The Kano State Government of All Progressive Congress, APC and the opposition, New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, have engaged in a war of words over allegations that the Kwankwaso-led NPP would immediately cancel the newly created four emirates councils if the party wins the forthcoming election.

The controversy began when the Kano State government said that following the consolidation of the new emirates in the state, the stage has been set for the incorporation of the traditional institution into its sectoral development programmes to accommodate the overall socio-economic needs of the people, as against the alleged NNPP plan of dissolution of the four council’s immediately after coming to office.

Kano State’s Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, who doubles as the APC Gawuna/Garo Campaign Council spokesperson had said: “Since the new emirates were created to make the institution stand the test of time and move in the same pace with the global world, the All Progressives Congress (APC) government would make the monarchs stakeholders in the implementation of its development agenda, rather than sacking them.”

However, in a quick reaction to the allegations, NNPP spokesperson Abdullahi Abubakar Rogo challenged the Kano Government to publish where, when and who made that statement amongst the NNPP chieftains.

Rogo, the NNPP spokesperson insisted that there was nowhere the party made that statement.

“This allegation is new to us we don’t know who said it amongst all our members, in fact, nobody said it, that is never part of our plans, [it] is just baseless allegations, nothing more,” he said.
