Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has debunked insinuations that he is trying to reduce the power of the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II.

This is as the Governor on Wednesday, approved the creation of four additional emirates in the state, fueling thoughts that he is targetting Sanusi’s dominance

Speaking on the reason for his decision, Ganduje said it was to bring the traditional institution to be more involved in developing the state and encouraging people’s participation.

Ganduje added that by constitutional provision, the emir ordinarily reports to a local government chairman, not the governor.

He spoke with State House correspondents in Abuja, Punch reports.

He also replied those saying that his action destroyed the heritage of the Kano State people, dating back 800 years, saying that such persons were entitled to their opinions.

On whether Sanusi was the target, he replied, “It is not vendetta, I am not against him.

“In fact, he is supposed to be reporting to the local government chairman according to the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“It is the local government chairman that he is supposed to discuss issues with not the governor.

“So, this is celebrated by the people of Kano State and we will make sure that the new emirate councils are effective in terms of developing Kano State.”

Naija News reports the Emirates freshly created include; Gaya, Rano, Karaye, and Bichi.
