Opinion: Kano Emirate Crisis: Treating the Matter With the Urgency It Deserves, By Friends of Democracy

The federal government and, particularly, the Presidency should treat this matter with the seriousness it deserves.

We are concerned: (1) That the new policy could lead to a breakdown of social cohesion and unity in Kano State; (2) That emerging divisions on the issue could lead to the politicisation of traditional authority in Kano; (3) That violence might erupt due to popular opposition to the new Emirate structure. Our Prayers A. That the people of Kano should remain calm and reach out in a peaceful manner to the relevant authorities to reconsider the decisions taken; B. That since s court of competent jurisdiction has directed that the process of restructuration should discontinue until a decision is reached on the substantive case, all parties should comply with the rule of law and stay action while reflecting on the way forward; C. That the Kano State House of Assembly reconvenes immediately to trigger the legislative process of holding public hearings in the overarching interest of peace; D. That the Kano State Government harkens to the voices of moderation by closely working with the House of Assembly, Traditional Rulers and Elders in having a rethink; E. That the president of Nigeria uses his good offices to appeal to the authorities of Kano State to speedily engage in a reversal of the process. It should be noted that a minor eruption of violence from Kano can easily conflagrate the region and, possibly, the country. People are angry at various levels and for various reasons, and some may use this as an opportunity to vent their anger. Alhaji Bashir Othman Tofa Read more: Premium Times
