BREAKING: Heavy Security As Kano Emirates Council Law Scales First Reading

Wed, 22 May 2024


Armed security operatives from the police and Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) took over strategic places at Kano House of Assembly, on Wednesday, as the lawmakers commenced the amendment of the State Emirates Council law that created five Emirates.

The amendment of the Kano state emirates council (Amendment number 2) law 2024 (1445AH) sponsored by the majority leader and member representing Dala constituency, Lawan Hussaini Chediyar Yan Gurasa, scaled first reading.

Journalists who came to cover the day’s proceeding were asked to identify themselves before they were allowed entry while all roads leading to the assembly complex were barricaded.

The Kano state emirates council law 2019 which created five new Emirates was first assented to by the ex-Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, on December 5, 2019.

The governor assented to an amendment to the law in 14 October, 2020, and signed another amendment on 11 April 2023.

Section 3(1) of the law established 5 distinct Emirates of Kano, Bichi, Rano, Gaya and Karaye with Kano and Karaye having 8 local government areas of jurisdiction each, while Bichi and Gaya Emirates share 9 local government areas of jurisdiction each, Rano emirate enjoys jurisdiction over 10 local government areas out of the 44 local councils in the state.

Section 4 of the law established the state council of chiefs membership of which include the 5 emirs, secretary to the state government, commissioner for local governments and 5 chairmen with one each from the Emirates as well as 10 kingmakers and representatives from the business community and the security agencies and not more than two appointees by the governor.

Section 5 provides for chairmanship of the council of chiefs which shall rotational among the emirs.

When emir Muhammad Sanusi,who chaired the council, was deposed on March 9, 2020, the law was amended to read ” there shall be the chairman of the council whom shall be the emir, Kano emirate”.

Section 10 provides that the council shall perform the functions assigned to it by the governor and shall have the power to appoint district, village and ward heads and can suspend or dismiss same.

Section 11 provides that ” upon death or resignation or deposition of any emir the governor may in consultation with the council of chiefs appoint a successor of such emir out of persons nominated in that behalf by the kingmakers of the affected emirate”.

The law also states that where the kingmakers failed to nominate a successor within 3 days the governor may himself appoint such person from the heirs to the throne as he may deem fit.

Section 12 provides that the governor may grade the office of an emir first, second, third class subject to the approval of the state house of assembly.

Section 13 provides that the governor, after due inquiry and consultation with council of chiefs, may depose of such emir if he is satisfied that deposition is required in accordance with tradition or where the emir intentionally fails to attend meetings of the council for 3 consecutive days without valid excuse or he commits act of gross misconduct or abuse of office or immorality.

A principal officer of the Assembly, who does not want his name mentioned, said no Jupiter can stop the assembly from amending the law.

“We were ready for this longtime ago and Only God can stop this amendment. We wanted all these emirs to go 20 days after this administration was inaugurated but here we are. So tomorrow(Thursday) there would be special session of the assembly to consider and pass the amendment”, the lawmaker said.

However, minority of the assembly Abdul Labaran Madari has told BBC Hausa that 12 APC members in the assembly are now opposed to the amendment provided none of the 5 Emirates would be dissolved and the emir of Kano Aminu Ado Bayero should not be deposed and replaced with Muhammad Sanusi.

He said though the NNPP lawmakers in the assembly have the numbers to effect the amendment, the opposition members would ventilate their opposition.

Madari said the ruling party had perfected its plan to dissolve Bichi emirate as well as reinstate depose emir Sanusi. The other Emirates, he said, would left with 3 local government areas of jurisdiction each.

The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, is scheduled to pay a visit to the Awujale and paramount ruler of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Kayode Adetona, in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State today.

The emir shared this information in a letter labeled 'Announcement of Our Trip to Ijebu Ode Kingdom'.

The letter, personally signed by the Emir of Kano, stated that the purpose of the visit was to show "respect to His Majesty and enhance the longstanding warm relationship between the Awujale of Ijebu-land and our late father, the revered Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, may he rest in peace.

“At the same time, we will seize the opportunity to felicitate His Majesty for attaining the age of 90 years, as well as being on the throne for 64 years.”

Meanwhile, the 14th Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, is scheduled to be the keynote speaker today at the Rivers State Economic & Investment Summit.

It'd be a show of very high political astuteness and dexterity if this governor succeeds in bringing Sanusi back as emir.

The Big question is :

Since the Emirates is now split into 5 division, what will be the fate of the present Emirs of the 5 divisions?

Will Sanusi lamido be re-enthrone as Emir of a division or as Emir of A unified Kano?

This bill needs to be explained in detail for clarification.
