Gaya Emirate is made up of Gaya,Ajingi,Albasu,Wudil,Garko,Warawa,Gezawa and Gabasawa LGAs.

The implication of creating additional emirates is that the powers of the present Emir of Kano, Malam Muhammad Sanusi ll, will be reduced.

The four proposed emirates are presently being headed by district heads and if upgraded, will have emirs as heads.
