The Kano State House of Assembly has repealed the Kano Emirates Council Law 2019, thereby dissolving the Emirates of Bichi, Gaya, Karaye and Rano.

Daily News reports that the Assembly repealed the Emirates Law on Thursday during its plenary session amidst tight security.

The law has abrogated establishment of 5 new Emirates in the state.

All offices established under the repealed law have been set aside by the new bill.

Also all district heads elevated or appointed under the repealed law are to revert to their previous positions.

The Kano State Emirates Council (Amendment number 2) Law, 2024, was sponsored by the Majority Leader and member representing the Dala Constituency, Lawan Hussaini Chediyar Yan Gurasa.

It is understood that the assembly is expected to submit the decision to Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf for assent.

There are speculations that the dissolution of the four Emirates was done to pave way for the return of deposed 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi.

Already, the current Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayeo and his Bichi counterpart Nasiru Ado Bayero have travelled out of the state.

Recall that Mr Sanusi was dethroned in March 2020 by former governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, following a protracted political dispute.

Mr Ganduje had then created the four new Emirates to reduce the influence of the Once powerful Kano Emirate.
