The order also opposed the dissolution of four emirates: Bichi, Gaya, Karaye, and Rano.

According to The Nation, Muhammadu Sanusi II, the 14th Emir of Kano, has returned to the throne after a four-year hiatus following Governor Yusuf’s signing of the Kano State Emirates Councils (Repeal) Bill 2024.

However, the court instructed all parties to maintain the current situation until the suit filed by Sarkin Dawaki Babba and Aminu Babba-Dan’Agundi is decided.
