Samuel Esq, Fariha Sani Abdullahi, Yahaya Isah Abdulrasheed, ACIArb, (UK) and Amira Hamisu.

In one of their reliefs, the kingmakers said giving effect to the purported law has distorted history, especially as it regards to the positions they are holding in the emirate.

The top emirate council members further said their position is a heritage in trust for their respective clans of Jobawa, Sullubawa, Yolawa and Dambazawa.
