All Kano Emirs Have Been Removed, House Majority Leader Says




The Majority Leader of the Kano House of Assembly, Lawal Hussaini Chediyar Yan Gurasa, has stated that all Emirs under the Kano Emirate have been removed.

He stated this while speaking after the Kano State Emirs (Appointment and Deposition) Law was repealed on Thursday, May 23.

Gurasa said the Governor has now been empowered to invite the kingmakers to nominate a new king.

He said;

“This bill in its entity has abrogated the establishment of 5 new Emirates in the state and reverted to the former status of a single emir in Kano which we inherited since the Jihad of Shehu Usman Dan Fodio. That’s what the Bill is now all about and there was a plan to create an additional second-class Emir after this.

“This means that the remaining 5 emirs are no longer in existence. There is no Emir now in Kano. It is now the decision of the governor to appoint a new emir. The Bill has empowered the governor to invite the kingmakers to nominate a new king. So we are now waiting for the governor to ascent to the Bill if he wishes and invite the kingmakers to give him a new king.

“The abolished emirate did nothing but create division among the indigenes of Kano. The unity which was visible for thousands of years in Kano was divided. We are now reverting to our old historical background; one Kano, one people, one Emir.

“We expect cooperation from the people of Kano. This is a welcome development. Kano is now United. That is why we are hoping that the people of Kano will cooperate. We need their maximum cooperation and prayer towards the peace and development of our great state.”
