Kano emirate kingmakers lose bid to stop emergence of new Emirs




Emir Sanusi

A Kano High Court Friday rejected an application filed by four Kano emirate king makers, seeking the court to restrain the four newly installed emirs of Bichi, Karaye, Rano and Gaya from parading themselves as emirs.

The plaintiffs, through their counsel, Suraj Saad (SAN) also prayed to the court to stop Governor Abdullahi Ganduje from recognising the new emirs and taking further actions on their appointment.

In his ruling on the application,  the presiding judge Justice Ahmed Badamasi dismissed the application, saying it lacks merit in its entirety.

He then adjourned the matter to June 27 for hearing.

Blueprint recalls that, following the appointment of the four new emirs recently, the plaintiff filed a motion on notice to the state High Court, asking it to stop  Ganduje and the state House of Assembly from recognising the emirs.

The motion also asked the court to restrain the newly appointed emirs from parading themselves as emirs.

But in his ruling, Mr Badamasi ordered that status quo be maintained pending the ruling on the application on June 14 (today).

The plaintiffs in the suit are Madakin Kano, district head of Dawakintofa, Yusuf Nabahani; Makaman Kano, district head of Wudil, Abdullahi Sarki-Ibrahim; Sarkin Dawaki Mai Tuta, district head of Gabasawa, Bello Abubakar and Sarkin Ban Kano, district head of Dambatta, Mukhtar Adnan.

, other defendants include new emirs; Tafida Abubakar-Ila, Ibrahim Abdulkadir, Ibrahim Abubakar ll, and Aminu Ado-Bayero and the Attorney General of the state, Ibrahim Mukhtar.
