The Kano State governor, Abdulallahi Gaduje and Emir of Kano, Mohammadu Sanusi have been asked by a High Court in Kano to maintain the status quo in respect of the interim order issued against Ganduje on May 10.
Recall that on May 10, a court restrained Kano State Government from appointing four new emirs in the state which was still subsisting, pending the determination of the motion on notice.
Justice Saminu, in his ruling, ordered that all the parties in the suit should still maintain status quo pending the hearing of motion on notice.

He adjourned the matter until July 15 for hearing.
The Counsel to Ganduje, the former Attorney General of Kano State, Barr. Ibrahim Mukhtar, urged the court to vacate the order of maintaining status quo through oral application, since it’s now over twenty days since the exparte order has expired.
He averred that sub section 4 also gives the court power for the interest of justice to extend the life span.
The Counsel to the applicant, Lateef Fagbemi, SAN, objected the oral application to vacate the order, by informing the court that the application should be accompanied with a written address and that the application is not ripe for hearing”
