“Kano new emirates have come to stay” — Ganduje fires back at Kwankwaso

The Governor of Kano state, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has vigorously defended the creation of four new emirates in the state, stating that they are here to stay.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that this comes in response to comments made by former governor Rabiu Kwankwaso, who suggested that the incoming government of Engr Abba Kabir Yusuf would review the dethronement and splitting of the Kano emirates.

Speaking at the Workers’ Day celebrations at Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano, Ganduje declared that God will not bring anyone who will destroy the newly created emirates, emphasising that they symbolise unity, progress, and well-being of the people.

The governor had previously split the Kano emirates into five, leading to the dethronement of the then-Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi.

Despite Kwankwaso’s comments, Ganduje remains firm in his decision to create the four new emirates, stating that it is a move towards development and progress in the state.

He dismissed the suggestion that politics would reverse the creation of the new emirates, stating that they were here to stay.

He said: “Any of you that visits the headquarters of these new emirates will believe me that we have brought development to these places. These emirates were created for unity, progress, history, and the recovery of the reputation of the traditional institutions. We created them to honor the people of these regions.”

“I want to assure you that these emirates are permanent, they have come to stay. And anybody that will destroy them, God Almighty will not bring him to Kano state. We assure you that these emirates were created because of you, because of your progress.

“Even if we are not in government, we are praying and we will keep praying for God to protect these emirates from all evils. I thank you all,” Ganduje said.
