Governor Abdullahi Ganduje's bid for the creation of four more emirates in Kano has passed the first reading at the state House of Assembly.

Earlier, Legit.ng gathered that the appointment and creation of four additional emirates in Kano state was on Thursday, November 21, nullified by a state high court.
Delivering the verdict, Justice Usman Na’abba, the presiding judge, declared the creation of the four emirates did not follow due process.
Moreover, Legit.ng gathered that Ganduje had sent a new bill for the creation of four new emirates in Kano state.
According to the commissioner of information in the state, Muhammad Garba, Ganduje is insisting on the creation of the emirates because some of them exited before the Kano emirate.

The council had sent its decision for the creation of the emirates to the state House of Assembly for final approval.
Garba said that the creation of the bill will bring about socio-economic development to the people and security in the state.
