The Kano house of assembly has passed a bill seeking the creation of four additional emirates in the state.

The bill, which was recently transmitted to the assembly by Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of the state, was passed on Thursday.

The creation of the emirates is believed to be targeted at Muhammadu Sanusi II, emir of Kano, who reportedly opposed the reelection of Ganduje.

The governor had created the new emirates — Bichi, Gaya, Rano and Karaye – but a high court in the state nullified the action.

Labaran Abdul-Madari, a member of the assembly, said the establishment of the new emirates is to promote development at the grassroots.

He said the new law will provide for a state council of chiefs, where chairmanship will be rotated every two years among the five emirs in the state.

The emirs of the four emirates are Aminu Ado Bayero (Bichi), Ibrahim Gaya (Gaya), Tafida Ila (Rano), and Ibrahim Abukakar (Karaye).
