Kano state Executive Council has approved Emirate Council Bill 2019 which provides for the establishment of additional Emirates in the state.
The bill to this effect has already been transmitted to Kano state House of Assembly.
The move follows a recent Court judgment that nullified the hitherto creation of new Emirates in Kano state.
To this end, the Council has, with this development, endorsed the establishment of four new Emirates namely Rano, Gaya, Bichi and Karaye and forward same to the state Assembly for necessary action.
A press statement issued by the Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba at the end of the Council Session indicates that some of these Emirate have even pre-dated Kano in ancient times, while the effort to revive them during the Second Republic was short-lived.
He said while the Council seriously discussed the decade long clamour for the establishment of additional Emirates in the state with a view to bringing more development to the people of the new Emirates, the exercise was also informed by the need to bring traditional institution closer to the people
