Kano assembly passes bill for creation of four emirates

The Kano State House of Assembly, on Wednesday, passed the Bill for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs into law, paving way for the decentralisation of the Kano Emirate council.

Among others, the law will give room for the creation of four more first class emirs in the state, which include Rano, Karaye, Bichi and Gaya emirate councils.

Earlier, a committee was constituted by the House to decentralise and create four more first class emirs, following a petition written by some legal practitioners.

According to the petition, the establishment of the emirates would facilitate more development to the people, as well as provide security in the respective areas.

Reading the joint committees’ report before the floor of the House on Tuesday, the Majority leader, Baffa Danagundi, said the report also recommended the review of the law.

He said the decision to pass the bill into law followed wide consultation with stakeholders, adding that the feedback the committee received from the public was overwhelming and impressive.

According to Danagundi, the law, if signed by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, will enable the emirate council to have their own kingmakers except Bichi, which would have its kingmakers from the old emirate council, Gidan Dabo, in particular.

Ganduje had promised to sign the Bill into law without hesitation as soon as it is passed by the House.

He said: “We heard about a Bill forwarded to the State House of Assembly, requesting them to enact a law for the creation of four more emirs in Kano.

“We believe those that did this did it with good intention. And they want the development of the state.”

Furthermore, Ganduje disclosed that the idea had been in the state, among citizens, for a pretty long time.

“The effort did not scale through those years, but now, we are happy to see that the idea would come into fruition,” he had said.

With the creation of more emirates, Ganduje argued, all sectors of the society would enjoy improvement.

“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,” he added.
