Court restrains Governor Ganduje from reducing Emir Sanusi’s powers
The Kano State High Court has granted an order restraining Governor Abdullahi Ganduje from implementing the establishment of four more emirates
The governor had signed a bill into law on Wednesday, May 8 which created additional first class emirates.
The move has been perceived as an attempt by Governor Ganduje to reduce the power of Emir Lamido Sanusi and curb his influence.
According to Premium Times, two members of the House of Representatives in Kano on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party said they received a court order on Friday, May 10 against the new emirates.
The lawmakers said the “House was not properly convened before the law was hurriedly passed on Wednesday.”
