The Kano State House of Assembly has passed a bill dissolving all the five emirate councils in the state.  

This followed deliberations on the floor of the house during plenary session held in Kano. 

The move came as the Kano State Emirate Council Amendment Bill was considered and passed after successfully scaling second and third readings on the floor of the Kano State House of Assembly. 

The Deputy Speaker, Alhaji Muhammad Bello Butu Butu, who articulated the rationale behind the dissolution of the emirate councils, emphasized that repealing the law that divided the Kano Emirate into five separate entities would help revive the lost glory of Kano. 

He further stated that the division of Kano Emirate into five reduced the capacity and dignity of the state at the national level, a sentiment re-echoed by the Majority Leader, Alhaji Lawan Hussaini Dala and other members of the Assembly.
