BREAKING: Governor El-Rufai to create 3 Emirates out of Zazzau
POLITICS DIGEST– Indications have emerged that they are plans by governor Nasiru Elrufai to create additional emirates out of Zazzau. This was coming after he exhausted all efforts to convince the kingmakers to recommend his ally Ahmed Nuhu Bamalli as a possible successor of the late emir of Zazzau Shehu Idris.
The Emirates are Kaduna, Zaria and Kudan.
Already a draft bill for the amendment of Emirates and Chieftaincy bill is being prepared for onward submission to the State Assembly for amendment.
If the bill is assented, Magajin Garin Zazzau would be the Emir of Kaduna, while Yarima would likely be in Zaria and Iya Aminu at Kudan.
