The law will now allow for the creation of four more 1st class emirs in the state, which include Bichi, Gaya, Rano and Karaye emirate.



The Kano assembly on Monday embarked on its earlier plans to amend the law following a petition filled before the house by one Ibrahim Chambers.

The petitioner demanded for the upgrading of some traditional rulers to the status of 1st class emirs.



Meanwhile, Sahara Reporters in an exclusive report had revealed how Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has concluded plans to forcefully dethrone the Emir of Kano, over his refusal to help him rig in the just concluded gubernatorial elections in the state.



A very credible source familiar with the situation told Saharareporters “it is true, plans are in top gear. The governor felt Sanusi’s call for free and fair elections in the state was an affront on his plans to return to office and that it means he was backing former governor Rabiu Kwankwaso”.



“The first plan is that they now want to probe how he (Sanusi II) is spending emirate funds as they did before” the source revealed.

In consonance to what our source revealed, on the May 7th, 2019, the Kano state Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission opened a fresh probe on the alleged financial mismanagement in Kano Emirate Council under the watch of Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II.



The commission invited two of the Emirs uncles and brothers to appear before it on Thursday; they are to answer questions on what they know over alleged financial scandal rocking the Kano Emirate Council.



The source further told SaharaReporters, the second step is to “pick up the account details and then give it to the media to embarrass Sanusi and use that as a basis to dethrone him”.

The third step, “is to create new emirate councils that will serve as a bulwark against the Emir”.



The Kano State House of Assembly on Monday initiated a move to create four additional Emirate Councils in the State that would elevate the current status of some District Heads to First Class Emirs.



This move according to their source is to mobilize elements within the emirate loyal to Governor Ganduje to present a united front in ousting the Emir.
