The Commissioner for Information in Kano State, Comrade Mohammed Garba, has offered explanations as to why the Governor of the State, Abdullahi Ganduje, fell apart with the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II.
He also explained the vision that informed the creation of additional emirate councils in the state in an interview with Sun.
Garba said that the revered monarch got involved in partisan politics contrary to the tradition of the throne.
According to him, “What happened actually as a result of the creation of the new emirates.. you should remember that it was not the governor that initiated the petition. It was a group of lawyers who felt that there was the need for them to have additional emirate in their own area.
“And they wrote to the Kano State House of Assembly and the State House of Assembly, from the information available to us, read the petition or whatever submission that was submitted to them and they felt that all the issues raised by the concerned citizens and lawyers are serious issues that should be looked into.
