Emir Sanusi: Ganduje reacts as court stops splitting of Kano Emirate

Kano State government, on Saturday reacted to reports that a High Court in Kano on Friday, stopped the State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, the Kano State House of Assembly, the Speaker, Clerk of the Assembly, including the Attorney-General and the State from implementing the splitting of the Kano Emirate.

DAILY POST had reported that the exparte motion dated May 10, 2019, was filed by the plaintiff, Hon. Sule Gwarzo, before Justice Nasiru Saminu, seeking the court to restrain the respondents from taking any action of creating four additional Emirates.

In an order of interim injunction, the Court directed all parties in this suit to maintain status quo, pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

But reacting, the State government in a statement issued on Saturday by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Abbar Anwar, said Governor Ganduje has not received the court order restraining him from further action concerning the newly appointed First Class Emirs of Rano, Karaye, Gaya and Bichi Emirates.

Anwar added that new emirs have been served with appointment letters before the Court Order.

The statement said the event “organised to have a symbolic presentation of Notification of Appointment Letters would still hold.”

The statement read, “The Kano state governor did not receive any court order restraining him from further action concerning the newly appointed First Class Emirs of Rano, Karaye, Gaya and Bichi Emirates.

“Letters of the Notification Appointment were written from the office of the Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Usman Alhaji, since Thursday 9th May, 2019 and were despatched to the concerned Emirs the following day Friday 10th May, 2019, in the very early hours of the day.

“In letters dated 9th May, 2019, with reference number SSG/REPA/5/A/86/T , to the newly appointed Emirs, each letter states that, “In accordance with the power conferred on the Governor by the Kano State Emirs (Appointment and Deposition) Amended Law 2019 (1440 AH) which provides the creation of more Emirates,
“ I wish to convey the approval of His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Kano State, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje OFR for your appointment as First Class Emir of (Bichi) (Karaye) (Rano) (Gaya) Emirate.”

“While the said court order pronouncement started after 5pm on Friday 10th May, 2019, all the Emirs returned back their acceptance from 10am to 12noon, same day. Hours before the court order pronouncement was made.

“The new Emir of Karaye, Alhaji Dr Ibrahim Abubakar II signed his acceptance by 12 noon, Emir of Rano Alhaji Tafida Abubakar Ila, signed his acceptance by 10:15 am, Emir of Bichi, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, signed his acceptance by 10am and the Emir of Gaya, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdulkadir, signed his letter by 10:30am.

“Today’s event, Saturday 11th May, 2019, planning to take place at Sani Abacha Indoor Stadium, Kofar Mata, was just organised to have a symbolic presentation of Notification of Appointment Letters.

“But with the new development, the Emirs would only thank the Governor during the Stadium event, for appointing them and serving them with their appointment letters since Friday morning of 10th May, 2019, through the office of the Secretary to the State Government.”
