Gov. Ganduje installs new emirs, says court restraining order belated (Photos)


Kano state governor Abdullahi Ganduje has installed the new appointed emirs of Rano, Karaye, Gaya and Bichi emirates.

The Kano state government says the governor had presented appointment letters to the new emirs before the state high court issued a restraining order.


In a statement released on Saturday, Ganduje said the new emirs had received appointment letters and acknowledged receipt before the restraining order was issued.

After the state assembly passed a bill to break up the emirate in the state, Ganduje appointed four new emirs for the emirate.



The statement signed by Abba Anwar, chief press secretary to Ganduje, said the court order was issued around 5pm on Friday, May 10, after letters of appointment dated May 9, with reference number SSG/REPA/5/A/86/T were sent to the new emirs.

It explained that Ibrahim Abubakar II, the new emir of Karaye, forwarded his acceptance letter at about 12 noon on Friday, while Tafida Abubakar Il, his Rano counterpart, accepted around 10:15 am.

Aminu Ado Bayero, the emir of Bichi, and Ibrahim Abdulkadir, the emir of Gaya, accepted the appointment at 10am and 10:30am respectively.

“Letters of the notification of appointment were written from the office of the secretary to the state government, Alhaji Usman Alhaji, since Thursday, May 9, 2019, and were dispatched to the concerned emirs the following day Friday, May 10, 2019, in the very early hours of the day.”
