Despite recent high court sacking the four Ganduje crowned emirs and their emirates councils, the Kano state executive council has approved an Emirate Council Bill 2019 which provides for the establishment of additional emirates in the state.
The passage of this bill endorses the establishment of four new emirates namely Rano, Gaya, Bichi and Karaye
The bill has now been forwarded to the State House of Assembly for necessary action.
A press statement issued by the commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba at the end of the Council Session held at the Council Chambers, Government House, Kano, yesterday, indicated that some of the proposed emirates pre-dated Kano in ancient times but efforts to revive them during the Second Republic was short-lived.
He said the council discussed the decade long clamour for the establishment of additional emirates in the state with a view to bringing more development to the people of the new Emirates.
