Kano High court declares Ganduje’s appointment of new emirs null and void

A Kano state high court sitting at Ungogo has declared the appointment and the installation of four new emirs by the state government as null and void.

Daily Nigerian reports that in his ruling on Wednesday, May 15, Justice Nasiru Saminu, directed all parties in the suit to maintain the May 10 status quo pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

Governor Abdullah Ganduje had on Friday, May 10, defied the court order and issued appointment letters to the new emirs. It was also gathered that between May 11 and 12, the governor presented the new emirs with their staffs of office.

Ganduje had on Wednesday, May 8, created four additional emirates with first class emirs in the state, a move that was alleged to have been carried out to whittle down the influence of Emir Sanusi.

It was learnt that one Nasiru Sule Gwarzo filed a suit challenging the creation as well as the installation of four new emirs in the state.

Similarly, on Tuesday, May 14, the state’s kingmakers, who are four in number, had approached the court challenging the governor’s decision, saying Ganduje’s action distorted the history of the emirate.

According to one of the reliefs they sought, the kingmakers lamented that giving effect to the purported law has distorted history, especially as it regards to the positions they are holding in the emirate.

The top emirate council members further said their position is a heritage in trust for their respective clans of Jobawa, Sullubawa, Yolawa and Dambazawa.
