Emir Sanusi suffers dethronement threat as 4 new emirate councils emerge



Muhammadu Sanusi II

The Kano State House of Assembly has passed the bill for the creation of four additional first class Emirates.

This follows the approval of the amendment of the local government and chieftaincy affairs law by the lawmakers, during their sitting on Wednesday.

ROYAL NEWS gathered that there is strong move by Ganduje to dethrone the reigning Emir of Kano HRH Sanusi II over a call by Sanusi for free and fair elections in the state.

The bill, if passed into law, will pave the way for the decentralisation of the Kano Emirate council thereby reducing the number of the emirates under the influence of the sitting  Emir of Kano

Abdullahi Ganduje, the state governor has vowed to assent to the bill.

He gave the assurance while speaking to newsmen on Wednesday ahead of the 136th executive council.
