A Kano State high court presided over by Justice Ahmed Tijjani Badamosi has dismissed Kano kingmakers suit challenging the creation of four new Emirates and appointment of first-class Emir’s.

Radio Nigeria report that the four Kingmakers that instituted the suit are Madakin Kano, District head of Dawakintofa, Yusuf Nabahani; Makaman Kano, District head of Wudil, Abdullahi Sarki-Ibrahim; Sarkin Dawaki Mai Tuta, District head of Gabasawa, Bello Abubakar and Sarkin Ban Kano, District head of Dambatta, Mukhtar Adnan.

The defendants in the suit are Kano State Government, the Governor, the Speaker of the Kano House of Assembly, the Kano House of Assembly and the Attorney General of Kano State.

Also included are the new emirs: Emir of Bichi, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero; Emir of Karaye, Alhaji Ibrahim Abubakar; Emir of Rano, Alhaji Tafida Abubakar and Emir of Gaya, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdulkadir.

At the resumption of the trial on Monday, Justice Ahmed Tijjani Badamosi in his ruling said the suit has been overtaken by the event as the law creating the emirates has been quashed with the judgment of Justice Usman Na’aba on November 21 that nullified the creation of the emirates.

Reacting to the judgement, Counsel for the plaintiffs Barr Sagir Gezawa said they would study the ruling and consult before taking the next action.

Meanwhile, the defence Counsel, Barr Ibrahim Muktar expressed happiness over the ruling noting that they were not surprised with the judgement.
