As more reactions continues to trail the controversial creation of four new emirates by Governor Ganduje in Kano State, three princes of Kano have rejected the offer to be appointed as Emir of Bichi, one of the four new emirates created by Ganduje on May 8, in an alleged move to checkmate the powers of the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II.
The governor was said to have had a meeting with Wamban Kano, Aminu Bayero; Chiroman Kano, Nasiru Bayero and district heads of Rano, Gaya and Karaye at the Government House on Thursday night.
The offer to serve as Emir of Bichi was first made to Chiroman Kano Nasiru Bayero, who rejected outrightly.

The governor then pushed the offer to Chiroma’s elder brother, Aminu Bayero, who also turned it down.
Ganduje’s third option was Galadiman Kano, Abbas Sanusi, the father of the state chairman of All Progressives Congress, APC, Abdullahi Abbas.
“When the offer was made to Galadima, he contacted Emir Sanusi, notifying him about the decision.
“The emir told him the choice is now left for the Dabo clan to be parties to the desecration of their heritage or be parties to the defense of their heritage,” a royal source quoted the emir as saying.
“From all indications, it is unlikely if Galadima will accept the offer. He too is angry with the creation of more emirates in Kano.”
Meanwhile, Ganduje, has said the creation of more emirates in Kano was not a “vendetta” against the Emir, Sanusi.
