Ganduje signs new Emirate Bill into law

Few hours after the passage of the Executive Bill sent to the Kano State House of Assembly for the creation of four more Emirates in the State, Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State has signed the Bill into law.
The Bill, which was sent to the House on Monday by the State Executive Council, was read for the third time on Thursday morning and passed into law with very little alteration.
After signing the Bill into law, Governor Ganduje apparently referring to Emir Sanusi, said, we are going to have the Chairman of the five Kano Emirs, who would be reconvening meetings. And anybody who is absent among the five Emirs for five consecutive times risk been disposed.”.
The ceremony, which was done at Coronation Hall, Government House, Kano, now paved way for having five Emirates in the state, according to the Governor.
Ganduje observed that the previous law which was challenged in the court was been sponsored by private hands, not his Government, adding that it was out of respect, though not satisfied with that, the State decided to the need for sponsoring another Bill by the Executive, just as we did now”..
“As a law-abiding administration, we came and deliberated upon that at the State Executive Council, after which we sent the Bill to the State House of Assembly, seeking for the creation of the 4 additional emirates’, he stated. 
All things concerning the new emirates were done, according to the governor, to bring development closer to the people”.
The law provides that there will be individual Emirate Council in all the new 5 emirates. 
It was gathered that the only amendment to the Bill is in Section 12, which the legislators inserted a proviso that the governor must seek their approval before grading the emirs first, second and third-class.
