New Emirs In Kano: Court, Again, Stops Gov Ganduje

A High Court in Kano has again, granted an interim injunction to stop the Kano State Government from constituting the new council of chiefs and appointing its members.
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje last week signed a new law in Kano approving the creation of four new emirates and the appointment of first-class emirs for each of them. The law also establishes the council of chiefs.
An earlier law passed by the Kano State House of Assembly at the behest of Governor Ganduje was invalidated by the court. The new law was presented to the House of Assembly and passed into law within three days last week.
And today, December 10, the judge, Ahmed Badamosi, ordered a stoppage of the council of chiefs. He also granted an order restraining Mr Ganduje from taking away the functions and powers of the applicants.
He then adjourned the case to December 17.
The plaintiffs in the suit are Kano kingmakers headed by the Madakin Kano, Yusuf Nabahani, and Muktar Adnan.
The defendants are the Speaker of the Kano State House of Assembly as the first respondent, Kano State House of Assembly as the second respondent, Governor of Kano State as third respondent, Attorney General of Kano State as fourth respondent and the four newly appointed emirs of Rano, Karaye, Gaya and Bichi.
