Kwankwaso Vows to Revisit Kano Emirates Issue

In a resolute declaration, Rabiu Kwankwaso, former governor of Kano State and leader of the Kwankwasiyya Movement, has affirmed his commitment to revisiting the contentious issue of the creation of new emirates in Kano State. The matter, initiated by former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s decision to split the historic Kano Emirate into five separate entities, is set to undergo a thorough reassessment under the administration of Governor Abba Yusuf, following the recent victory of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP).

Former Governor Ganduje’s move, which involved the establishment of Gaya, Bichi, Rano, and Karaye Emirates, each carved out of the traditional Kano Emirate, was accompanied by the dethronement of the 14th Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi. With the political landscape undergoing a shift, Kwankwaso expressed confidence that the new administration would critically review the actions of its predecessor.

Speaking during a live interview on multiple local radio stations in Kano, Kwankwaso reiterated his commitment to addressing the “dethronement and balkanisation of the Kano Emirate.” He assured the public that the issue would be thoroughly examined, stating, “Whether it’s going to be allowed, restructured, or whatever, it will definitely be revisited.” Kwankwaso acknowledged the potential complexities surrounding the issue but emphasized that the decisions made by the previous administration were not executed with good intentions.

Despite not being officially consulted on the matter, Kwankwaso reassured the public that discussions would be held to determine the appropriate course of action. He acknowledged the intricacies of the situation, stating, “There are a lot of things involved, and this might even be a trap, who knows?”

In recent times, there have been growing calls within the state for the removal of the newly appointed Emirs, a change in the established order, and the reinstatement of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as the 14th Emir of Kano. Supporters expressing their sentiments during a rally at Fili Mahaha repeatedly chanted, “Sabon Gwamna! Sabon Sarki!” (New Governor! New Emir!), underscoring the urgency felt by the public on this matter.

Kwankwaso, addressing various political issues during his extensive speech, also opened the door for discussions on the possibility of NNPP merging with other political parties. He assured that the party remains open to dialogue with interested parties where necessary.
