Despite Thursday’s court judgement voiding their recent appointments by the Governor Umar Ganduje’s administration, the Kano State Government has said it still recognizes the Emirs and their Emirates.

In a statement signed by the state Commissioner of Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, the Government said it was studying the ruling of Kano High Court on the creation of four new Emirates in the state with a view to taking immediate appropriate action.

The statement regretted that despite the constitutional power and authority conferred on the State Assembly on such progressive and important issue, the court rules otherwise.

Accordingly therefore, the statement adds, the Government will not fold its arms and concedes such constitutional power in the interest of the wellbeing of the people and general development of the state.

Malam Garba says despite the ruling, the government still recognizes them as First Class Emirs and will continue dealing with them as such.

The state government advised people to be calm, law abiding and await further action.
