Impact of the Law

The law has abrogated the establishment of five 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 All offices established under the repealed law have been set aside by the new bill.

Also, all district heads elevated or appointed under the repealed law are to revert to their previous positions.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 new law is set to abrogate the creation of five emirates done by the former administration of Abdullahi Ganduje in 2019 and the restoration of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as the Emir of Kano Emirate.

What People Are Saying

The move could pave the way for the return of the deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II.

Also in January 2024, Former Kano governor and the leader of the Kwankwasiyya movement, Sen. Rabi’u Kwankwaso, said that the issue of the Kano emirates would be revisited.

Following the victory of the New Nigerian Peoples Party in last year’s election, Kwankwaso had said the government of Abba Kabir Yusuf would review the dethronement and balkanisation of the emirate.
