Muhammadu Sanusi II

The Kano Assembly has nullified the Emirates Council Law, resulting in the removal of all positions created under the previous law as outlined in the new legislation.

All positions created by the previous law are no longer valid according to the new legislation. Additionally, all district leaders promoted or assigned under the previous law are required to return to their former roles.

Following Thursday’s session, Lawan Hussaini Chediyar Yan Gurasa, the Majority Leader of the Kano State House of Assembly and sponsor of the Amendment bill of Kano Emirate, said, “the bill has been sent to the governor for assent, now there is no longer an active Emir in Kano in all the five Emirates; Kano, Bichi, Gaya, Rano and Karaye.

“The law now provides the governor to call on the traditional kingmakers to choose a new king.” Hussaini added
