“Before, there was a better security network when we had the emirate in Kano. The Emirs will know who came to Kano, their ward, where are the people coming from, what their business is, are the visitors.
“But now, you will see that some people will be trooping into the state without this being checked. If this can be checked, there won’t be the problem of someone camping and start attacking people.”
Babba disclosed that the security situation in Kano state will improve with the powers given to the emirs to check all the excesses of people coming in.
“It is because of the failure of traditional institutions to be established and given the power to look at all affairs, especially in security.
“These institutions need to be rebuilt and put into the constitution of Nigeria and be given an absolute role, especially in terms of security, they have a better network.
“With this additional creation of emirate councils, the security situation of the state will improve by giving the powers to the emirs to check all the excesses of people coming in,” he added.
