Indications have emerged that there are plans by governor Nasiru Elrufai to create additional emirates from the existing Zazzau emirate.
This is coming after he exhausted all efforts to convince the kingmakers to recommend his ally Ahmed Nuhu Bamalli as a possible successor of the late emir of Zazzau Shehu Idris.
According sources, the Emirates are Kaduna, Zaria and Kudan.
Already a draft bill for the amendment of Emirates and Chieftaincy bill is being prepared for onward submission to the State Assembly for amendment.
If the bill is assented, Magajin Garin Zazzau would be the Emir of Kaduna, while Yarima would likely be in Zaria and Iya Aminu at Kudan.
