Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has assented the bill seeking the establishment of four additional first-class Emirates in Kano State.

Earlier, the Kano State House of Assembly had passed the bill for the creation of four additional first-class Emirates to be situated in Rano, Gaya, Karaya and Bichi.

This follows the approval of the amendment of the local government and chieftaincy affairs law by the lawmakers, during their sitting on Wednesday

In a motion presented to the House by the Majority Leader Baffa Babba, the House unanimously agreed that creation of more Emirates will assist in job creation, dispute, and community conflict resolutions among others.

The passage of this bill paves way for the decentralisation of the Kano Emirate council thereby decentralizing the power of Emir of Kano.
