Kano State House of Assembly has passed the Emirate Councils Amendment Bill 2020.
Speaker of the house, Abdulazeez Gafasa, presided over the plenary as lawmakers adopted the amendment on Tuesday.
The House had in 2019 approved the creation of four additional Emirates.
The new councils are Gaya, Karaye, Rano and Bichi.
With the existing Kano Emirate Council, the number of First Class Emirs are now five.
Majority Leader, Kabiru Dashi said the amendment made provisions for the Emir of Kano, to serve as Chairman of the Joint Council.
“In the new law, the number of kingmakers has also increased from four to five members, to allow for a free and fair election of a new emir whenever there is a vacancy”, NAN quoted him as saying.
“We have four kingmakers in each of the Emirate Councils, in the case of death or removal. We are trying to avoid a situation where two will support and two will reject.”
The new law provides a three-day deadline for the election of a new emir.
Also, the Council of Chiefs will henceforth be known as Council of Emirs.
However, the House approved the appointment of Garba Shehu, as Executive Secretary, Kano State Education Development Support Fund.
