Decentralization Of Kano Emirate: A Great Tyranny Perpetrated Under The Shield Of The Law And In The Name Of Social Justice- Giwa Murtala Omotola - Moore

As a progressive Youth what i resolved to do initially was to keep mute over the recent happening in Kano State against the neoteric bill that was passed by Kano State House Of Assembly, the bill to "create additional Four first class Emirates" in Kano State. I came to realise that if we don't speak who will speak for us and I also discern the fact that silence is a mammoth crime against humanity, our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter to us and the farthest measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of pleasure and comfortability, but where he stands at the times of challenge and controversy.

Platonically, Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty. Is democracy a cause or a blessing to our Nation?

I was surprise when I heard it yesterday on radio programme on my way home in a public transport that Kano State House Assembly lawmakers have approved the bill for the amendment of the local government and chieftaincy affairs law and that Governor Umar Ganduje have also assented to the bill the same day the bill was passed by the lawmakers. The four new Emirates will be situated in Rano, Gaya, Karaya and Bichi.

There is no tyranny greater than that which is perpetrated under the shield of the law and in the name of justice. Its glaring that Umar Ganduje move is a ploy to reduce the influence of the incumbent Emir of Kano, he did that so that he will be able to use divide and rule tactics among the emirs when the need arises. 

The state government have murdered one of the largest and greatest emirate in Sub-sahara Africa, the decentralisation of the Kano Emirate have thereby reduced the number of emirates under the influence of the sitting Emir of Kano. There is no regard for our  long age custom and tradition. The Emirate that has been in existence even before the birth of the Governor.

How can we neglect our culture for political gains, it's very sad that we don't attribute any uniqueness to our culture and tradition again, how can the state government speedily decentralize an emirate that was created in 1805 and the council that was formed in 1903 after the British pacification of the Sokoto Caliphate. 

In a statement made available to VAM News that, In 1963 Ado Bayero became the emir, he reigned for 50 years until his death in 2014 then Emir Muhammed Sanusi II takeover from him, he is still the emir till date. We must understand that Ganduje is not destroying HRH Sanusi Muhammed Sanusi II, his agenda is to divide and undermine one of the strongest and most reputable institution as well as one of the most treasured heritage in Africa, just for political vendetta. Why not  dethrone the Emir instead of destroying the emirate?

However, the action of the Kano State Government and Kano State House of Assembly members towards HRH Sanusi Muhammad Sanusi II is melancholic in nature. The Emir is truly a benevolent, intelligent and progressive King. He’s a rare gem. To many the Kano Emirate symbolizes the perseverance of the North. What Governor Umar Ganduje  did is an insult to the heritage and culture of Kano's emirate. 

This is utterly miraculous and disrespectful to our age long culture and tradition. We must put an end to this act so that other Governors will not adopt this same divide and rule strategy.
