Kano Assembly Repeals Law Establishing Additional Emirates

Kano Assembly Repeals Law Establishing Additional Emirates | Daily Report Nigeria

Kano State’s House of Assembly has repealed the 2019 law that established four additional emirates – Bichi, Gaya, Karaye, and Rano – in the state.

The repeal occurred during a special plenary session presided over by Speaker Jibril Falgore, with tight security measures in place.

Falgore invoked a House rule to expedite the third reading of the repeal bill, which was then presented by Clerk Bashir Diso.

Deputy Speaker Muhammad Butu-Butu explained that repealing the law would restore Kano State’s lost prestige, as the division of the Kano Emirate into five had diminished its national standing.

Majority Leader Lawan Hussaini added that the Emirate Council was crucial for preserving Kano’s cultural heritage, which was compromised by the creation of additional emirates.

According to Commissioner Dala, the repeal means all five emirate councils are abolished, and the Commissioner for Local Government will oversee their activities.

Dala deemed the repeal timely and urged that the decision be communicated to Governor Abba Yusuf for final approval.

However, opposition members led by Minority Whip Ayuba Labaran (Kabo-APC) opposed the repeal and walked out of the chamber, citing selfish interests behind the move.

Labaran argued that the previous administration created the emirates to promote unity and development, which had indeed brought socioeconomic progress to the area.

The Assembly also approved a motion to establish a new second-class emirate council in the state.
