Kano State Government has appointed Nasiru Ado Bayero as the new Emir of Bichi, replacing his elder brother, Aminu Ado Bayero, who was earlier named as the 15th Emir of Kano.
Until his new appointment, Nasiru Ado Bayero was the Tafida as well as Chiroma of Kano.
The Secretary to the State Government, Usman Alhaji, announced the appointment of the new emir of Bichi at a news conference on Monday in Kano.
He said the appointment was ratified based on the recommendation of the three Bichi Emirate kingmakers.
The SSG named the kingmakers as Madawakin Bichi and District Head of Bagwai, Nura Shehu-Ahmad; Makaman Bichi and District Head of Tofa, Isyaku Umar-Tofa and Sarkin Bai Bichi and District Head of Makoda, Wada Waziri.
According to him, the appointment was also based on Section 1 (13) of Emirate Council Law 2019 which empowers the state governor to appoint a new Emir in Kano state.
