Ganduje, who spoke at a ceremony organized by the newly appointed Emirs for the four Emirates in Kano said that the new law had already been gazetted by the state government printer on the same day.
The governor said that the creation of the emirates, in all its ramification, was well rooted in a strong foundation, adding that the law now is irreversible.
The governor also gave reasons for the creation of the new emirates in the state, saying that Kano is too big in size and population to have a single, centralised emirate council.
“The challenges of development are too many, they are too weighty to be left in the hands of a highly-centralised traditional institution,” said the governor.
He said that historically, Kano’s traditional rulers had been independent of one another, noting that the government took this factor into consideration.
He appealed to the new traditional rulers to assist the government in addressing the issues of education, health care delivery, security and agriculture in their various domains.
He tasked them to take records of strangers and new comers in their midst, to ensure that every child in their domain attends a school, to push their people to devote themselves to commercial agriculture as well as to ensure that their people take due advantages of the health facilities in their domains.
The governor asked the people to support the new dispensation even as he directed all the district heads and Ulamas in their respective domains to go and pay homage to the new monarchs by Monday.
In his appreciation, the new Emir of Bichi, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, pledged his determination to serve the people of his emirate, while promising to continue with the legacy of his father.
He called on the people in his domain to support the government of Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje to achieve its objectives of serving the people.
Similarly the new Emir of Rano, (Sarkin Rano) Alhaji Tafide Abubakar Il, said that they are ready to work and cooperate with Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi in the Council of Traditional Rulers in the state while assuring that the new emirs would continue to give their support to the Ganduje’s administration towards the realisation of its goals.
The Emir of Gaya, (Sarkin Gaya), Alhaji Abdulkadir Gaya, said that he would prioritise the fight against drug abuse among youths in his domain.
