The new emirs are Aminu Ado Bayero (Bichi), Ibrahim Abdulkadir (Gaya), Tafida Abubakar (Rano), and Ibrahim Abubakar (Karaye).
Muhammad Garba, commissioner for information, said the new emirs would receive their letters of appointment and staff of office at a ceremony at Sani Abacha Stadium on Saturday.
Sources told TheCable that last night, Ganduje informed the appointed emirs of their elevation and directed them to begin preparations for their new assignment.
Governor Abdullahi Gaduje ‘s action is believed to be political as he also ignored a Kano high court that restrained him from implementing the law to break up the emirate. This moe is said to be targeted at Sanusi who repeatedly worked against his reelection.
But speaking with state house correspondents earlier on Friday, Ganduje denied that his action had political undertone.
“We are taking Kano to the next level and we need the active participation of the traditional system, especially in the areas of education, security, agriculture,” he said.
“By decentralising the emirate, we followed history. Years back, the situation was not that.”
He insisted that he had no personal score to settle with Sanusi, whom he said ought to be reporting to a local government chairman.
“So, it is not vendetta, I am not against him (Sanusi). In fact, he is supposed to be reporting to the local government chairman according to the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” he said.
“It is the local government chairman that is supposed to discuss issues with him, not the governor.”
