Kano State House of Assembly has dissolved all five emirate councils in the state, saying Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf has sold powers to appoint new Emirs/Emir.

This was a sequel to deliberations on the floor of the house during plenary, on Thursday.

The Kano State Emirate Council amendment bill was considered on the floor of the house after scaling second and third reading on Thursday morning.

Earlier, the Deputy Speaker, Alhaji Muhammad Bello Butu Butu explained that repealing the law would revive the lost glory of Kano as the division of Kano emirate to five reduced the capacity and dignity of the state at the national level.

The majority leader Alhaji Lawan Hussaini Dala that the emirate council served as a custodian of culture which was distorted by the creation of additional emirates.
