Ganduje weakens Sanusi’s powers, creates 4 new Emirates

Ganduje on Wednesday signed into law the creation of four new Emirates. The Emirates created are for Gaya, Bichi, Karaye and Rano.

According to the new bill, the Emir of Kano will only preside over ten Local Government Areas of the forty-four in the state.

Bichi Emirates comprises of Bichi, Bagwai, Shanono, Tsanyawa, Kunchi, Makoda, Danbatta, Dawakin Tofa and Tofa Local Government Areas.

The Rano Emirate will get Rano, Bunkure, Kibiya, Takai, Sumaila, Kura, Doguwa Tudun Wada, Kiru and Bebeji LGAs

And Gaya Emirate is made up of Gaya, Ajingi, Albasu, Wudil, Garko, Warawa, Gezawa and Gabasawa LGAs.

The implication of creating additional emirates is that the powers of the present Emir of Kano, Malam Muhammad Sanusi ll, will be reduced.

The four proposed emirates are presently being headed by district heads and if upgraded, will have emirs as heads.
