Written by gcsjjustified

The Sokoto State House of Assembly has passed the Sokoto Emirate Council Amendment Bill through the first and second readings. This bill seeks to reduce the powers of the Sultan of Sokoto, including his authority to appoint kingmakers and district heads without government approval. The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has urged the Sokoto assembly to halt the bill, arguing that it aims to whittle down the Sultan's powers.
