SWITZERLAND, DECEMBER 05 – The Kano State House of Assembly on Thursday passed the controversial Kano Emirates Council Bill 2019, which seeks to create four additional emirates in the state.

The bill, which was sent to the House on Monday by the state Executive Council, was read for the third time on Thursday morning and passed into law with very little alteration.
