Ganduje is playing his cards powerfully.
The governor of Kano State has signed a bill passed by members of the Kano State House of Assembly for the creation of four additional first class Emirates. The additional first class Emirates include Rano, Gaya, Karaya and Bichi Emirates.
In a motion presented by the Majority Leader Baffa Babba, the House unanimously agreed that creation of more Emirates will “assist in job creation, dispute, and community conflict resolutions among others.”
The law has now decentralised the Kano Emirate council and by extension, decentralised the power of Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II who is currently at loggerheads with the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.
