Penpushing further reports that it is recalled that the Kano State House of Assembly on Thursday passed a bill for the dissolution of the five emirates created by the administration of former governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

The Governor, Abba Yusuf, 24-hours after, signed the law and abolished the emirates of Gaya, Karaye, Rano and Bichi, dethroned Aminu Ado Bayero as the emir of Kano and subsequently reinstated Lamido Sanusi, as the emir.

Penpushing reports that the dethroned emir, however, rejected his removal, citing the order of the federal high court, while a title holder in Kano Emirate, Aminu Dan’agundi, approached the court challenging the scrapping of the emirates and reinstatement of Sanusi.
