The Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, on Monday appointed the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, as the Chairman of Kano State Council of Chiefs, Premium Times reports.
According to the online news medium, the appointment was contained in a statement signed by the governor’s spokesperson, Abba Anwar.
Mr. Anwar said the new appointee, Mr Sanusi, would head the state’s council of chiefs while the newly appointed emirs would serve as members.
“It is also directed that the Chairman shall immediately summon the inaugural meeting of the Council in accordance with the provisions of the Law,” Mr Anwar said.
Mr Ganduje had last week explained that the headship of the Kano State Council of Chiefs would be rotational among the emirs in the state.
Mr Ganduje insisted on creating the new emirates despite public criticism that his intention was to reduce the influence of Mr Sanusi who has been critical of his administration.
He added that the development would bring traditional institutions closer to the people in facilitating speedy development and security in the state.
However, Mr Ganduje while assenting to the law creating the emirate said the creation of the four new emirates is a response to age long and popular demand of people of the state. He said his action was guided by the calls received from across the 44 local government areas in the state for the need of new emirates.
