The APC Publicity Secretary in Kano state, Alhaji Ahmad Aruwa, said the call by a group, Yan Dangwalen Jihar Kano (the Kano Electorate), urging the state assembly to dissolve the new emirates and reinstate dethrone emir, Lamido Sanusi, might upset the peace of the state.

Former governor Abdullahi Ganduje created four new emirates in 2019 and subsequently dethroned Sanusi, in March 2020.
