The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has revealed that it would not be surprised if the Sokoto State Government decides to divide its emirates.
The Secretary-General of ACF,Anthony Sani said this in a chat with The Interview, a political magazine.
Recall that the Kano State government has created four new emirates. These emirates are as follows: Gaya, Bichi, Karaye and Rano; bringing the total number of Emirates in the state to five.
When he was questioned if he thought Sokoto, the last emirate standing, would also be broken up, Sani said: “I cannot tell precisely because governance and traditions of society are dynamic and in a state of flux.
“If language, which is emblematic of culture, is dynamic, traditional institution is subject to change.
“There will be nothing exotic or quixotic if such changes take place in Sokoto State,” he disclosed.
