Kano state Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje on Saturday installed the four new Emirs of Rano, Bichi, Karaye and Gaya Emirates with a call to them to ensure development of education, health, security and agriculture in their respective emirates.
Ganduje who performed the installation before the Speaker of Kano state House of Assembly, Hon. Kabiru Alhasan Rurum and other top government officials, recalled that the new Emirs received their appointment letters and staff of office Friday, adding that their coronations have already been gazetted.
According to him, the new Emirates have come to stay, pointing out that the new Emirs had requested for the installation ceremony so that they can use the opportunity to appreciate Kano state House of Assembly, as well as the government and people of Kano state for the honour bestowed on them.
“The four newly appointed First Class traditional rulers requested for this occasion so that they can appreciate the Kano state government for this responsibility that has been given to them.
Meanwhile, Kano state government on Saturday declared that it is not aware of any Court order stopping it from issuing letters of appointment to the four Emirs of the newly created Emirates in Kano.
It was gathered that a Kano High Court sitting at Ungogo on Friday granted an order restraining Governor Abdullahi Ganduje from implementing any action to legitimize the new Emirates of Rano, Bichi, Gaya and Karaye.
The presiding Judge, Justice Nasiru Saminu, in a suit filed by one Rabiu Sule Gwarzo, gave an interim injunction directing all parties in the suit to maintain status quo pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.
