A Kano State High Court has declared the appointment and the installation of four new emirs by the Kano State government as null and void.
This is coming on the heels of the installation of the emirs by the Governor Umaru Ganduje at the weekend following the Balkanisation of the century-old emirate by the Kano state government.
It was reported that Ganduje was carrying out a personal vendetta against the Emir of Kano Muhammad Sanusi II in order to whittle down his influence as a traditional leader.
But the governor, in his reaction, noted that the future of the state was taken into consideration before Kano Emirate was divided into five smaller units.
Ganduje said, “For easier local administration as Kano state moves in a new direction to deliver community-based growth, we have decided to create 4 new Emirates for our great state”.
