Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State, was on Monday, shown where tradigional powers lies, when 11 district heads whose territories fall under the new emirates created by him, practically dared him, and pitched their tents with embattled Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi.

The governor, had directed that the district heads remained in their domains within the sallah period and participate in the traditional durbar ceremonies to be hosted by their newly appointed “emirs” or face dire consequences.

However, this was largely ignored as the affected traditional leaders, made their way to Sanusi’s palace Monday evening to take part in the Kano edition of Hawan Daushe.

Ganduje’s directive was issued in response to an order by Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II inviting District Heads from all 44 local governments in Kano to attend the Hawan Daushe in Kano city.

A statement by his Chief Press Secretary Abba Anwar  directed the district heads not to obey Emir Sanusi’s invitation.

The statement further ordered only district heads under the jurisdiction of the Kano Emirate should attend the Hawan Daushe at Kano while district heads in the four new emirates created by the Ganduje administration should attend the Durbar at their respective emirate capitals.

But the district heads were in Kano on Monday for the festival.

Those who attended include Madakin Kano Yusuf Nabahani of Dawakin Tofa, Dan Amar Aliyu Harizimi Umar of Doguwa, Dokaji Muhammadu Aliyu of Garko, Makama Sarki Ibrahim of Wudil, Sarkin Fulanin Ja’idinawa Buhari Muhammad of Garun Malam, and Barde Idris Bayero of Bichi.

Others were Sarkin Bai Mukhtar Adnan of Danbatta, Yarima Lamido Abubakar of Takai, Dan Isa Kabiru Hashim of Warawa, Dan Madami Ibrahim Hamza Bayero of Kiru, and Sarkin Dawaki Mai Tuta Bello Abubakar of Gabasawa.

The district heads’ defiance is in continuation of the running battle between Ganduje and Emir Sanusi II.

The Ganduje administration is accusing the Emir of supporting its political opponents, an allegation the monarch has always denied.

Ganduje had attempted deposing the Emir but some influential citizens had intervened to stop the move.

In May 2019, Ganduje split the Kano Emirate into five kingdoms and appointed four first -class emirs for the the new emirates.

34 local government areas were excised from the Kano Emirate, leaving only Kano Municipal, Dala, Tarauni, Nassarawa, Fagge, Dala, Kumbotso, Ungoggo, Dawakin Kudu and Minjibir under the jurisdiction of Emir Sanusi II.

Emir of Rano, Tafida Abubakar also heads 10 local governments – Rano, Bunkure, Kibiya, Takai, Sumaila, Kura, Doguwa, Tudun Wada, Kiru, and Bebeji.

Bichi Emirate headed by Emir Aminu Ado Bayero has nine local governments – Bichi, Bagwai, Shanono, Tsanyawa, Kunchi, Makoda, Danbatta, Dawakin Tofa, and Tofa.

Gaya Emirate under Emir Ibrahim Abdulkadir comprises of eight local governments – Gaya, Ajingi, Albasu, Wudil, Garko, Warawa, Gezawa, and Gabasawa.

Karaye Emirate led by Emir Ibrahim Abubakar II has seven local governments – Karaye, Rogo, Gwarzo, Kabo, Rimin Gado, Madobi, and On Saturday, the Emir of Gaya, Ibrahim Abdulkadir, suspended Sarki Ibrahim (District head of Wudil), Bello Abubakar (District Head of Gabasawa), Kabiru Hashim (District Head of Warawa), Yusuf Bayero (District Head of Dawakinkudu) and Muhammad Aliyu (District Head of Garko) for allegedly disobeying a series of directives by the emirate council.
