The Kano Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has said the creation of more emirates in the state was not a “vendetta” against the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II.

Ganduje had recently signed a bill into law creating four more emirates in the state.

There have been reports that the creation of four emirates was aimed at whittling down the powers of Sanusi.

in spite of that, Ganduje has now explained that the decision to create four new emirates in the state was in order to take it to the next level and not against anybody.

The governor made the disclosure while addressing State House Correspondents on the sidelines of ongoing Progressive Governors’ Forum Award Ceremony holding at the State House conference centre, Abuja.

Ganduje said people condemning the decision are entitled to their own opinion but we are taking Kano to the next level and we need the active participation of the traditional system, especially in the areas of education, security, agriculture.

He said the emirate was balkanised because Kano State needs the effectiveness of the traditional rulers”.

As stated by Ganduje: By decentralising it, we are following history. Years back even before the 800 years you are referring to, the situation was not that.

So if something developed 800 years ago, things are also developing now and there will be another 800 years. So look at the history.

So, it is not vendetta, I am not against him. In fact, he is supposed to be reporting to the local government chairman As stated by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

It is the local government chairman that is supposed to discuss issues with him, not the governor.

“We will make sure that the new emirate councils are effective in terms of developing Kano State.
