INEC told to conduct election to end Kano Emirship war


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been advised to conduct an election to put an end to the Emirship tussle in Kano State.

Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani gave the advice on his X page.

Recall that the court on Thursday invalidated the Kano Emirate Council (Amendment No. 2) Law, 2024, which had dissolved four out of the five emirate councils in the state and removed all five emirs, including Aminu Ado-Bayero of Kano, last month.

Judge Abdullahi Liman ruled that the appointment of Mr. Sanusi as the Kano emir was null and void because the government did not comply with a court order prohibiting further action on the new emirate council law.

The judge criticized Governor Yusuf’s speech during the presentation of Mr. Sanusi’s reappointment letter, calling it a path to anarchy.

He stated that if a court order cannot be respected despite evidence of its service, the government is heading towards chaos.

Reacting to the development, Shehu Sani suggested that INEC intervenes in the matter.

He wrote:

“INEC should just be invited to conduct election for the two contending Emirs,I can volunteer to serve as the returning officer.Bivas can be used”.

@Ebukanwafor tweeted: “INEC will still do the magic of 2023 in the election. Why are they afraid of Sanusi?”.

@Haliduumar stated: “That’s against the law of emirate council, that’s never done.”

@Ournigerdelta said: “Do you think INEC still has that level of integrity and credibility. Many would rather INEC is not involved. Pipu no dey too rate dem again”.

@DoctorKay wrote: “The emirate is not under the purview of the federal Law even if an election is to be conducted it will be by the Kano State Electoral com. That’s even after the current Kano State Emirate Est. Law has been amended to substitute the mode of ascension from selection to an Election”
