A High Court sitting in Kano on Friday stopped Governor Abdullahi Ganduje from implementing the decentralisation of Kano Emirate.

Ganduje had on Wednesday signed into a law a bill creating four additional emirates in the state.

The court also stopped the Kano State House of Assembly and the attorney-general of the state from recognising the new four emirates.

An exparte motion, dated May 10, 2019, and filed by one Hon Sule Gwarzo, before Justice Nasiru Saminu, had asked the court to restrain the respondents from taking any action of creating four additional emirates.

In an order of interim injunction, the court directed all parties in this suit to maintain status quo, pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

The move has been widely viewed as a move aimed at reducing the influence of the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi.

Meanwhile, Ganduje has defended his decision to create four additional emirates in the state, denying accusations that the aim is to ridicule the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II.

Ganduje insisted there was no vendetta against the former Central Bank of Nigeria governor, but the latest move was meant to bring the traditional institution into full participation in governance.
