Emirate Tussle:Justice Liman’s Ruling Not Helpful For The Judicial Process -Yadudu

Published

Court Sign

 

Reacting to the ruling, renowned constitutional lawyer, Professor Auwalu Yadudu, told Daily Trust that the judge’s pronouncements were strange and baffling by approbating and reprobating in the same breath.

He said the development was not helpful for the judicial process, stressing that the judge assuming jurisdiction on the fundamental human rights aspect and refusing the same on the validity of the substance of the case–the Kano emirates law–has “muddled up the case, and it is very unbecoming of a judge who has now been elevated to the Court of Appeal”.

Professor Yadudu clarified that while he was not accusing the judge of any impropriety, the pronouncements were unbecoming. “How can you say the actions taken in pursuant of a law are set aside, and then say you are not delving into the validity of the said law?” he queried.
Prof. Yadudu said further that the judge had more or less held that he lacked jurisdiction on the issue by transferring the case to another judge, but still went ahead to set aside the governor’s actions.

He said that the ex-parte order should no longer be of any currency because it is being challenged at the Appeal Court, and the judge himself admitted knowledge of this by granting a stay of proceedings and also deciding not to grant an order to nullify the law.

“All these are avoidable. It is not helpful for the judicial process. It is strange and doesn’t speak well of the judge. The question of whether the governor’s actions came before and after the exparte order is a question of fact or evidence. It seems from the record that the order came after,” he said.

Kano Emirate Law 2024 Remains ,But Governor’s Action Voided

Published

Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero

A Federal High Court in Kano has set aside all steps taken by Kano state government to repeal the Kano Emirates Council Law.

The Kano House of Assembly had repealed the law after which Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf implemented it by dethroning Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero as Emir of Kano.

The governor also reversed the creation of four emirates, Bichi, Rano Karaye and Gaya, and sacked the Emirs appointed by his predecessor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

The law was also relied upon to re-appoint the 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, who was dethroned by Ganduje in 2020, as the 16th Emir of Kano.

But a kingmaker in the former Kano emirate, Aminu Babba Danagundi, the Sarkin Dawaki Babba, challenged the propriety of the law and asked the court, through his counsel, Chikaosolu Ojukwu (SAN), to declare it null and void.

In his ruling on Thursday,  Justice Abdullahi Muhammad Liman set aside the action of Kano government, ordering parties to maintain status quo.

The judge held that the defendants were aware of the interim order granted by the court but chose to ignore it and went ahead with implementation of the law.

The judge held that he would assume his coercive powers to enforce compliance with his order.

However, the  judge transferred the case to Justice Simon Amobeda for continuation in view of his elevation to the Court of Appeal.

In a statement issued in Abuja, the association’s leader, Musa Mujahid Zaitawa, condemned Kwankwaso’s remarks as inflammatory and detrimental to national security.

Zaitawa asserted that such statements could exacerbate tensions and potentially incite violence in the region.

“Kwankwaso’s unfounded accusations against the federal government are not only reckless but also dangerous. They undermine efforts to combat terrorism and promote peace in Northern Nigeria,”

Zaitawa said. “We urge the authorities to take immediate action and arrest him to prevent further escalation of hostilities.”

Kwankwaso, a prominent political figure and former Governor of Kano State, made the controversial statement during a recent public address.

He accused the APC administration of failing to address the root causes of terrorism and instead contributing to its proliferation.

According to Kwankwaso, government actions and policies are inadvertently creating conditions conducive to the rise of a new breed of insurgents.

The situation remains tense as stakeholders from various sectors weigh in on the implications of Kwankwaso’s statement and the response from the Arewa Youths Merger Group.
