Ganduje: Kingmakers Hire 7 SANs, 17 Other Lawyers To Battle Governor by ijustdey: 7:08am On May 15
Kano Kingmakers have employed the service of 7 Senior Advocates of Nigeria and 17 other lawyers to challenge governor, Abdullahi Ganduje and Kano House Assembly and others in court over the creation of more new Kano Emirates.

The Kingmakers namely Madakin Kano, Yusuf Nabahani; Makaman Kano, Sarki Ibrahim; Sarkin Dawaki Maituta, Bello Abubakar and Sarkin Bai, Mukhtar Adnan filed a suit on Tuesday at the state High Court against the Speaker of Kano State House of Assembly, Kano State House of Assembly, the Governor of Kano State, the Attorney General of Kano State and the four emirs appointed by the governor The names of the lawyers are Prince Lateef Fegbemi, SAN, FCIArb,(UK), AB Mahmoud, OON, SAN, FCIArb, (UK), Adeniyi Akintola, SAN, Suraj Sa’eda, SAN, Hakeem O. Afolabi, SAN, Paul Usoro SAN, Nassir Abdu Dangiri, SAN, Others are Maliki Kuliya Umar Esq, Nureini S. Jimoh Esq, Dr. Nasiru Aliyu Esq, Sagir Gezawa Esq, Muritala O. Abdulrasheq Esq, Aminu S. Gadanya Esq, Ismail Abdulaziz Esq, Rashidi Isamotu Esq, Oseni Sefullahi Esq, Ibrahim Abdullahi Esq, Haruna Saleh Zakariyya Esq, Auwal A. Dabo Esq, Badamasi Sulaiman Esq, O. O. Samuel Esq, Fariha Sani Abdullahi, Yahaya Isah Abdulrasheed, ACIArb, (UK) and Amira Hamisu.

According to one of the reliefs they sought, the kingmakers said 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. New Kano emirates: Why Court restrained Ganduje

The Kano State House of Assembly (KNHA), had last week approved the amendment of the Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs law, paving way for the decentralisation of the Kano Emirate council. The bill, known as Kano Emirs Appointment and Deposition Amendment Bill 2019 was promptly signed into law by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

It allows for the creation of four more first class emirs Rano, Karaye, Bichi and Gaya councils. The assembly embarked on its earlier plans to amend the law following a petition filed before the house by Ibrahim Chambers. The petitioner demanded for the upgrading of some traditional rulers to the status of 1st class emirs. Chambers in the petition sought for the creation of the four additional 1st class emirate councils in Karaye, Bichi, Rano and Gaya.

According to the petition, the establishment of the emirate councils will bring more development to the people of the area. The committee earlier set up by the assembly to look into the issue of reviewing the law presented its report before the legislators on Tuesday. Reading the joint committees report before the floor of the house last week Tuesday, the majority leader, Alhaji Baffa Danagundi, said the report also recommended the review of the law. According to him, the decision followed wide consultation with stakeholders, adding that the feedback the committee received from the public, massively supported the upgrade of those emirate councils. He said the response received clearly showed that the need to upgrade the traditional rulers was necessary.

According to Danagundi, the law if signed into law by the Governor of the state, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, the emirate council, except Bichi, will have their own kingmakers. He explained that the Bichi emirate council would have its Kingmakers from the old emirate council, Gidan Dabo in particular. According to Danagundi, the creation of the new first class emirs would bring more job opportunities, boost the economy, and ensure security of the state.

Governor Ganduje, who spoke immediately after signing the bill into law, said “this is what the people of Kano State want. “This will encourage active and deeper participation of people of Kano State especially in the rural communities in the affairs of the state. “It will also encourage active participation of traditional rulers in the areas of agriculture, education, health and security.” The governor also said that there was need to upgrade the traditional rulers based on their historical antecedents so that aspirations and dreams of their forefathers would come true. Ganduje added that all other processes for the take off of the new emirates would be completed while letters of appointment and dates of Coronation of the new first class emirs would be fixed.

The governor also signed six other bills into law. The bills are; Kano State Administration of Criminal Justice Law 2019, Kano State Public Health Law 2019 and Kano State Water and Sanitation Sector Reform Law 2019. Others are, Kano State College of Health Science and Technology Law 2019, Kano State Sharia Courts Amendment Law 2019, Kano State Pension and Rights of Governors and Deputy Law 2019 and Kano State Pension and Right of Speaker and Deputy Speaker Law 2019.

Next time Sanusi will learn to keep his mouth shut and not interfere with politics. How can a king that’s on state payroll want to change the governor of his state?

Jonathan should have done that to him ( cut him to pieces) but Jonathan was too weak a president and a leader and besides he’s clueless at everything.

Waste of time, money and energy.

They are only angry nobody is lobbying and bribing them for positions.

The governor cut through the noise, bureaucracy and fast tracked the entire thing.

There was a subsisting order from the courts, I think, stopping Ganduje. But he still went ahead to create and start these new Emirates. So the question isn’t getting 1,000 SANs. It is getting Ganduje to effect whatever the courts say. And, from indications, he won’t. He has learnt from Buhari or has blessings from Buhari.

There’s only one way Kano people can make him reverse his decision. There’s only one thing tyrants fear and listen to.
