Kano State Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje yesterday assented to the long-awaited Emir’s Appointment and Deposition Amendment Law, 2019, at the 136th state council meeting.

The event was witnessed by the Speaker of the State Assembly and other principal officers.

The House of Assembly yesterday passed into law the Bill for the creation of four new emirates.

The proposed emirates, Rano, Gaya, Bichi and Karaye, are to be upgraded into first class status.

The bill was an amendment of the Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs Law 1984, to pave the way for the decentralisation of the Kano Emirate Council.
