Members of the Movement for the creation of states in Kano State, led by Senator Mas’ud El-Jibrin Doguwa, emphasized that over the past four decades, they have persistently advocated for the division of Kano State due to its substantial size and population, in order to accelerate its development.
During a courtesy call at the National Assembly, Senator Doguwa made this declaration, urging the Deputy Senate President, Senator Barau Jibril to support the initiative.
Ismail Mudashir, Special Adviser (Media & Publicity) to the Deputy President of the Senate, stated that the movement was received by Senator Barau Jibril, who chairs the Senate Committee on Constitution Review.
Senator Doguwa expressed his hope that the Deputy Senate President would back the project and praised him for his contributions to various projects spanning the three senatorial districts of Kano State.
“We want two more states to be created out of the present Kano State. This will bring about much-needed development. In the last 40 years, we have been advocating the creation of two more states from Kano. We are not pushing for it to fight anybody but to attract development,’’ he said.
He went on to acknowledge the Deputy Senate President’s performance and his significant role in the APC’s electoral success in Kano State.
Senator Doguwa attributed the growth and development of all emirates in Kano to the projects that the Deputy Senate President has attracted to the state.
In his response, Senator Barau I. Jibrin, the Deputy President of the Senate, assured the movement’s members advocating for the creation of Tiga and Gari states from Kano State that the National Assembly would be impartial and considerate in the review of the 1999 Constitution.
Senator Barau further pledged that the 10th Assembly would provide equal opportunities for all groups advocating for state creation to present their cases.
He lauded the perseverance of the members of the movement for Tiga and Gari states, who have maintained their efforts throughout the years.
