The Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has said that the four new emirates created by his administration have come to stay.
Last week, the national leader of the New Nigerian Peoples Party, NNPP, Rabiu Kwankwaso, hinted that the incoming administration would review the dethronement of the former Emir Muhammad Sanusi II, and the splitting of the Emirate.
But while speaking during the 2023 Workers’ Day celebrations held at Sani Abacha Stadium, Kano, on Monday, Mr Ganduje said God would not bring anybody that will destroy the emirates.
According to him, the emirates symbolise progress, unity, and well-being of the Kano people.
Mr Ganduje said, “Any of you that visit the headquarters of these new emirates will believe me that we have brought development to these places.
“These emirates were created for unity, progress, history, and also for the recovery of the reputation of the traditional institutions. We created them to honour the people of these regions.
“I want to assure you that these emirates are permanent, they have come to stay. And anybody that will destroy them, God Almighty will not bring him to Kano state. We assure you that these emirates were created because of you, because of your progress.
“Even if we are not in government, we are praying and we will keep praying for God to protect these emirates from all evils. I thank you all,” he said.
