The carving out of additional emirates by the State House of Assembly has continued to generate mixed reactions from Kano indigenes and Nigerians.

However, in what seems to be a hit back to critics, Ganduje in a twitter post on his handle @GovUmarGanduje, tweeted “For easier local administration as Kano state moves in a new direction to deliver community based growth, we have decided to create 4 new Emirates for our great state.”
