Kano state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has assented to the Kano Emirate Council Bill 2019.
With his assent, the newly created four emirate councils and their emirs now have constitutional backing.
The Kano State Governor had on Monday sent a fresh bill to the state house of assembly to create four new emirates in Kano.
This came days after a high court sacked the recently created emirates and emirs. The court said the Kano assembly did not follow due process in creating the new emirates.
The state’s commissioner of information, Muhammad Garba, in a statement to journalists Monday morning, said some of the emirates annulled by the court existed before the Kano emirate, and thus the government’s move was to revive the emirates after the failed attempt by previous regimes.
