Mr. Abdullahi Ganduje, the Kano state Governor has described the court order asking him not to issue appointment letters to the new Emirs in the newly created Kano Emirates as late arrival.
The Governor on Sunday disclosed that the court order purportedly issued by the court restraining him from splitting the Emirates does not exist.
Ganduje said the issue of court order does not arise because the appointment letters were already issued before the order came.
A Kano High Court had on Friday issued an order stopping the governor from appointing Emirs in the newly created Emirates.
The Kano State House of Assembly on Wednesday passed a law creating four emirate councils.
The newly created Emirate Councils are Rano, Bichi, Gaya and Karaye.
Mr. Nasiru Saminu, the presiding Judge in a suit filed by Mr. Rabiu Sule Gwarzo, gave an interim order directing all parties in the suit to maintain status quo pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.
Mr. Muhammad Garba, the state commissioner for information disclosed that the government was not aware of any court order, adding that they were neither served, nor was the Attorney General of the state.
Mr. Mallam Auwal, Chief Press Secretary to Ganduje, in a press conference said the appointment letters were issued to the Emirs before the court order.
