Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has warned against any attempt to destabilize the peace of Kano State amid the ongoing tussle over the Emirship throne. Atiku, the 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), criticized the Federal Government’s deployment of soldiers in Kano, stating that it is an upset to the peace and security of the state and a breach of the 1999 Constitution.

Atiku argued that the Kano State House of Assembly (KSHA) passed the amended Kano State Emirate Council (Repeal) Bill 2024 in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution, and Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf subsequently signed it into law. The law repealed the 2019 version, which had balkanized the ancient Kano Emirate into five.
