This development is coming amidst calls for the return of the deposed Emir Sanusi, Daily Trust reports.

Gandjue signed a controversial Bill into law in 2020 dividing the emirate into five different emirates with the creation of Rano, Karaye, Gaya and Bichi Emirates, and the appointment of First Class Emirs for the new emirates, Leadership reports.

It eventually culminated in the deposition of the then Emir of Kano.

The New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP), presidential candidate, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, had promised that Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf would review the issue of the emirates.

“Apart from the issue of changing the emir, the emirates have now been divided into five. All of that will be reviewed too. When a leader comes into power whether in a country, state or local government area, he inherits things that are good and things that are difficult and challenging."
