A Kano State High Court has fixed November 14 for judgement in the case over creation of four new emirates and appointment of three first class emirs by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

It would be recalled that former Minority Leader and Minority Whip of the Kano State House of Assembly, Alhaji Rabi’u Saleh Gwarzo and Alhaji Babangida Yusuf Sulaiman, challenged the creation of the four emirates.

The two lawmakers joined in the suit, Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, the then Speaker of the House of Assembly, Alhaji Kabiru Alhassan Rurum, the Attorney General, Barrister Ibrahim Mukhtar and the Kano State Printing Press.

When the case came up yesterday, counsel to the plaintiff, A.B Mahmoud filed an affidavit seeking amendment of the originating summon.

However, counsel to the former speaker, Mr Louis Mathew-Alozie objected to the motion and urged the court to strike out the entire case for lack of merit.

After listening to the submissions, the judge, Justice Usman Na’Abba, adjourned the case till November 14 for judgement. (Daily Trust)
