The Kano state house of assembly has passed Kano emirates council law (repeal bill) 2024 after scaling 3rd reading.

 

The law has abrogated establishment of 5 new Emirates in the state.

 

All offices established under the repealed law have been set aside by the new bill.

 

Also all district heads elevated or appointed under the repealed law are to revert to their previous positions.

 

The Kano State Emirates Council (Amendment number 2) Law, 2024, was sponsored by the Majority Leader and member representing the Dala Constituency, Lawan Hussaini Chediyar Yan Gurasa.

 

The law which created five new emirates was first assented to by ex-Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, on December 5, 2019.

 

The governor assented to an amendment to the law on 14 October, 2020 and signed another amendment on 11 April, 2023.

 

Section 3(1) of the law established five distinct emirates; Kano, Bichi, Rano, Gaya and Karaye, with Kano and Karaye having eight local government areas of jurisdiction each, while Bichi and Gaya emirates share 9 local government areas of jurisdiction each, Rano Emirate enjoys jurisdiction over 10 local government areas out of the 44 local councils in the state.

 

When Emir Muhammadu Sanusi, who chaired the council, was deposed on March 9, 2020, the law was amended to read: “There shall be the chairman of the council who shall be the emir, Kano Emirate”.

 

Section 12 provides that the governor may grade the office of an emir first, second, or third class subject to the approval of the House of Assembly.

 

A principal officer of the assembly, who did not want his name mentioned, said “no Jupiter can stop the assembly from amending the law.”

A helicopter carrying Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi experienced a “hard landing” while he was visiting East Azerbaijan, as reported by the Tasnim news agency on Sunday.

 

The incident occurred under foggy conditions, which have so far prevented emergency crews from reaching the aircraft.

 

“The esteemed president and company were on their way back aboard some helicopters, and one of the helicopters was forced to make a hard landing due to the bad weather and fog,” Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi said in comments aired on state TV.

 

“Various rescue teams are on their way to the region, but because of the poor weather and fog, it might take time for them to reach the helicopter.”

 

He added, “The region is a bit (rugged) and it’s difficult to make contact. We are waiting for rescue teams to reach the landing site and give us more information.”

 

The passengers on the helicopter included President Raisi, Ayatollah Al Hashem Imam of Tabriz, Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian, East Azerbaijan Governor Malik Rahmati, and several other officials.

 

Following the report of the incident, Red Crescent Relief Forces, along with auxiliary military and law enforcement units, launched a comprehensive search effort to locate the helicopter.

 

According to Tasnim, some of the president’s companions on the helicopter managed to communicate with Central Headquarters, suggesting the possibility of no casualties.

 

The helicopter was part of a convoy of three helicopters, with the other two helicopters, carrying ministers and officials having safely reached their destination.

 

The exact status of Raisi’s helicopter remains unclear.

 

Earlier on Sunday, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi was in Azerbaijan to inaugurate a dam with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev.

 

The dam is the third collaborative project between Iran and Azerbaijan built on the Aras River.

France has allegedly deployed troops, instituted a curfew, and joined twenty-five other countries to ban TikTok in its Pacific territory of New Caledonia in response to escalating protests and unrest since Monday, Prime Minister Gabriel Attal announced.

 

A state of emergency was declared for at least 12 days, significantly enhancing police powers to quell the turmoil that has resulted in four deaths and over 100 arrests.

 

The unrest has also left more than 300 people injured following violent protests over voting changes pushed by Paris.

 

The situation further deteriorated today with the deaths of four individuals, including a security services officer.

 

After a two-hour security meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron and top ministers, Prime Minister Attal addressed parliament, emphasising that the state of emergency aims “to restore order in the shortest time possible.”

 

New Caledonia’s airport is currently closed to international flights. Soldiers have been deployed to secure the territory’s ports and airport, Attal informed during a crisis ministerial meeting in Paris.

 

Louis Le Franc, the territory’s High Commissioner, requested the deployment of troops and has announced a curfew and a ban on TikTok.

 

These emergency measures grant authorities greater powers to enforce travel bans, conduct searches, and detain individuals deemed a threat to public order.

 

France has dispatched 500 police officers to the territory, akin to its other overseas territories such as Martinique and Reunion Island.
