According to some of them, the reconciliation is in the best interest of peace in the state and the nation.

Dr Abba Ahmed, a retired civil servant in the state, said the reconciliation provided much relief to many residents.

“I have been tensed since the issue started, especially that I live close to the Emirate where people have developed a high sentiment over the situation.”

He explained that the situation was one of the few bad things that could happen to Kano, thus commended Dangote’s committee for the action.

“Kano has indeed become a centre for democracy not only in the North but in the whole country and many states look up to it for new political strategies.

“It’s also a hub for traditional influence where the Emirate plays a vital role in global affairs, while the Emir himself has attracted global attention, ” he said.

Malam Muhammad Ahmad, a businessman, said the reconciliation has saved Kano from shame because of so many uncertainties that could arise if the whole process had continued.

Four Kano New Emirs Asked To Resign For Peace To Reign|The Republican News

Kano state governor, Ganduje and the four new Emirs of the new Emirates he created

Tension is currently mounting in Kano as no fewer than70 prominent indigenes of Kano State and 22 Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) have charged all newly appointed emirs to resign their appointments with immediate effect. They have been told to resign in the interest of peace and tranquillity in Kano.


Igbere TV gathered that the concerned individuals and groups have sought the urgent intervention of the Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence, Alhaji Mohammad Sa’ad Abubakar and denounce the creation of additional emirates in Kano.


Igbere TV recalls that Governor Abdullahi Ganduje had signed the Appointment and Deposition Act. 2019, which paved ways for Balkanisation of the Kano Emirate council into four.


Subsequently, four new emirs were appointed for Rano, Gaya, Bichi and Karaye, with the first-class status.


But speaking at a media briefing yesterday on behalf of The Renaissance Coalition in collaboration with the CSOs and other stakeholders, Comrade Abdulrahman Baffa Yola, asked Governor Ganduje to rather dissipate his energy towards tackling the socio-economic and development challenges in Kano.


Besides, he lamented the hasty passage of the Appointment and Deposition Act, 2019, which lasted only 48 hours and without due legislative process.
“Kano State has over two million Almajiris roaming the streets, without any tangible and sustainable intervention to checkmate the ugly situation.
“Kano leads in substance and drugs abuse, we have the highest number of school dropouts and congested classrooms in the country, with over 150–200 pupils in one class,” he stated.


Abdulrahman also urged Ganduje to tackle unemployment and provide jobs for the 3.5 million unemployed youths in Kano and provide education for the over two million girls who do not attend formal school in Kano.
He also enjoined the governor to provide potable water for the over five million people who do not have access to clean drinking water and delist Kano from the list of states with the highest maternal mortality rate in Nigeria and not the creation of new Emirates.


Igbere TV reports that another member of the coalition, Barrister Saida Sa’ad, accused the State House of Assembly of violating legislative process and giving undue attention to what she described as an unpopular bill.

It will impact on the economy and it will impact on the security, it means so many things will change.”
