any action of creating four additional Emirates.
In an order of interim injunction, the Court directed all parties in this suit to maintain status quo, pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.
On Wednesday, Ganduje assented to the Kano Emirs Appointment and Deposition Amendment Bill 2019, after its passage by the State Assembly.
The Kano State House of Assembly passed a bill, establishing four additional emirates and four first class emirs in the state.
The bill, initiated on Monday, passed first reading on Tuesday and scaled through second and third reading on Wednesday.
Ganduje, who spoke immediately after signing the bill into law, said “this is what the people of Kano State want”.
