Kano Emirates: I’m more Fulani than noisemakers, says Ganduje

KANO State Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has described those criticising the four emirates he created as noisemakers.

He said the critcs have no link to Fulani clan.
He said: “I am more Fulani than many of them. Some do not even have any trace to Fulani clan.”
During the creation of Bichi, Rano, Karaye and Gaya Emirates from the then Kano Emirate, there were criticisms from some quarters.

Some critics suggested that Ganduje did that to erode traditional Fulani historical dynasty.
Ganduje, however, maintained that “such individuals, who do not see good in what we did by the creation of more emirates, are mere noisemakers”.
He spoke when the Emir of Rano, Alhaji Tafida Abubakar (Autan Bawo), alongside elders and leaders from the emirate visited him for the role he played before the emergence of Alasan Ado Doguwa as the House of Representatives’ Majority Leader.
Doguwa represents Tudunwada/Doguwa Federal Constituency Kano State. District Head of Sumaila Alhaji Ibrahin Ado Bayero represented the emir.
“None of them can tell me he is more Fulani than I am. My grand grandfathers from both paternal and maternal side were all Fulani. So, also my grand grandmothers from both sides are all Fulani. Who among such people is more Fulani than me?” the governor queried.
