Referring to a reported request by a group named Coalition For The Protection Of Democratic Rights Groups (COPDORG), also known as Kungiyar ‘Yan Dangwale, the letter highlighted the possible negative impact on the Bichi Emirate and other emirates if the request to abolish the newly-established emirate system was granted.

The group underscored the importance of maintaining the existing social order, peace, and tranquility in the state, cautioning that dismantling the new emirates could disrupt these vital aspects.

They urged the legislature to dismiss COPDORG’s request and any similar calls, advocating instead for actions that promote peaceful coexistence among the people, particularly during challenging times. The group stressed the populace’s attachment to their emirs and emirates, warning that any regressive measures to abolish the current administrative structure would jeopardize peace and security, potentially leading to widespread discontent.

Finally, they implored the House to avoid succumbing to sentiment and stirring confusion or anarchy, emphasizing the need to uphold the state’s dignity and unity.
