The Kano State High Court has granted an order restraining Governor Abdullahi Ganduje from implementing the establishment of four more emirates.

The governor had signed a bill into law on Wednesday, May 8 which created additional first class emirates.

The move has been perceived as an attempt by Governor Ganduje to reduce the power of Emir Lamido Sanusi and curb his influence.

Premium Times had reported that, two members of the House of Representatives in Kano on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party said they received a court order on Friday, May 10 against the new emirates.

The lawmakers said the “House was not properly convened before the law was hurriedly passed on Wednesday.”

Comrade Frank specifically accused the governor of signing a political vendetta bill which he said is aimed at making the Kano Emirate under Sanusi irrelevant.
